Excerpt from Life and Letters of David Coit Scudder: Missionary in Southern India
I have tried in this volume to record the life of an elder brother, who was a missionary in India of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Mis sions, and died at the beginning of his twenty-eighth year. My thanks are due to the various persons who have assisted me in this work by allowing me to exam ine and use the letters which they had received from my brother, and by furnishing me with recollections of their intercourse with him. Especially I would acknowledge the service rendered by Mr. Capron and Mr. Washburn, members of the Madura Mission.
It should be stated that the chapter on Cromlechs was compiled from material which had also been used in the preparation of a paper upon the subject, read before the Boston Society of Natural History by my brother, S. H. Scudder. And inserted in the published Proceedings of the Society.
