Overview

Excerpt from John Williams: The Martyr Missionary of Polynesia

My Dear Sir, - I have read over and corrected the proof sheets of your Life of my beloved father, and in compliance with your request, certify to its general accuracy. May I point out one feature of his work as deserving of notice? - viz., his early employment of native teachers. My father had a good insight into character, and could select and train suitable men for the great work. He was the first of our modern missionaries to use native agents to pioneer the way for more cultured workers. This employment of native teachers has been a striking feature of our South Sea Mission, and may in some degree account for its rapid extension under the Divine blessing.
