TO MY DEAR FATHER,
THE REVEREND ALEX. MACKAY, LLD,

WHOSE PAINSTAKING INTEREST

IN THE

TRAINING AND EARLY EDUCATION OF HIS CHILDREN

LAID THE FOUNDATION OF

THE NOBLE SELF-SACRIFICING LITE

OF THE SUBJECT

OF THIS

MEMOIR

" It is no sacrifice, as some think, to come here as pioneers of Christianity and of civilization. I would not give my position here for all the world A powerful race has to be won from darkness to light; superstition and idolatry have to be overthrown; men have to be taught to love God and love their neighbour, which means the uprooting of institutions that have lasted for centuries ; labour made noble, the slave set free, knowledge imparted, and wisdom implanted; and, above all, that true wisdom taught which alone can elevate man from a brute to a son of God. Who would not willingly engage in such noble work, and consider it the highest honour on earth to be called to do it?"

MACKAY, Uganda, Nov. 19th, 1878
