الصفحة 20 - ... that you had imitated that Saviour who went about doing good ; that you had solaced the aching bosom of parental love ; that you had introduced a fellow-being to those enjoyments of society in which you so richly participate; to the charms of books which had cheered so many of your hours of solitude ; and to the contemplation of those sublime and affecting truths of religion, which you profess to make the foundation of your dearest hopes, — will not this be a more grateful theme of remembrance,...
الصفحة 13 - African sun, or whciher it is found near at home, sadly contrasted with the gospel verdure which surrounds it. " Paul was constrained to preach to those among whom Christ had not been named. Oh ! aid us, then, while we long to make the same name precious to the deaf and dumb.
الصفحة 10 - Christ to convey the glad news of salvation to every creature under heaven ; then we fail to obey this injunction, if we neglect to make His name known to the poor deaf and dumb. I have said that they are heathen. Truly they are so as it regards their knowledge of religious truth.
