Excerpt from Memoir of the Rev. Samuel Dyer: Sixteen Years Missionary to the Chinese

A Late authority has pronounced an unfavourable opinion of many modern compositions of the class to which the present volume belongs, in the following expressive language: "I own to you that I prefer the old custom of prefixing a modest preface by way of Memoir, to the modern practice of writing huge narratives of lives in which there are no events; which seems to me a tasteless parade, and a sure way of transmitting nothing to posterity."
