[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]
Dec. 1st . . . Received the Lord's Supper with several of our natives. The congregation both in the morning and the evening consisted of about 900 In the evening they were particularly attentive when addressed by the Revd. Henry Williams on the last verses of Matthew's Gospel. I was much interested with the school. May the Lord be with us and pour his spirit on these people.
