Excerpt from The Church in Madras: Being the History of the Ecclesiastical and Missionary Action of the East India Company in the Presidency of Madras, in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries This record has been drawn up under certain limitations. It is not intended to be a religious history of the period and the place with which it deals- nor a complete history of missionary effort in the south of India in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is a record of ecclesiastical events as they affected or were affected by the East India Company and its local Government at Fort St. George. The Directors of the Company were men of high standing in the city of London, Christian gentlemen jealous of their honour as merchants of so great a city, and careful of their 'merchantly carriage.' Their actions both at home and abroad accorded with their high character. This record, which consists principally of extracts from their despatches to the Government of Fort St. George and extracts from the letters in reply, is intended to exhibit the Directors and their ecclesiastical actions exactly as they were. The writer hopes also that the record will serve to remind the present generation how much Missionaries in the south of India are indebted to the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge and the German agents they employed for the pioneer work they did in the 18th century. The German agents were well educated men, mostly graduates of Halle- they compiled Tamil grammars and dictionaries- they made translations of all the books and tracts that were necessary for their purposes into Tamil, Portuguese and Persian.

    Pretty interesting marketing ploy for a youngster. It's a thin line to walk, when deciding whether to give it away or sell it. Like him, I think offering a free coloring book for kids is a better route to follow. Check it out if they wish!
