The sky was black with clouds as they went on board the Elcano, a new vessel laden with ice, bound for Calcutta. All next day the clouds grew darker, the wind blew a gale, and the vessel rolled and pitched in a most alarming fashion. On the second night, as Captain Pritchard was going through the main cabin, "he remarked to the passengers, A terrible night ; an awful storm." They never heard him speak again. All through the night the vessel tossed like a leaf on the waves, and the missionary and his party were too prostrate to leave their berths. the grey dawnJust as broke, a tremendous sea thestruck the vessel, and next instant Mrs. Pritcliard's "heart-rending cry, My husband's overboard," was heard above the howling of the wind. Dr. Phillips sprang from his berth, but was too ill to do more than crawl back again. Before a boat could be lowered, they were miles away, flying before one of the fiercest hurricanes that had ever swept the eastern shores of America.

57 AND 59 LUDGATE HiLL, E.G.FOREWORD.
OHOETLY after the death of the late Dr. Phillips,
his widow commenced the preparation of a bio-
graphy, and completed a first draft of that portion
which dealt with the career of Dr. Phillips previous
to his connection with the Sunday School Union.
The first twelve chapters of the present book consist
of the work of Mrs. Phillips, considerably revised,
enlarged, and in part rewritten. For the remaining
four chapters the Editor is alone responsible. He
takes this opportunity of expressing his great indebted-
ness theto Eev. William Carey, who very kindly
examined and arranged the vast mass of correspond-
ence and other material used in the preparation of the
present biography.
May, 1898.
