Excerpt from A Memoir of Richard Williams, Surgeon: Catechist to the Patagonian Missionary Society in Tierra Del Fuego Had the engagements of the Rev. William Arthur allowed him to undertake the compila tion of the following Memoir, the public would have received from his hand a missionary biography as instructive, if t as exciting, as The Successful Merchant.
