Jottings from the Pacific. With Sixteen Illustrations

Author: W. Wyatt Gill
Publisher: Religious Tract Society
Publish Date: 1886

            The title is well chosen for it is rather jottings than a full account. A pudding all made of plums would aptly describe Mr. Gill's book. Somehow we cannot think of a Gill without conjuring up coral islands and all sorts of romantic mission experiences upon them. The Biblical illustrations are not of the first water; but the natural history in the direction of fish is singularly full. Our chief delight in these jottings lies in the triumphs of the gospel over murderers and cannibals. These three books on Madagascar, Southern India, and the Pacific are worthy to go together into similar niches of honor in every missionary library throughout the world.
