"The text, taken by Samuel Ruggles (Dibble) from the book of Genesis, contains 12 numbered sections of questions and answers. It was issued with printed wrappers; the title repeats on the front, and the back wrapper has a caption title "No Ka Hele Ana i ke Kula Sabati," followed by eight numbered paragraphs. The printed minutes of the June 1833 General Meeting record an edition of 10,000 copies."--David W. Forbes: Hawaiian National Bibliography 1780-1900, Vol. II, item #815.

The Hawaiian mission of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) had its beginnings in 1820 when a company of missionaries sailed for Hawaii, lead by Hiram Bingham. "With abundat courage and an inflexible will, yet cheerful, good-natured, and highly capable, he was from the beginning the natural leader of the mission (caricatured as Abner Hale in James Michner's novel Hawaii).... The phenomenal success of the mission due in considerable part to the role he and his wife, Sybil, played in winning the strong allegiance of the principal chiefs. [She] did much to bring the powerful regent Kaahumanu and others to the Christian faith. Hiram, too, won the allegiance of Hawaiians, but his forcefulness not only brought him into conflict with foreigners who resented missionary interference with their commercial, political, and sexual interests, but also irritated collegues... He helped create a writing system for the Hawaiian language, translated several books of the Bible, and produced Elementary Lessons, First Book for Children, Scripture Catechism, First Teacher, and a hymn and tune book."--Gerald H. Anderson: Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions, (c1998) p.63-64. Samuel Ruggles and his wife Nancy sailed with the first company of missionaries to Hawaii which also included the printer Elias Loomis. They spent 15 years at the Hawaiian Island working as teachers. Ruggles also translated the Catechism on Genesis, with some help from Sheldon Dibble--another missionary who arrived in the fourth company of missionaries, as a 22 year old, as a 22 year old.

The American Baptist Missionary Union was formed out of Adoniram Judson converting from Congregationalism to Baptist on his voyage to India in 1812. His need of support spurred a number of small Baptist missionary societies to form. These were consolidated in 1814 as "The General Convention of the Baptist Denomination in the United States of America for Foreign Missions. It was reorganized in 1846 after the Southern Baptist had withdrawn the previous year, as the American Baptist Missionary Union."

1847 Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched with new linen thread, light foxing. pamphlet Octavo New-York: Printed for the American Home Missionary Society, by William Osborn, Spruce-Street, Corner of Nassau. 
BUSHNELL, HORACE. Barbarism the first Danger. A Discourse for Home Missions, by Horace Bushnell, Pastor of the North Church, Hartford, Conn. New-York: Printed for the American Home Missionary Society, by William Osborn, Spruce-Street, Corner of Nassau. 1847. Octavo.

Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched with new linen thread, light foxing. Collation: 1-28. Pagination: (1) title, (1) author's note, [3]-32pp.

Horace Bushnell (1802-1876) American Congregational divine, pastor of North Church of Hartford, Conn. 1833-1859. Bushnell was a pioneer of liberal theology in New England. There were repeated formal accusations of heresy brought against him, but his church stood by him and he was not tried. We offer Bushnell's sermon on Judges xvii.13, "Then said Micha, now know I that the Lord will do me good, seeing I have a Levite to my priest." "A very unimportant chapter of biography is here preserved to us--save that if we take the subject as an exponent of his times, we shall find a serious and mementous truth illustrated in his conduct. He lives in the time of the Judges, that is the emigrant age of Israel. It is the time, when his nation are passing through the struggles incident to a new settlement, a time therefore of decline towards barbarism. Public security is gone. The people have run wild. Forms are more sacred than duties, and a costly church furniture is taken as synonymous with a godly life. It is at just such times that we are to look for the union of great crimes and scrupulous acts of devotion..."

DAY, JEREMIAH. A Sermon, Delivered in Boston, Sept. 17, 1823, before the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, at their Fourteenth Annual Meeting. By Jeremiah Day, D.D. LL.D. President of Yale College. Published by request of the Boards. Boston: Printed by Crocker and Brewster, No. 50 Cornhill. 1823. Octavo. Disbound pamphlet, side stitched, light to medium foxing. Collation: 1-34. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-23, (1) blank. Amer. Imprints #12340. Jeremiah Day (1773-1867) "For sixty-nine years he was officially connected with Yale College. On April 22, 1817, he was appointed president, succeeding Timothy Dwight, and was both installed and ordained to the ministry on July 23. In his seventy-fourth year he insisted on resigning, but was immediately elected a member of the Corporation, in which office he served until a month before his death, which occurred just after the completion of his ninety-fourth year... Although, as described by Timothy Dwight, the younger, 'he was a wise disciplinarian, a judicious governor, a thorough and accurate scholar, a valuable teacher, and a man of intelligent and penetrative mind,' his influence was due chiefly to his goodness and his reputation for deep wisdom."--Dict. Amer. Biog. V:162. We offer his sermon on Nehemiah 4:3 "And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work; so that I cannot com down, Why should the work cease, while I leave it, and come down to you." Day identifies the missionary cause with the "great work."

John Foster (1770-1843) English Baptist minister & author. "In 1792 he commenced preaching, and officiated among the Baptists at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Dublin, Chichester, Downend, near Bristol, and Frome in Somersetshire, in succession. Obliged by a glandular affection of the neck to discontinue preaching, he retired to Stapleton, near Bristol, and here he devoted himself to literary composition, for which few have been so well qualified.... In 1819 sic [1820] appeared the Essays on the Evils of Popular Ignorance... This the author considered his best work, and is the one by which he wished his literary claims to be estimated. The fact of its not having sold so well as his other Essays, was, he used to say, a proof of Popular Ignorance. The author was not the only admirer of his performance: 'A work which, popular and admired as it confessedly is, has never met with the thousandth part of attention which it deserves. It appears to me that we are now at a crisis in the state of our country and of the world, which renders the reasoning and exhortations of that eloquent production applicable and urgent beyond all power of mine to express--Dr. J. Pye Smith'"--Allibone's Critical Dict. of Engl. Lit. and British and American Authors, p.621. "He [Foster] became involved in a controversy between the Serampore missionaries and the committee of the Baptist Missionary Society, strongly siding with the missionaries... Foster's opinions were often controversial. He believed that `churches are useless and mischievous institutions, and the sooner they are dissolved the better' (letter, 10 Sept 1828). Though a Baptist minister, he never once administered baptism; nor did he believe in eternal punishment or the rite of ordination. Politically, he was a republican, and `never ceased to regard royalty and all its gaudy paraphernalia as a sad satire on human nature' (letter, 22 Feb 1842). He favoured parliamentary reform, Catholic emancipation, and popular education, and opposed the corn laws. The Bristol Mirror called him `an unaffectedly great and good man'.--Thomas Hamilton, `Foster, John (1770-1843)', rev. Jessica Hinings, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/9961, accessed 21 Feb 2013] (17667)

Hawes, though suspicious of some of its excesses, especially rampant emotionalism, was a proponent of revivalism... Hawes presided over a number of revivals in his congregation; Charles Grandison Finney preached there on several occasions. His prorevivalist views placed Hawes in opposition to one of his Congregational colleagues in Hartford, Horace Bushnell... Hawes was among those who brought Bushnell to trial for heresy."--Balmer: Ency. of Evangelicalism, p. 273. We offer Hawes' sermon before the American Board. Hawes reviews the history of the board and applies the text of I Samuel 7:12, "Hitherto hath the Lord helped us" to the history of the Board.
