(B)   2 hours
Mercy [Partridge], like Edward [Partridge], was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. She was devoted to her beliefs and to her Congregational Church. When Mercy came of age, Congregationalist women began to take on new roles as crusaders for Christ, and she dreamed of becoming a missionary. At age twenty-four, Mercy was introduced to Samuel Whitney, who also wanted to serve a mission and was required to have a wife accompany him. Only two hours after meeting Samuel, she accepted his proposal of marriage, and they were soon wed. They were among the very first Protestant missionaries to preach Christianity in the Sandwich (later Hawaiian) Islands. For five months, they sailed the eighteen thousand miles from Boston around South America to Hawaii while crammed into a six-by-six foot cabin already filled with luggage, goods, and a single narrow bunk. Mercy kept an extensive record of her activities and correspondence from the time she sailed from Boston until her death in the Islands fifty-three years later. Her eight volumes of journal entries and twenty-three letter books are carefully kept by the Mission Houses Museum in Honolulu.
