A narrative of missionary enterprises in the South sea islands by John Williams( Book )
105 editions published between 1837 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 407 libraries worldwide
"Based on John Williams' meticulous documentation of his travels, this 1837 volume offers an insight into the perilous life of a missionary in the early nineteenth century. The author, an ironmonger by trade, set sail for the South Sea Islands in 1817 with the intention of spreading the gospel and introducing modern technology to the region. As well as recounting the frequent threats to his safety from angry natives, war, natural disaster and disease, Williams provides detailed surveys of the peoples, languages and natural environment he encountered and describes with great exuberance and humour 'the impression made upon barbarous people by their first intercourse with civilised man'."--Back cover

Journal of a missionary voyage in the Eastern Pacific, 1823 by John Williams( Book )
2 editions published in 1800 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The principal item on the microfilm is a journal describing a voyage made by the Revs. John Williams and Robert Bourne from Raiatea to Aitutaki, Mangaia, Atiu, Mitiaro, Mauke and Rarotonga in July-Aug. 1823, to propagate the Gospel. The journal appears to have been written, or written up, by Bourne for himself and Williams jointly, as Williams is referred to by name several times but Bourne is not. The document here microfilmed is a copy of the original made with what appears to have been a primitive type of carbon paper. There is a subscription in ink by Williams on the last page. Some passages in the journal are the same or similar to those in Williams' A narrative of missionary enterprises in the South Sea Islands, London, 1837. Other items on the microfilm are: a letter from Williams to his family from Raiatea, dated Nov. 9, 1822.; a copy of a letter from Tamatoa, chief of Raiatea, to the President of the United States, dated Raiatea, Sept. 10, 1829.; a letter from Williams to A. Birnie, dated Raiatea, Feb. 27, 1830; a letter from Williams to his sister Mary, dated Portsea, June 17, 1836; a letter from Williams to his sister, dated Cape Town, July 14, 1836 and a copy of an extract from the minutes of a meeting of the London Missionary Society in Samoa on Mar. 30, 1840, concerning news of the murder of Williams in the New Hebrides and his associate James Harris
