Excerpt from William S. Ament: An Ideal Missionary When Mr. William T. Ellis, the newspaper correspondent, who was sent out by the Phil adelphia Press, to investigate missions, arrived 'in Peking, he called first of all upon the Ameri can Ambassador, Mr. Rockhill, so as to get an outside opinion, before looking into the work of the various boards. Without revealing his purpose he asked in a casual manner How about these missionaries, are they any good? Mr. Rockhill replied, Go and see Dr. Ament and his work. If after visiting him you don't become enthusiastic over missions I shall be surprised. This number of the Envelope Se ries is written so that our readers may Go and see Dr. Ament and his work. Now that this wonderfully effective worker has left us we should be able to appreciate his character and work even better than when he was in the midst of his tasks. Mr. Cromer certainly has done his part to make this possible. Later on a book about Dr. Ament will be written by his friend and colleague, Dr. Henry D. Porter. It is a book that will be looked for eagerly and should find a wide circle of readers. This sketch may serve as an introduction to the larger work. We have made an exceedingly advantageous arrangement with Prof. Henry Kalloch Rowe, of N ewton Theological Seminary, to write four articles for the Envelope Series, in 1909-10. This will be in the nature of a centennial series, of rare interest and value. The first one will be issued in our October number under the title Around the World One Hundred Years Ago. We want a host of new subscribers for these four numbers and of course expect to hold on to all our old subscribers. Only ten cents, friends.
