of James Stewart
D.D. M.D. Hon. F.R.G.S. by
James Wells, D.D. (1909)
THIS book might have been fitly
entitled The Life and Times of Dr. Stewart, for it records his
influential share in the enterprises which have made a new world of South
and Central Africa.
Several of the Chapters are occupied
with the great causes which Dr. Stewart espoused; and they present his
chief convictions in the form that seemed most likely to interest the many
circles of young people in Great Britain and America who are now studying
My heartiest thanks are due to many
helpers, foremost among whom are Mrs. Stewart and John Stephen, Esq. I
wish I could thank them all, one by one.
I have drawn freely on the admirable
In Memoriam number of the Christian Express, which was
edited, and to a large extent written, by Dr. Roberts of Lovedale.
Sloan, M.A., and Sir. A. R. Simpson, M.D., have revised the proofs and
made many helpful suggestions.
