SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF ROBERT MORRISON, D.D., The first Protestant missionary to CHINA, Where after a service of twenty-seven years, cheerfully spent in extending the kingdom of the blessed REDEEMER, during which period he compiled and published A DICTIONARY OF THE CHINESE LANGUAGE, founded the Anglo-Chinese College at Malacca, and for several years laboured alone on a Chinese version of THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, which he was spared to see completed and widely circulated among those for whom it was destined, he sweetly slept in Jesus. He was born at Morpeth in Northumberland January 5th, 1782, Was sent to China by the London Mission Society in 1807, Was for twenty-five years Chinese translator in the employ of The East-India Company, and died at Canton August 1st, 1834.--Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth. Yea saith the Spirit that they may rest from their labours and their works do follow them.
