On offer is an interesting manuscript letter and relic of Christian outreach dated Bishop's Lodge, Nagasaki [Japan], October 19, 1898 to Bishop Bardsley handwritten by Henry Evington, Bishop of Kiushu. He is writing to say that he is happy that Bishop Bardsley's health has returned. "I was grieved to see that you were so much worse after reaching Egypt. From all account it would seem as if Africa were going to swallow up the new missionaries and there seems to be a great scarcity of offers for service both at home and abroad." He writes that his wife is still at home "arranging for the boys Education" but hopes to arrive by Christmas with her mother. Measures approx. 5" x 8" when folded. BIO NOTES: One online source provides: Henry Evington was the Bishop of Kiushu, was at Eton in 1870 and rowed for them. He arrived in Japan in 1874 and served an Anglican priest in Kobe for the English community before becoming a missionary (Christian Missionary Society - C. M. S.). He was consecrated in March of 1894 as Bishop of Kiushu. A reference was found that both of his wife's parents went to Japan, died there and were buried in Nagasaki. The Rt Rev John Wareing Bardsley, DD, MA (1835 - 1914) became the Bishop of Sodor and Man in 1887. In 1891 he was translated to Carlisle where he remained until his death. Overall VG.
