Excerpt from The Life of John Livingston Nevius: For Forty Years a Missionary in China
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 honor. The war which drove him from that station Opened for him the gates of the North.
