The American Missionary, Vol. 37 : January, 1883 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The American Missionary, Vol. 37: January, 1883 There is no more lofty tower of observation than that builded on the foundations of righteousness. From this eminence, the missionary has cast its eye to the end of the earth and recorded the progress and change in events that have brought about this glad day. The horrors of the slave trade, now happily passing away, have been unceasingly exposed and deplored. American slavery, so recently abolished, has been opposed with righteous and relentless warfare, and the elevation of the Freedman has been urged by every patriotic and Christian consideration: The rights of the Indians, now so generally recognized, have always been advocated and the Heaven-given opportunity to evangelize the persecuted Chinaman on the Pacific coast, has been set forth without stint or abatement, while all along the line of the work which this period ical represents, the yoke of prejudice has been lifted from the necks of millions, and the curse threatened by national injustice, beaten back that it blast not the life of our free institutions.
