The subject of the following memorials has already had his earnest prayers for more labourers in the Chinese field richly answered. Even at this moment the heart is cheered by fresh tidings of the work of God's grace in Pekin by His servants Messrs. Stanley Smith, Cassels, and Hoste. And it is in the earnest, prayerful hope that this book may be used to stir up others that it has been written. As far as possible my brother has been allowed to speak for himself, and his letters and papers have therefore been given without any attempt to work them up into a regular biography. After the book was compiled, I came across two papers of interest. The one was written for his wife, who had the greatest difficulty to induce him to give it to her, and contains a list of his scholarships, amounting to nearly £1,500.
