402 LIFE OF BISHOP FRENCH

The sad news came to England upon May 19; both
Colonel Mockler and Mr. Mackirdy wrote full accounts by
the mail, but Colonel Mockler also telegraphed to Mr. Mait-
land and asked him to communicate the tidings home.
It was fitting that the moumftd task should fall to one
whose grandfather* had given a special blessing to the
bishop when he first set forth as a young man upon his
missionary labours ; and who himself had been the last in
intimate companionship to share his missionary labours;
one who for months, (as he said) in this time of their
bereavement remembered by name both Mrs. French and
those of her children who were personally known to him
twice daily in his morning and his midday prayers; and
who, after collecting all the details of the latest hours,
so soon was to be called to follow him to the sweet rest
of Paradise.

To all who took an interest in missionary efforts the
bishop's death came as a shock indeed, but scarce as a sur-
prise, for many feared that he had entered on a task
beyond his strength and years. Very abundant were the
marks of sympathy : from natives and from Europeans, from
missionaries and from chaplains, from soldiers and civilians,
from missionary bishops in far distant lands, from colleagues
in his English ministries and members of his English con-
gregations, from invalids who, while debarred from active
work, had constantly sustained him by their prayers, there
came almost innumerable tokens of regard for him : each
noting some fresh point for comfort or for praise and
thankftdness, or saintly memory, and all alike breathing
the common consciousness that one of rare devotion and
rich gifts had gone to his reward. ' His very name,' said
one, *was a Sursum Corda.' *He was not, for God took
him,' said another. *You know the Jewish legend, that
Moses died of the kisses of God, and what else would
a sunsti'oke be to one so loving and beloved, so meet for
translation ? When we think what lingering illness would

have been to him, or any decay of that brilliant mind, can
we help bowing our heads and thanking even while the
heart aches and aches, and the tears will have their way?'
' It is so entirely the death he would himself have chosen '
seems to have been the thought of very many. One letter,
representing in some sort the feeling of the whole English
Church of which the writer is the Primate, may be given
here at length. Archbishop Benson wrote : —

MYDEABMBaFBKHCH, I-«"b«th Pal«oe, ^E., Jlf«y ai, 1891.

The diBtressing news reached me through Mr. Murray's
kindness to-day. Distressing indeed to us who loved him,
revered him, went by his advice, saw by his help great visions
of the future, having learnt from him how they were to be attained
and realized ; and to you overwhelming, especially after the bright
letters you had just received.

I feel the public loss is so great, and the thought of the Church
is so strong, that I am only afraid lest I should seem to underrate
the great grief and sympathy which I feel, and all will feel, with
you personally.

But if we look away through the shadows as they environ us,
what peace or reward can be imagined more beautiful and perfect
than this faithful servant's?

Strange that it should come just when he had buckled his
armour on again, like a young man, when by right he should have
been reposing. And how it will go to all hearts that his journey
was crowned at Muscat, close to the last slumber-place of Henry
Martyn \ What a sign I

God seems very near. Once more, in deepest sympathy and

' Yours most truly always,

£. Cantvar.

To note the references in the public press would far
exceed the limits of the present memoir. That missionary
periodicals and religious newspapers should have appre-
ciative notices was not remarkable; but the noble article
upon his death in the Civil and Military Gazette of the
Punjab (May 22, 1891) was an unusual tribute to the depth
of the impression he had made upon the larger world

' Muscat and Tocat are almost at opposite extremitieB of those wide
Moslem lands; there is a moral and dramatic closeness which others
also saw.

of men. After reviewing his career, it ended with these
words : —

'His was indeed a saintly character, utterly self-denying and
unworldly. Single-hearted, devout, and humble, the fire of
enthusiasm for the propagation of the Gospel burned as brightly
in his breast in those last lonely days in Muscat as it did when he
turned his back on Oxford and all it offered, to give himself to
India.

