Excerpt from A Visit to the South Seas, in the U. States Ship Vincennes, During the Years 1829 and 1830, Vol. 1 of 2: Including Notices of Brazil, Peru, Manilla, the Cape of Good Hope, and St. Helena

The circumstances which compelled me to bid a reluctant farewell to the Sandwich Islands, in the year 1825, are known to the public. A partial resto ration of the health of Mrs. Stewart was effected by the residence of a year in the United States; but all medical advisers interdicted a return to a tropical climate, and any future exposure to the privations of a missionary life. It became desirable, therefore, that I should select some Sphere for the exercise of the duties of my office, other than the field of my first choice.

Familiarity with the sea long intercourse with seamen; close observation of their character; and strong attachment to individuals of their number, had implanted a lively interest in my heart for them, as a class Of my fellows; and led me, in connection with circumstances which it is unnecessary to explain, to di rect my attention to the united states naval ser vrce. As early as the spring of 1827, I communicated my views on this subject to the gentlemen then at the head of that department of our government, with an application for a chaplainship, when the relation existing between myself and the American Board of Foreign Missions should cease.
