Violent Intentions of Rewa Towards Bau

Violent Intentions of Rewa Towards Bau.

In October, 1854, many Bau towns revolted, and joined Rewa. The King of Rewa triumphed; and was flushed with the prospect of speedily gaining his heart's desires,—of destroying Bau, and page 5 of killing and eating the Vunivalu (Tui Viti, better known as Thakombau).* He was afraid that he could not restrain his immense army, when he should come to Bau, from doing injury to the Mission-premises there, and therefore sent, desiring Mr. Waterhouse to remove; which request was, of course, disregarded.