* Doubtless there will be some public memorial of our late
bishop, but he little needs it, for he lives in affectionate remem-
brance in the hearts of all who knew him, and the cathedral
stands a monument of his own making to show what he did for
his see. He was a man who having put his hand to the plough
did not look back. Through an arid and often unthankful soil
nnder the Eastern sun he drove his furrow straight and true to the
last, and death found him, as the years closed i-ound his venerable
head, still stitdning at the labour which he loved.

* The field he sowed was a virgin soil, and the thorns through
which he walked were many. In the fulness of time, if those
who come after him water and prune and labour as he would
have done, we shall see the harvest. To-day we grieve only for
the memory of the man who was a friend to all who knew him
and to thousands who did not, a good Christian, and a faithful
follower of Him whose Gospel he taught.'

In the cathedral at Lahore a brass has been put up with
this inscription : —

In reverent memory of

Thomas Valpy French, D.D.,

Sometime Fellow of University College, Oxford, and Founder of

this Cathedral Church, who from the year 1851, when

he arrived in India, seived the Church of God,

First, with patient labour as a missionary in the North-West

Provinces and in the Punjab,

and then, for ten years, as first bishop of this diocese, 1877-1887.

He died at Muscat in Arabia,

a lonely witness of the Kingdom of Christ, May 14, 1891.

' A minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the
Gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be
acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.' — Rom. xv. 16.

The verse selected was a favourite. The bishop preached
on it before the University of Cambridge, and at St. Bride's
in 1884 before the C. M. S. It seems to sum up very fitly
the spirit of his life.

THE FINAL RESTING-PLACE 405

It remains but to give some notice of his final earthly
resting-place, the little cemetery at Muscat.

The Eev. H. W. Griffith, one of the Punjab StaflF of
Chaplains, visited the spot early in 1894^ and described it
thus in a letter to Mrs. French : —

*0n Sunday, Feb. 4, 1 went with Mr. Harrison, the electrician,
and my little boy (who accompanied me on the trip) to visit the
grave. We went off about 8 o'clock in the ship's ^ gig . . . and
came to a deep bay with high, almost perpendicular, cliffs all
round, and at the entrance a towering rock rising sheer out of the
deep water, like a sentinel towards the sea-front.

* The bay is divided into two coves by a projecting cliff, and each
has a shingly beach running back some fifty or sixty yards to the
base of the cliffs. In the north (the right hand) cove is the ceme-
tery. ... It is a wild barren spot, but not altogether arid ; two
nullahs run down into the cove, and three trees, out of the very
few which I imagine Muscat can boast, were in full leaf, finding
some sustenance in the detritus from the scarp-cliffs which an
occasional shower would bring down. I also found a shrub, of
a kind of broom, with smooth green leaves and pink flowers,
growing near the grave. I picked a handful and placed it on his
grave, and send a few sprigs to you. He sleeps surrounded by
others of our race, chiefly sailors and officers of the Indian Marine
and gunboats of the Royal Navy, which often put in at Muscat,
and a few civilians. There are thirty-six graves in all.'

The words that follow will be cheering to all Christians,
as showing that the bishop's pioneering work was not in
vain. Mr. Griffith continues : —

' It is a quiet peaceful resting-place, and we may say the soldier
sleeps upon the battle-field, where he himself was first to bear the
standard of the cross.

'It has not fallen to the ground but passed to the hand of
another, the Rev. Peter Zwemer, who has made Muscat his home,
and carries on the work of preaching and discussion all the more
readily, because of his life (or shall I say death ?) and example.

'Mr. Zwemer finds little or no opposition, partly through
the sound and real English influence established through our
Residents, and partly, no doubt, because he is not first in the
field, and the people (so Mr. Mackirdy told me) have a very vivid

remembranoe of the bishop, and were much impressed by his age
and venerable appearance (the Easterns always respect grey hairs),
and also by his refinement and courtesy, quickly appi^eciated by
Orientals.

* Mr. Zwemer had breakfiast with me on board at 9 o'clock that
day, and then remained to servica We had an ofi^ertory for the
Bishop French Memorial at St. John's College, Lahore, and where
so fitting a spot? He left us at 11.30, and by 12 we had started
for India.

