The Hawaiian Missionary Society aimed to send missionaries from Hawaii to other Pacific islands. "The first annual report states that preparations were being made to send two missionaries, Rev. Mr. Snow and Rev. Luther H. Gulick, and their wives to Micronesia. A list of contributions made to the society shows the extraordinary generosity of native Hawaiian churches to this object ... From this date the annual reports include excerpts from letters of the missionaries both in Micronesia and in the Marquesas. Twelve annual reports were published between 1852 and 1863 ... The first three were printed at the American Mission Press; the fifth at the Polynesian office; and the remainder by the press of H.M. Whitney, or the Pacific Commercial Press. This is an important source of information about missionary work by native Hawaiian missionaries in Micronesia, the Marquesas and other parts of the Pacific" (Forbes)
