1859 - 1859 (16 November) entire letter written by the missionary the Reverend George Gill at Raratonga, to his brother at Haverhill, Suffolk, England. The letter went via New Bedford 24 MAY (most probably carried from Raratonga by an American whaler) New York MY 25, Liverpool JU 4 and Newmarket JU 6 59. Also on the front of the letter are SHIP and 26, handstamps, applied in America and a 1/- manuscript marking applied on arrival in England. The letter has a very interesting account by George Gill of his travels with the Samoan Deputation to the islands and stations in Western Polynesia. In it he says The work has progressed and will progress. It would also humble you to see the cruel, naked painted savage, thirsting for human flesh and blood & triumphing in all deeds of wickedness & rapine and murder. A most interesting account of the times and a scarce letter sent via the USA.
