THE TIMES, WEDNES

RAJAH BROL

?KE ON MISSIONS.doking to India alone, we have more especially religions, to contend with on which we have never get made any impression whatever; and that is the truth. With the Mabomedan you have made no progress; with the Hindoo you have made no progress at all, you are just where you were the very first day that you went to India. And T say again that the object will be effected, but you must wait God's own time to effect it. It is not by any sudden flood of zeal that you will do it now, more than zealous men have done it before ; but by patience, and wisdom, and the gentle teaching of that love which our religion inculcates, that we must, and may, and will in time lead to the conversion of India. (Hear, hear.) More than this I will not venture to say, upon the subject ; but you are all aware how immediately I am myself connected with the island of Borneo and with the mission that has been planted there. (Great applause.) And I must-state it as an experience that where you meet the uninstructed somi-savage, with a loose superstition influencing his mind completely, you have a far greater chance of success than when you address yourself and your exertions to those with established religions, which, though false, have a firm and an absolute hold upon the minds of believers. (Hear, bear.). I myself first proposed the missions to Borneo. (Applause.)
