Excerpt from Scenes and Services in South Africa: The Story of Robert Moffat's Half-Century of Missionary Labours British Colonies, or in heathen lands, John Brown lee and Robert Mofi'at appear to be the only sur vivors. Thomas James, William Ellis, John Burnet, James Stratten, and William Urwick are gone and with them, Charles Barff and George Platt, of the South Seas, and, as need hardly be added, John Williams, the glorious Martyr Of Erromanga. Only a year before, John Morison, the subsequent biographer Of The Fathers and Founders Of the London Missionary Society, was set apart to the order which he long adorned, by the joint hands Of venerable men belonging to his own denomination, and to the principal churches Of his native country; but we have no hint, at that early day, Of' the future distinction Of his now eminent brother Scotchman, who simply informs us, in the preface to his principal publication, that John Williams and he were accepted by the Directors at the same time, and designated to the work Of God, at Surrey Chapel, on the same occasion.
