dau. Deacou Solomou, Dec. 3, 1830. He is the veuerable Mis-
siouary whom all the world reveres. His wife died at Preuahon,
Oahu, Oct. 2, 1873. I am exceediugly iudebted to him for his
exact and extensive account, of not only his own line, but his
collateral relatives. It very much exceeds my indebtedness to
any other of Joseph's descendants. I add a fuller account of his
life :

About January, 1804, he removed with his parents to Durham,
]Sr, Y. Here he was employed with his father on the farm, enjoy-
ing the benefits of the common school, and generally in winter of a
select school, till the age of sixteen. In the fall of 1814, he com-
menced the study of Latin, with a view to prepare for College.
The last of his teachers being a graduate of Williams College, he
was induced to enter at Williams. Two years were spent very
pleasantly there ; most of the third was spent in teaching a school,
and then he removed from Williams to Yale College, where he
graduated in September, 1821. By the recommendation of Presi-
dent- Day, the next two years he was employed as Principal of the
Academy in Kingston, Ulster county, N. Y. A third year was
spent in teaching a select school in Catskill, Greene county. He
then devoted himself with great ardor to the study of medicine,
at the same time teaching a select school in Durham, N. Y. The
three years allowed for studying a profession had not elapsed,
when he met with a change in his religious views. His mind had
been awakened to the interests of the- soul when he was a mem-
b)er of Yale College. Those impressions had not entirely worn
oft', but now, under the faithful preaching of their pastor. Rev.
Dr. Williston, his attention was called up to the subject of religion
as it had never been before. About the first of March, 1826, he
found relief in believing in an Almighty Redeemer, a hope which

Joseph, of Jlilford, Conn., and Hadley, 3Iass. 563

has never forsaken him. Religion became the all-absorbins: sub-
ject of his thought by day and by night. His pious friends now
urged him to leave the profession whicli ho had chosen, and direct
his attention to the Christian ministry; and some suggested that
his knowledge of medicine would not be needed at home, but
would increase his usefulness in some benighted land. He soon
came to the same conclusion himself, and Sept. 3, of that year,
he united with the Congregational Church in Durham, N. Y., and
soon after he entered the Theological Seminary at Auburn, where
he spent three years. While at Auburn, he offered his services
ito the American Board of Boston, for a Foreign Mission, and
they were accepted. Therefore, when his course at Auburn was
completed, they sent for him to go to Boston to attend the Medical
Lectures at "Cambridge, that he might in that department be better
prepared for the missionary service.

After marriage, he and his wife immediately joined a company
got up in the fall, and destined to the Sandwich Islands. They
all sailed from New Bedford, Dec. 28, 1830, in the ship New
England. The only road to the Islands then traveled was the
long one round Cape Horn, and the "New England" was out one
hundred and fifty-seven da3's before she arrived, June 6, 1831, at
Honolulu, the place of her destination. Soon after their arrival,
the new Missionaries were assigned to different stations over
the group, wherever there seemed to be the greatest opportunity
of doing good; and Mr. Baldwin, after a detention of several
months at Honolulu, during which time he preached in English
to foreign residents and seamen, on the second of Januar}', 1832,
sailed for his post at Ihaimea, a new station in the interior of
Hawaii, about two thousand feet above the level of the sea, near
the base of the famous Mauna Kea, which shoots its snowy top
more than fourteen thousand feet high. They were in the torrid
zone, but felt none of its burning heat. It was a region of almost
perpetual rains and driving storms. They labored about three
years in a field of heathenism sixty miles long, and no wonder
that, with nothing but the grass huts of the country to shield
them from the weather, his health gave way, and they were
obliged to seek a milder climate, which they found at Lahaiua, on
the Island of Maui. Mr. Baldwin moved to Lahaina as a mere
temporary change ; but the mild climate proved such a wonderful
restorer to his affected lungs, that it Ijecame his permanent abode.

It was then the favorite residence of the King, and nearly all the
high Chiefs of the Islands, with a population at first of four thou-
sand five hundred, and a great resort for whaleships.

The Mission was begun in 1823. Mr. Richards had been pastor
thirteen years. Under him, two hundred and fifty had been ad-
mitted. Mr. Baldwin was placed here as Pastor of the Church,
and to act as Physician for all the Mission families of Maui and
Molokai. Mrs. Baldwin, too, found a delightful field for her mis-
sionary zeal, in gathering meetings and schools for Hawaiian
women and children. They labored at Lahaina for thirty-four
years. It proved their great life-work, and they had great reason
to bless God for the success He gave them in their work. The
admission to the Church went up from two hundred and fifty to
about two thousand three hundred. Schools were advanced, and
the condition of the people improved. There was a powerful
revival of religion there, which lasted four years. It prevailed
also at all the Missionary stations on the Islands, and many thou-
sands were converted. It was witli no little regret that Mr.
Baldwin resigned his pastorate at Lahaina, in September, 1868.
He has since been employed, for the last four years, in teaching
a department of the native Theological Seminary, which is his
present work.
