DEDICATED, WITH PERMISSION, TO
THE RIGHT HON. THE EARL OF SHAFTESBURY,

PRESIDENT OF THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.

LONDON:
PARTRIDGE & OAKEY, 34, PATERNOSTER ROW;

AND 70, EDGWARE ROAD.

1853.

PARTRIDGE AND OAKEY, PRINTERS, PADDINGTOX.

TO THE

RIGHT HON. EARL OF SHAFTESBURY,

PRESIDENT OF THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.

MY LORD,

In dedicating this volume to your Lordship, I cannot

omit to acknowledge the kind manner in which that honour

was granted. The chief merit of the work consists in its

record of the wonderful and successful operations of the great

Institution over which your Lordship has been called to preside,

and of the extraordinary endowments and virtues of the

excellent men who have been its principal labourers.

Having been for more than forty years connected

with the Bible Society, privileged with an acquaintance with

many of its agents, and to co-operate, on some occasions, in

parts of its agencies, I have felt delighted in bringing together

the memorials of those“who being dead yet speak,”—and trust that this volume will be approved by your Lordship, and contribute, under the blessing of God, to promote the cause of the British and Foreign Bible Society.

With prayers that your Lordship may be preserved

long to labour for the Bible Society, and to witness its in

creasing triumphs, in advancing the kingdom of our Lord and

Saviour,

I have the honour to remain,

My Lord,

With sentiments of the highest esteem,

Your Lordship’s obedient servant,

THOMAS TIMPSON.
