Survey the globe, each ruder realm explore;
BY J. STATHAM.
SAMUEL BAGSTER, 15, PATERNOSTER ROW.
Ar a time like the present, when Missionary operations are regarded with so much interest by some, and so scornfully derided by others, the Author of the following pages thought his Recollections of India might not be unacceptable to the former, and at the same time not altogether useless in removing the prejudices of the latter. If but one friend be gained to the Missionary cause by the publication of this volume, the Author will abundantly rejoice.
Another reason which induced him thus to appear before the public, was, that in the course of his residence in India he met with several striking illustrations of the sacred Scriptures, which he did not remember to have seen noticed in the works of others. Some of these have appeared in the New Baptist Miscellany; but the whole are embodied in these Recollections.
