"To the Reverend Norman
"25th Nov., 1867.
"Reverend and Dear Sir,
"We, the Captain, Officers, and Passengers on board the steamship Rangoon,
cannot bid you adieu without expressing our grateful sense of the peculiar
privilege we have enjoyed in your society and your ministrations.
"As being all of us
connected with India, we cannot but feel and believe that the visit to
that country of one who exercises so great and beneficial an influence on
public opinion at home must be productive of the greatest benefit.
"We all most sincerely
unite in wishing you and your colleague Dr. Watson a prosperous journey,
and a safe and happy return to your country and families.
' We beg to remain,
"Reverend and dear Sir,
"Yours gratefully and affectionately, (Signed),

"Certified that we have
carefully examined into the state of health of the Rev. Norman Macleod,
D.D., and we are unanimously of opinion, that it would be attended with
danger to his life, should he persist in his intention of continuing his
tour to Sealkote.
"We consider that he ought
to leave India at the latest on the 3rd March, and still then, we believe
that he may with safety visit any stations which can be reached by rail.
