Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...contributed no less than 90,000 to the cause of missions. William Carey had died quite a poor man, and had said of himself, "I think when I am dead the sooner I am forgotten the better;" but even though no inscription had ever been cut in stone at Serampore, and no marble bust erected in the hall of the Agricultural Society in Calcutta, Carey's honoured name must go down to all the generations bright with the lustre of his great learning, his unceasing labours, and his Christ-like love for the souls of men. But while we look back with grateful reverence to the work he accomplished, let us remember that it rests with us to carry forward that work by our interest, our money, and our prayers; that while his labours are ended, others are entering into those labours, and need their hands to be upheld and their hearts cheered; and that also, while we may still think much and speak much of Dr. Carey, we must, above all things, speak to the hearts of others, and send to the ends of the earth the message, of Dr. Carey's Saviour.
