Excerpt from Memoir of the Rev. Wm; C. Burns, M.A: Missionary to China From the English Presbyterian Church
The materials from which the narrative has been drawn are - Ist, My own personal recollections and those of other intimate friends; 2d, Private letters addressed chieﬂy to members of his own family; and 3d, Copious journals, extending over the whole period of his home ministry, and continued, though in a briefer and more fragmentary manner, during the early years of his. Residence in China. From these last I have quoted very largely, but not more so I believe than those who are really interested in his work would wish me to have done. Indeed, the difficulty often was merely to extract from a document, which many readers doubtless would have wished to possess entire.
