Ko Sinetila moe g. talanoa niihi kuo hiki - HORSFALL, William (translator) - 1862. 
WorldCat (5 copies); for the author: ?Blain biographical directory of Anglican clergy in the South Pacific? (Anglicanhistory.org). Rare edition of various fairy tales, including Cinderella ("Sinetila"), translated into the Tongan language by William Horsefall. The clergyman Horsefall (1862-1942) officiated in Paparoa (New Zealand) and Lahaina (Hawaii) before becoming principal of the Government College in Nuku'alofa on Tonga in 1896-1898. Since Horsefall spent only two years of his life on Tonga and the New Zealand printer changed its firm name in 1900, it is reasonable to assume that the fairytales were translated and printed between 1896 and 1900. With "W. Horsfall" written on the cover and title-page and the name of the author coloured in ink; numerous annotations in blue and pink ink throughout which have somewhat bled through. Wrappers slightly soiled with the remains of a title-page or advertisement on the back.
