In August, 1838, H.M.S. Conway (Captain Bethune) called at Lakeba, from Tonga and later visited the port of Rewa, from where a boat was sent to explore the Rewa river. The party reached an elbow of the river just below the town of Viti. The missionaries Cargill and Jaggar penetrated forty miles up the river, to Naitasiri, in the following year.
