Excerpt from The Life of the Rev. John Macdonald, A. M: Late Missionary Minister From the Free Church of Scotland at Calcutta; Including Selections From His Diary and Letters To these antagonistic elements with which the truth has to conflict in India, as elsewhere, we must add the hostility of Popery as the ally of Hinduism in perpetuating idolatry. It is an instructive fact to know, that so baneful is the influence of Romanism in Bengal, that no fewer than three missionaries of our Church, in Cal cutta alone, have had to assail it through the press. Dr Duff, by his noble and character istic pamphlet against the Jesuits, Rev. W. S. Mackay, by his torso and classical publication on the same subject, and Rev. John Mac donald, in a pamphlet to be afterwards men tioned, have all been induced to challenge Popery, and oppose its progress in India; for it seeks to accomplish there what it has all but achieved in Tahiti, and will never cease to pro mote until the system be utterly uprooted.
