Scots in India
Self Lost in Service - Alexander Duff of India by Alexander Duff Watson (1926)

Alexander Duff at 30
Alexander Duff at 30


IN the preparation of this work the author, about three months before his death, condensed and thoroughly revised the large amount of material he had originally had available. His intention was not to enter in any way into competition with the elaborate biographies of Dr Duff belonging to an earlier period, but to supply a crisp and vivid life-sketch having a wide general appeal. For this task he was specially equipped owing to the frequent intercourse he had enjoyed with his grandfather both at home and when travelling, and also because of his own life-long deep interest in and knowledge of Mission enterprise.

Of help received in completing the work since the death of Mr Duff Watson grateful acknowledgment is hereby made to Mr Alexander MacKilligan, Aberdeen.

September 1926.
