PREFACE.

PURPOSING to write a work illustrative of the general labours and successes of the City Mission, the writer submitted a plan of the intended volume to the Secretaries of the Society—the Revs. Messrs. Garwood and Robinson. With the kindness ever received from those highly valued advisers, they carefully examined the prospectus, and expressed a decided opinion that it would be far better to write an account of personal labours, than to attempt any account of the labours of the Missionaries generally, within the limits of a single volume.

Had not that advice been given very strongly, the writer would certainly have declined the publication of a work of so personal a character.
