This article focuses on Missionary Captain James Wilson and the mission of the London Missionary Society (LMS) to the Pacific. The society was founded on September 21, 1795, after two articles were printed in the "Evangelical Magazine." One of these pieces came from Thomas Haweis. It was a review of Melville Horne's "Letters on Missions: Addressed to the Protestant Ministers of the British Churches." For the mission to the Pacific, Wilson had volunteered as the captain. The instructions for the LMS mission are described.
