"By Charles F. Harford-Battersby, M.A., M.D. (Principal of Livingstone College), Author of 'Daily', 'Do you pray ?' &c."
"With an introductory chapter by Rev. J.H. Skrine, M.A., (Warden of Trinity College, Glenalmond)".
"This book is an attempt to record the life story of one who, whether as a boy at school, as a Master, or as a Missionary, 'tried to do his duty'. .... It is hoped that this memoir may form a fitting sequel to the biography of Mackay of Uganda, which tells the story of Uganda work during the earlier days of the Mission, up to the time when Pilkington was appointed to Uganda. With this in view, a title has been adopted which may serve to connect the two volumes. There is not attempt here to give a history of the Mission, except in so far as it refers to the life and work of Pilkington of Uganda". -- Preface, p. [ix].
