‘[p. 15] world is my parish,’ but John Wesley never dreamed that after one hundred and fifty years in far-away China, young Chinese Christians would place their hands on the identical Book he once used and receive ordination to the Christian ministry, when a bishop of the church he founded holding it out to them, says, ‘Take thou authority to preach the Scriptures.’ It has been the writer's privilege to meet at various times and places the good man who labored in Medford so long ago. We have no doubt he did his duty here as a citizen or resident during those two years, and sincerely hope he rounds out his century, a grand old man. For the facts we have related we are indebted to the author of ‘Story of John Wesley's Bible,’ and for our illustration to courtesy of Zion's Herald, in which both story and illustrations appeared.
