While at work on the building of a church Williams had need of his carpenter's square, so with a piece of charcoal he scribbled a brief note on a chip of wood, and asked a Rarotongan chief to hand it to his wife. It was a highly suspicious chief who handed the chip to Mrs. Williams a few minutes later. He watched her every movement as she read the note, tossed it to one side, and took the square from the tool-chest." - page 4.
