Memoir and Remains of the Rev. James D. Burns, M.A. of Hampstead (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Memoir and Remains of the Rev. James D. Burns, M.A. Of Hampstead The task seemed to fall naturally to one of his friends who had largely possessed his confidence, and to whom it would have been indeed a labour of love. But the incessant toils of a busy London life, and the heavy strain involved in the conduct of large affairs, made it impossible for him to take the principal part of the work. It was, however, undertaken with characteristic generosity by the beloved and lamented Dr James Hamilton, and his felicitous pen will readily be traced all through the part of this volume comprising the memoir. And we are sure that it will be felt to be doubly precious when it is known that these pages, in which he so lovingly sketched the life of his friend, were the last which he wrote, and were finished dur ing a retirement at Hampstead at the commencement of that illness which, in a few brief months, issued in his own call to the higher service of the sanctuary above.
