Excerpt from D. M. Thornton: A Study in Missionary Ideals and Methods

"Thornton was the first man I ever met who devoted his intellectual powers to thinking out the wider problems of the evangelisation of the world and the spread of Christian institutions in mission lands. Although since then I have met others who were occupied with the same questions, I have never known any one who approached them with more whole-hearted devotion, a keener zeal for knowledge, a closer mastery of detail, or a more farsighted and elevating faith." - [Extract from a Memorial Sketch, by a Cambridge friend.]

The above words, by a friend of D. M. Thornton's, and a man already highly distinguished in the field of scientific research, express very justly the reasons which dictated the writing of this Memoir. It is not that Thornton was the writers dear friend and intimate colleague and leader in work - such a reason would not have been sufficient, had not he been, as he was, representative.
