Medhurst and Mr. Stevens made a voyage of exploration to the borders of Shantung. Cradle and sepulcher of their greatest sage, that province is a Holy Land to the Chinese. What wonder they brought back the tracts distributed, saying, We have examined your books, and neither approve nor desire them. We have the instructions of our sage- they are sufficient for us!

The wonder is that the experience of later missionaries has been so entirely different. How would those explorers have rejoiced had they seen in vision Nevius and his colleagues planting churches through the length and breadth of the peninsula!Imbued with the spirit of an apostle, and burning to preach the gospel in the regions beyond, Dr. Nevius was a pioneer in more than one field. In Shantung, the principal scene of his life-work, he was preceded by missionaries of other churches- but at Hang-chow, which has become a mission center of vast importance, he was the first to find a footing - unless, indeed, Bishop Burdon may contest the honour.

The war which drove him from that station opened for him the gates of the North.
