Excerpt from Speeches on Missions

A preface to such a book as this can scarcely be too brief.

By his zeal and eloquence Bishop Wilberforce did more than any man of modern times to promote the Mission Work of the English Church, and by his death the cause of Missions sustained an almost irreparable loss. His energising spirit and loving persuasiveness, which led men to consecrate their lives to Mission work, was no longer felt: and his voice, which pleaded for Missions as none other could plead, was no longer heard.

To my own great gain I had heard some of his Mission Speeches, and read others. I felt sure that the reports of many such speeches had been preserved, and it occurred to me that if they could be collected into a volume, the loss which the cause of Missions had sustained by his death might in some measure be repaired. He, being dead, would by them yet continue to speak to us of that which had been so dear to his heart.

To my appeal for the loan of such reports, many friends, to whom I take this opportunity of returning my best thanks, responded, and the result is the present collection.
