Excerpt from Recollections of Northern India: With Observations on the Origin, Customs, and Moral Sentiments of the Hindoos, and Remarks on the Country and Principal Places on the Ganges, &C

After so many have written about India, some apology may be expected from the Author for intruding the following volume on the world. The only apology which he can present is, that he did not think the subject by any means exhausted, and that he hoped still to be able to convey some information respecting India and its people, to the minds of the supporters of missions in particular, not generally possessed by them; and which might be the means of exciting a greater interest on its behalf, and of thus stirring up to greater efforts for its evangelization.

Many years ago, when the Author was about to proceed to India, a learned friend suggested to him, that something on the subject of the extent of moral knowledge possessed by the heathen of that country would be useful, as tending to throw some light on the difficult question of their moral accountableness. This subject was not lost sight of during his period of missionary labour at Benares - a locality which, more than any other in India, was suitable for ascertaining the real sentiments, especially, of the Hindoos; as the more learned Brahmans of that celebrated city, with whom he had necessarily much intercourse, are regarded as the highest authorities on all subjects connected with Hinduism. His more direct work, as a missionary, however, prevented him from having leisure to write anything on the subject, till he was obliged to return home, in consequence of ill health.
