“No one, we are persoaded, ever heard the details given by Mr. Ellis at Mis. sionary Meetings, without the conviction of his possessing special claims to the regard and confidence of the Christian world. The simplicity and chasteness of his communications, the evident indications of honest feeling and unaffected integrity-and the interesting information respecting the manners, and customs, and natural history of the Sandwich Islands, which characterize his addresses at public meetings, might be expected to pervade the more copions intelligence contained in this volume; and we can assure our readers, that they will not be disappointed.”—Congregational Magazine.
“The reader who has any curiosity to be made acquainted with the actual state of this interesting portion of the Globe, must have recourse to Mr. Ellis's Volume. It will introduce him to a more accurate knowledge of the state of its population, than he can any where else acquire. It is written in a very pleasing and perspicuous style, the embellishments are respectably executed, and the publishers have certainly done their duty in regard to paper and print."-New Baptist Magazine.
“Mr. Ellis's philological remarks are remarkably distinct, and display a great acquaintance with the language."-Spirit and Manners of the Age.
“ This Volimme is very rich in information respecting the topography, natural phenomena, productions, people, custoins, superstitions, traditions, modern history, religion, and language of Hawaii.”—Home Missionary Magazine.
“ This interesting Traveller has communicated considerable interest to our minds, while attending him and his companions on their route ; we look around, through the medium of his representations, on new and strange scenes, and find our attention perpetually kept alive by objects of curiosity and wonder, and by new and diversified, but not extravagant, appearances of human character.”Bristol Gazette.
“ From the knowledge we possessed of the talents, acquirements, industry, and missionary accomplishments of Mr. Ellis, we were fully prepared for receiving from his pen an interesting narrative of the scenes which, in common with his American companions, he had witnessed amidst the far distant islands of the Pacific. But high as were the expectations to which personal intercourse had given birth, we are ready to acknowledge, that the work before us has far surpassed thenı; and recommend our readers to lose no time in obtaining one of the ablest works ever produced by a Christian Missionary.”—Evangelical Magazine,
