To my father and mother were born eight children, who lived to become heads of large and promising families; two died in infancy, and one was stricken down with pernicious malarial fever in his 12th year, James Le Grand. The brief record in my Bible, written by his father's hand, tells me this of my brother, for whom I was named: "He died, giving bright evidence of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ." This is enough! Can more be said of anyone?

This is the boy's history! I hope the same may be said of every one who reads his history. I trust as much may be said of him who bears his name.
