The History of the Melanesian Mission free pdf Excerpt from The History of the Melanesian Mission The following history was undertaken at the request of the families of the three first Bishops who stand out in its pages, and whose personality I have striven, however imperfectly, to set forth, feeling strongly that, here if anywhere, personal character and influence have been the corner-stone of the edifice. Mission Reports, biographies, diaries, letters, have all been fully consulted and freely used, and, in connection with the first Bishop, the notices which appeared at the time of his death from his old friends Bishop Hobhouse, Mr. Gladstone, and others. Further, for this work I have had the inestimable advantage of personal acquaintance with the four Bishops in succession- of having spent ten years in New Zealand, the home of the work during its first early days, before and after Bishop Patteson sconsecration- and, later on, of having been in constant communication with Bishop John Selwyn during the period when, under him, the Mission rapidly expanded into the broad and general development which now characterizes it, giving to Melanesia something of the position which should belong to it. For it is well to remember that the field of the Mission extends over "nearly a twelfth part of the circumference of the globe. It reaches over from thirty to thirty-six degrees of latitude, and it includes a hundred islands, some larger, some smaller. Almost every one of these islands has a separate language, or at least a separate dialect of its own," and some of them possess several such, highly developed, and differing at least as much as, for example, the languages of France and Spain.
