from the Prefatory Note: "This book has been written at the request of the Central Board of Missions, and, as I understand, is to be one of a series of small and popular books on Missions Overseas. The subject, which was given to me, is perhaps not quite clearly indicated in the title. It is not the Beginning of Anglican Missions in India as one great enterprise. It is the Beginnings of different sections or departments of that enterprise; and some of these beginnings were much later than the general Beginning. A glance, however, at the Table of Contents will make all clear.
My instructions were to tell of Anglican Missions, and the book is in the main confined to them. But Xavier, Carey, Duff, and other distinguished missionaries not of our communion, find incidental mention. I should gladly have told of the work of other Missions if the scope of the book, and its limited size, had permitted."
