9781331361343: Memoirs of the Rev. Walter M. Lowrie: Missionary to China (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Memoirs of the Rev. Walter M. Lowrie: Missionary to China

The Editor of this Memoir has done little more than to select and arrange the papers of his beloved son. A few remarks have been made with the view of noticing his early years, and connecting the different periods of his short but active and not unvaried life. The plan adopted was to let him speak for himself in his letters and journals; though some letters from his missionary brethren, and others in the ministry at home, who knew him, have been given at the end of the volume. From these every reader will form his own estimate of his character and acquirements. A few of the many letters from Christian friends, as the sad intelligence of his death reached them, have also been inserted.

His letters for the most part were hastily written, many of them in the confidence of Christian and endeared friendship. His journals also were written at the dates mentioned, and his other engagements gave him no time to correct or copy them.

Two volumes of private journals were found after his death among his papers; but they were destroyed, in accordance with his special written request to his friend Rev. M. S. Culbertson, or either of his surviving colleagues.

The work has been stereotyped, and the entire expense of this edition has been defrayed by Christian friends, to whom his memory is very dear. Whatever profit may arise from the sale will be applied to the enlargement of the Ningpo mission, under the care of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church.
