Excerpt from Bartimeus, of the Sandwich IslandsThe pioneers of the Christian mission sent by the American Board in 1819, to the Sandwich Islands, early found among the thousands of their degraded inhabitants, a poor blind man, almost destitute of clothing, habitation, and friends. He was born at Waikapu, the central part of the low isthmus be! Tween the two divisions of the mountainous island of Maui, probably about the year 1785. His bar barous mother, following many of her unnatural and murderous countrywomen, attempted to bury him alive in his infancy; but he was rescued by a relative; and surviving the ravages of pestilence, war, and private violence, he reached the years of maturity.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