' Much of Mr. Zwemer's work consists in the sale and distribu-
tion of the Scriptures and passages of Scripture in Ara ic, which
ai-e readily taken. At present he holds the post alone, but one
does indeed feel thankful that — though it is not from England the
succour comes — no long interval of silence has elapsed since his
voice was hushed.

' It all makes one feel so strongly what Bishop Phillips Brooks
said — '* Most of the romance and heroism of Christianity is now to
be found in the Mission Field." '

But the annexed illustration, far more perhaps than any
description, will point the final lesson of the bishop's life. The
exact spot of his grave is marked by the cross discernible
at the extreme right of the line of sepulchres. This wooden
cross was erected, and the grave protected by a cement
covering, through the thoughtftil kindness of Colonel
Mockler, by whom also the photograph was taken — of
which this picture is a reproduction. Commander Dyke,
commander of H. M.S. Sphinx^ himself superintended the
painting of this temporary monument.

The inscription on the cross ran as follows : —

Sacred to the memory of the

Right Reverend Thomas Valpy French, D.D.,

formerly Bishop of Lahore.

Died May 14, 1891.

When Mr. Maitland came to the spot in September,
being grieved that the bishop's grave should have no verse
of Scripture on it, he arranged that two verses should be
painted on the cement covering: on one side, 'He endured
as seeing Him, who is invisible'; and on the other,
'Looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our
Faith.'

At a later date this structure was replaced by a more

permanent tomb of the beautiftd white Jaipur marble,
prepared at that place under the kind supervision of CoL
Jacob, E.E., and shipped from Karachi.

Although the wooden cross was described by Mr. Maitland
as ' dignified and impressive/ the recumbent cross of marble
which has succeeded it, besides not shutting out the graves
behind, will symbolize more fitly the end of suffering, the
lifelong cross laid down. There is a Residency Fund for
the maintenance of the cemetery, and the grave is under
the protection of the British gunboat, so there is little
likelihood that it will ever meet with desecration or
neglect. The inscription now runs as follows. On either
side is placed a verse of Scripture in English, and the
same verses are repeated in Arabic characters at the two
ends of the sepulchre. Around the lower cornice on three
sides are the words : —

To the memory of Thomas Valpy French, D.D.

Entered into rest May 14, 1891.

First Bishop of Lahore, and first Missionary to Muscat.

The verses are, on the one side : —

* Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a com of wheat fall into
the ground and die, it abideth alone, but if it die, it bringeth forth
much fruit ' ;

and on the other side : —

' Even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto but to
minister, and to give His life a ransom for many.'

Certainly Bishop French, so far as it was possible for one
himself in need of the redemption, strove to the uttermost
to share the great work of his Master. His life was one
long sacrifice : like the apostle Paul, he was a man of one
aim only, that aim was Jesus Christ, and even here on
earth he had attained in good degree the apostolic ideal,
always bearing about in his body the dying of the Lord
Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in
his body ; always rejoicing in suffering, and ready to fill up
that which was behind of the afflictions of Christ in his

flesh for His body's sake, which is the Church ; and always
pressing on to gain Him, and be found in Him, and
to know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the
fellowship of His suflferings, becoming conformed imto
His death, if by any means he might attain unto the
resurrection from the dead.

And now — the wilderness all passed — his soul is with
the Lord in Paradise, and there finds full refreshment,
unbroken peace, and unimpeded access of enlightenment.
His body lies fronting the dawn upon that Eastern shore,
not merely resting, as one who loved him has suggested,
but watching still. In death, as in his life, he is a sentinel
and witness, claiming those barren regions for their one
true King; waiting until the day break and the shadows
flee away; waiting until the Sun of Righteousness arise
with healing in His wings.

Stirred, or it may be even shamed, by his example, may
every reader of these volumes share in his holy vigil, and
help on, as he may, in life or death the object of his hope,
breathing the prayer of the sweet Psalmist, and the beloved
Evangelist, and the expectant Church of every age : —

* My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch
for the morning : I say, more than they that watch for the
morning.'
