"To the Rev. W. Huckett from J.R. Moore. I can recommend Fiti as a guide and Sapolu for those who wish to live Samoan. It is half the cost of hotels and much better as you get fresh fruit, fowls, fish etc instead of tinned etc." J.R. Moore shaking hands with Sapolu outside his house. Sapolu, J.R.Moore and Fiti named. Sapolu's wife and family also pictured. One of a set of prints from Rev. William Huckett.; A mission to Samoa or Navigators Islands was started after a visit by John Williams in 1830, and it became a succesful mission, famous for its educational work. For example, the Malua Theological College was established in 1844 and the Leulumoega High School was established in 1890. A school for girls, called Papauta, was founded in 1892. By 1905 the indigenous Church was well organised and became effectively financially independent in the 1920s. A high percentage of the population was allied to LMS churches. The main LMS mission stations were on the islands of Upolu and Savaii in Western Samoa and Tutuila in Eastern Samoa.
