My three Biographies of Carey of Serampore, Duff of Calcutta, and Wilson of Bombay, cover a period of nearly a century and a quarter, from 1761 to 1878.

My three Biographies of Carey of Serampore, Duff of Calcutta, and Wilson of Bombay, cover a period of nearly a century and a quarter, from 1761 to 1878. They have been written as contributions to that history of the Church of India which one of its native sons must some day attempt; but also to the annals of the Evangelical Revival, which may well be called the Second Reformation; and to the history of English-speaking peoples, whom the Foreign Missions begun by Carey have made the rulers and civilisers of the non-christian world. The Life of the Rev. Krishna Mohun Banerjea, D.L., Dr. Duff's second convert, and from his baptism in 1832 to his death in 1885 the leader of the Native Christians of India, is being prepared by one of his grandsons. To complete the story so far as India is concerned, we still desiderate such a record of progress in South India from Ziegenbalg and Schwartz to Anderson and Miller as Bishop Caldwell could give us; and a biography of Charles Grant, for which, I believe, there are abundant materials.
