A Great Indian Pioneer
WM. CAREY, the cobbler who became the Mighty
Pioneer in India Missions. In reply to a question
by Dr. RYLAND, Carey said: "I married my master's
sister-in-law, Dorothy Placket, two years ago. Yes, it
was on the 10th of June, 1781. The same year I joined
a little church which was then formed at Hackleton. My
fellow apprentice had many times conversed with me upon
the subject of religion; and by God's grace I had come to
see myself a sinner, and as such had come for pardon to
Jesus Christ. I cannot tell of great raptures, or dreadful
terrors,"continued Carey. "I have never experienced
agonies of remorse; but I found myself a sinner, and I was
enabled to trust in Jesus for salvation."
"I pay little heed to excited emotions, Carey," an-
swered Ryland. "I don't ask how much you feel, or how
little. I say, do you own yourself as a helpless sinner?
Do you resolve, by God's help, to abandon sin? Do you
accept Jesus as your present, all-sufficient Saviour? Will
you resign yourself into His hands?" "To all these ques-
tions I can humbly answer, Yes," continued Carey.
