Samoa in Church History

Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson at his estate in Samoa
Mormon missionary to Samoa, Henry L. Bassett, also relates a humorous, albeit embarrassing, instance of fashion failure:
I continued on toward Apia but was almost ashamed to go through the town because my hat that I had worn while away so long at Lalovi was very soiled as a result of the many rains it had encountered.
To my chagrin I met Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson and wife, and Lloyd Osborne, his stepson. I turned my head and hurried by, screening myself with umbrella lest they might see and recognize me.
