The Awakening of China

Said the High Commissioner Tuan Fang, in an address to the Mission Boards at New York, February 2, 1906:

“We take pleasure this evening in bearing testimony to the part taken by American missionaries in promoting the progress of the Chinese people.

“They have borne the light of Western civilisation into every nook and corner of the Empire. They have rendered inestimable service to China by the laborious task of translating into the Chinese language religious and scientific works of the West. They help us to bring happiness and comfort to the poor and the suffering by the establishment of hospitals and schools.

“The awakening of China which now seems to be at hand may be traced in no small measure to the hand of the missionary. For this service you will find China not ungrateful."
