    Excerpt from Jamaica and Friends' Missions

    Jamaica is the largest of the British West India Islands, and as such has a warm place in the hearts of English Christians, as well as in the hearts Of Americans. It is a mission field of exceptional interest to the Free Churches on both sides Of the Atlantic. Besides the black and the colored population, and a sprinkling of Chi nese, there are about East Indians. Having myself traveled through India with its people, I am in keen sympathy with these East Indians as colonists, whether in Africa or in the West Indies. They are an industrious, lovable, gentle people, saturated with relig ious thought, and, when converted to Christ, ready like the wise men of the East to lay their treasures at His feet. There are in Jamaica 024 Government Schools with an enrolment of 59 children. A large quantity Of the land is happily in small holdings, no less than plots not exceeding five acres. There are deposits in the Government Savings Banks, proving some prosper ity and thrift among the laboring classes.

    Amid such a population there is an open door for an aggressive and evangelical church like the Society Of Friends. For a long series of years our Society has ex tended missionary efforts to Iamaica, and the important missionary stations on the Island, the history of which will be told in the following pages, is the legitimate apos tolic succession of these earlier laborers.
