The Twenty-Seventh Annual Report of the American Madura Mission, 1861
Excerpt from The Twenty-Seventh Annual Report of the American Madura Mission, 1861 In reviewing the past year, we are called upon to praise God for the health given us in the carrying forward of our missionary work. Although the messenger of death has entered our dwell ings, removing two infant children, yet no adult member of our mission has been called away, nor has there been experience of severe and protracted illness. Up to the year 1847, when this mission had existed thirteen years, and there had been connected with it twenty-two missionaries with their wives, there had been removals by death of four male and seven female members. There have been now, in all, thirty-one missionaries with their wives associated with the mission, and it is a remarkable fact, de manding gratitude to God, that for nearly fourteen years there has been no death of an adult member. During the year, we have had the pleasure of welcoming the return, with renewed strength, of Mr. And Mrs. Webb, after three years' absence, and the happiness of being reinforced by the arrival of Mr. And Mrs. Scudder. Mr. Webb-reached his station, Dindigul, July 23d, and Mr. Scudder arrived at Madura, August loth, where he is at present, engaged in the study of the language. The following table indicates the location of the members of the mission, the provision made for vacant stations, and the changes which have occurred during the year.
