There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: The late 1820s and 1830s saw a Protestant religious revival called the Second Great Awakening which had a strong impact on American religion and reform. In New England evangelical enthusiasm led to the formation of missionary societies that sent clergy to foreign lands to bring bibles and religion to non-Christians. This is the report of some missionaries who had returned home from the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) for a visit.
