Writing and Editing Career

The missionary, Dr Helen Rowlands of Sylhet said of him "The map of the world (and not only India) was continuously before his eyes at all times". Yet he never visited India but wrote two volumes on the romance of the mission work. The Welsh volume is called Hanes Cenhadaeth Dramor y Methodistiaid Calfinaidd Cymreig published at Caernarfon in 1907.

He edited two magazines which have been discontinued. He edited Cenhadwr (Missionary) from its inception in 1922 till his retirement in 1949, and it retained its high standard throughout the years giving the readers an idea of the activities of missionaries in the Khasi Hills, Lushai Hills and those who laboured on the plains of Sylhet. He also edited the sister magazine for the English speaking Welsh Presbyterians. The title of this magazine was Glad Tidings.

John Hughes Morris also wrote: The Story of our Foreign Mission (Presbyterian Church of Wales), Liverpool 1930, Hugh Evans & Sons Ltd. His book may be considered the definitive source on the Welsh Calvinistic Missions to:

  • The Serampore Mission
  • The Khasi Hills 1842 - 1930
  • The Plains of Sylhet and Cachar
  • The Lushai Hills
  • The Breton Mission

In addition to these detailed accounts of the 5 mission fields listed above there is a half page entry in his book relating to the Mission to the Jews that inaugurated in 1846 when the Rev. John Mills of Llandidloes was appointed to work among the Jews in London. The first Jewish convert was a man named Henry Wolf and baptised in 1851 at Rose Place Chapel, Liverpool. Rev. Mills' work ended in 1859 but there ensued later, a number of conversions in London and from other places, to the Christian faith. (ref. John Morris Hughes chp. IX, p. 100).

Famous quotes containing the words career, writing and/or editing:

    They want to play at being mothers. So let them. Expressing tenderness in their own way will not prevent girls from enjoying a successful career in the future; indeed, the ability to nurture is as valuable a skill in the workplace as the ability to lead.
    Anne Roiphe (20th century)

    I can hardly bring myself to caution you against drinking, because I am persuaded that I am writing to a rational creature, a gentleman, and not to a swine. However, that you may not be insensibly drawn into that beastly custom of even sober drinking and sipping, as the sots call it, I advise you to be of no club whatsoever.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    In this century the writer has carried on a conversation with madness. We might almost say of the twentieth-century writer that he aspires to madness. Some have made it, of course, and they hold special places in our regard. To a writer, madness is a final distillation of self, a final editing down. It’s the drowning out of false voices.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
