I had no desire, nor was any desire expressed by others that I should paint in words the picture of animmaculate saint, or set forth a being of supernal powers. Neither have I the taste or the ability to enter into the minutiae of ecclesiastical politics. Let others write of these, or do justice to his work as a churchman. I have told in outline the story of one of the nursing fathers of a nation, even of Christian Japan. I have striven to portray a faithful brother-man and a child of God, one whose tender love to his Father was shown in a life hid with Christ and a constant ministry of service to his fellow-men, I have wrought not for those who knew Verbeck, but for those who knew him not. I knew Verbeck of Japan during four years of intimacy in the Mikados empire. Thrice visiting his birthplace, Zeist in Holland, I learned many facts about his early life and his unconscious preparation for wonderful work in the Far East XL Preface I have had access to the file of his lettets, from 1860 to 1898, written home to the secretanes ot the Boaid of Missions of the Reformed Church in America, and to many of those sent to his own relatives, as well as to his own diaues, note books, and to other documents lent me by his daughter. Nevertheless, Verbeck was mightier in work than in word, and left relatively com paiatively little writing of a peisonal nature. To all who have in any way aided me, I return sin cere and hearty thanks. The bulk of the book treats of what led gave Guide Verbeck to do, as quietly and as unseen as if he were leaven hid, Verbecks work belongs less to the phenomenal than to the potent. It was just when men were asking do missions in Japan pay and even when good people tn the Reformed Church almost weary in welldo ing, were hinting at abandonment of their japan Mission, thatGod by means of true servants wrought His most wonderful work of educating the Japanese for their new life. Vigorously suppressing my own opinions and views of things ecclesiastical I have let Dr. Ver beck tell his own story, and, also, show his own powers and limitations. With other things and persons, Japanese and foreign I have been more free in comment and criticism In the Introduc tion, I have sketched briefly Verbeck as s man of action, rather than of words.
