Excerpt from Remarks on Missionary Enterprise, Especially in China
The following Remarks took their rise in 'a survey of the Christian Missions of the present century.
The writer has, in common with many, that feeling of admitted shortcoming - almost failure - that results from' such a review but he is equally impressed with the belief that all this is remediable.
These Remarks are so-called properly. They profess to be neither formal, exhaustive, nor even original, much less exclusive of what might seem, casually viewed, to be incompatible with them. Further they are almost a mere republication of what could appear in the columns of a newspaper, there being insufficient leisure to give them in their entirety they' therefore Want the proportion and kind of treatment to be looked for in a regular treatise.
A fairly extensive substratum of experience and ao quaintance with missions is supposed in the reader. Nothing here is intended for those who are without experience nor for those who fear or decline to accept its lessons.
