She was received last sabbath with 6 other chiefs, to our communion. She came in this evening in a very friendly manner to express her kind regards for Mrs. Bingham now recovering from her illness which has excited no small sympathy among the natives, & to talk about the establishment of law in the Islands, & adopting as a nation the laws which God gave to Moses, as the basis of all law, & all civil relations.Kaahumanu was the Queen of Kamehameha I, and what Bringham writes about the Ten Commandments actually happened. In 1821 Hiram Bringham led the first pioneer group of missionaries to Hawaii, or the Sandwich Islands as they were then called, and became the real power and most influential person to the Kings and Queens of Hawaii.

"20 3/4" rate, very fine; ex-Honolulu Advertiser.The letter, from Betsey Lyons, wife of Rev. Lorenzo Lyons, to her sister-in-law in Cobain, Mass., a few weeks after their arrival describes the death of Kaahumanu: "...The principal event which has transpired in this nation-since our arrival-is the death of the regent Kaahumanu who was one of the bright examples of christian piety which have been redeemed from among the heathen, She died in faith, leaving the whole nation to lament her loss and none more than the missionaries, to whom she has been a faithful friend… All the vessels in the harbour wore their colours at half mast, and cannons were fired at intervals during the day …The chiefs were dressed in black and the missionaries attended in half mourning - also a respectable company of foreigners with badges of mourning, she was deposited in the same tomb with the late king and queen, who died in England."

Frazier enroute to the Sandwich Islands by Issac and Emily Bliss between[A round trip letter from Boston to the Sandwich Islands, 1837] and return to Boston. Very lengthy closely written eight page letter written while on board the ship Mary Frazier enroute to the Sandwich Islands by Issac and Emily Bliss between March 9 and April 26, 1837. The ship left Boston 14 December 1836 and arrived off the island of Maui 9 April 1837 after a remarkable voyage of 117 days. The Mary Frazer sailed for Boston on her return trip 26 April 1837, carrying this letter, which entered the mails with red "Boston, Ms./Aug 21" postmark and matching "SHIP" handstamp and ms. "27" cents due, then carried overland to Warsaw, Illinois.This ship carried the largest, and seventh, reinforcement sent to the Sandwich Islands by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, often called just the American Board. The letter is similar to a log. Emily gives the date and Latitude and Longitude of each entry. Issac Bliss was one of four ordained missionaries, in all 32, including a physician, school teachers and wives of all, but two single female teachers. The letter notes that the ship was only three days in rounding Cape Horn, which is remarkable. Most ships took several weeks, and Captain Bligh of H.M.S. Bounty fame had to turn eastward, around Africa's Cape of Good Hope, after loosing a month long battle with the wind. The return voyage to Boston was made in just 118 days, as opposed to 163 for the pioneer company in 1820. The letter includes a plan of accommodations on board the barque as drawn and detailed by Issac. A full transcript of this very lengthy letter is included with this lot.
