St John's College, Newfoundland,
January 7, 1856

I received your kind letter by the December mail, and am very sorry to hear of your illness. The weather here is very cold, I feel it more than at Cape York. I have begun to skate, and find it a pleasant amusement. There is a lake a little distance from the College, called, 'Quidi Vidi,' on which we practise. The Bishop is very kind and good to me. College here is not so large and fine a place as St. Augustine's: nor are there so many students. I hope that all my kind friends at Canterbury are quite well. Please remember me kindly to Mr. and Mrs. Gipps, and all at St. Augustine's. With kind love to yourself,

I remain, yours affectionately, Kalli."

1856

St. Peter's Day falling this year on a Sunday, the Commemorative Services at St. Augustine's College were of a more domestic character than is customary on such occasions. The Chapel Services commenced at ten o'clock, when Morning Prayers and the Litany were said by the Sub-Warden and one of the Fellows. The Holy Communion Office was said and the Sermon preached by te Bishop of Colombo, his Lordship taking for his texts Acts xii. 8. The Warden read the Gospel, Exhortation, &c.; the Rev. A.R. Symonds, a Missionary Clergyman from the Diocese of Madras, the Epistle. The Office for the Commemoration of deceased Benefactors was read by the Warden; and the Te Deum, and the Missionary Hymns in that Office, as well as the Gloria in Excelsis and Ter Sanctus, were devoutly chanted byt he students. The College dinner, as usual on Sundays, was at half-past one o'clock; and the only guest present were those friends who had attended the Chapel Services - viz., the Bishop of Colmbo, Sir W. James, Bart., A.B. Hope, Esq., Rev. A.R. Symonds, Rev. George Gilbert, the Principal of St. Thomas's College, and Charles Kemp and T. Smart Esq. of Syndey. After dinner Nashotah and other kindred institutions were not forgotten. At three o'clock the company resorted to the Cathedral or to St. Gregory's (the afternoon duties of which Church are undertakein by the Fellows, as the Sunday school is taught by the students.) The Bishop of Colombo preached at St. Paul's Church in the evening, from St. Matthew xiii. 31, 32; when about 9l was collected for the wants of his own Diocese. The evening was concluded by prayers in the College Chapel at nine o'clock.

On Monday afternoon, the Bishop of Colombo preached in the Cathedral, before a numerous congregation, from Luke ii. 30-32; and a collection was made in aid of the funds of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, amounting to 42l. 5s. The Warden and Fellows of St. Augustine's receive a large party at dinner at five o'clock, including the above-mentioned guests, the Archdeacons and Canons of the Cathedral, and other friends of the Missionary cause. In the evening a meeting in support of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel was held in St. George's Hall. The archdeacon of Maidstone presided, in the unavoidable absence of the Dean of Canterbury. A collection was made at the doors amounting to 14l. 8s. 6d. Several of the Clergy and foreign visitors returned to St. Augustine's College, after the meeting and attended Evening Service in the Chapel at ten o'clock.

c. 1856 (he studied for a year and a half at Canterbury 5 hours a day to learn the Tailor trade)

Kalli arrived in St. John's on the 2d October 1855, and was immediately admitted into the College of Theological Institution, for further training; and it was the Bishop's intention to have taken him, this summer, in the Church ship to the coast of Labrador, with the view particularly of comparing his language with that of the Esquimaux on the American continent, who are included under the government, and consequently in the Diocese of Newfoundland.

These projects it was determined in the good providenc of God, were not to be realized. During the winter Kalli suffered frequently from cough, and showed other signs of constitutional weakness. His cheerfullness, however, seldom failed him; his readiness to please and be pleased, to oblige and be obliged never. In letters which he sent to friends in England, he always spoke with gratitude and kindness shown him, and of being very happy. And during his last illness, which though short was not without considerable suffering, the same spirit of resignation and thankfulness was envinced to the last, "D... very kind," "K.... very kind, "Mrs...... very kind", "sorry to give so much trouble" were expressions continually on his lips as he was visited and assisted by his fellow students and other friends in succession. He devoutly and readily assented when reminded of God's gracious purpose in visiting him with sickness. His gentle spirit gently departed while the Bishop was commending it to God, "his faithful Creator and merciful Saviour" in the prescence of Rev. Mr. Wood, the Rev. Principal of the College, and all his fellow students.....

He died of a peculiar disease of the lungs of long standing, and of which symptoms had been observed in England, the nature of which is, when developed, to progress with fearful rapidity.

He was borne to the grave by his fellow students, and followed by the Bishop and the Vice Principal of the College (who had been his fellow student at St. Augustine's), as chief mourners. The burial service in the church (St. Thomas's) was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Wood, and by the Rev. Mr. Mountain (the Principal of the College), in the cemetery. The quiet solemnity of the service was in keeping with the life and death of hte gentle Kalli."

The Colonial Church Chronicle

 

Erasmus Augustine Kallihirua (Qalasirssuaq, he was an Inuit), baptized at St. Martins Church. In 1854 he left England for Newfoundland. He died June 14, 1856, in Newfoundland. (Catechist Student) Twenty Five Years at St. Augustines College, A letter to the students (from Lat. 76 degrees N.; through Capt. Erasmus Ommanney, R. N., baptized at St. Martin's Church, advent sunday 1853. Memoir by Rev. T. B. Murray, SPCK, OP 5. 19.

*there is a picture of him at the National Maritime Museum website

"It has not pleased God to allow the hopes to be realized, which had been formed concerning the usefulness of Kallihirua. But we may feel thankful for him, that he was brought to this country, and that he here became a member of Christ, and lived and died in the faith. He has soon followed his fellow-student at St. Augustine's, Mr. Levin, whose death at Adelaide we lately announced."

"The writer of this Memoir well recollects the circumstances of a visit which he paid with his family to St. Augustine's College, Canterbury, on a bright day, in August, 1853, when (it being the vacation) only three students remained in residence. These were 1. Kallihirua, 2. A young Hindoo by the name Mark Pitamber Paul, and 3. Lambert McKenzie, a youth of colour, a native of Africa, sent to the College by the Bishop of Guiana. Cal, who was the only one of these personally known to the author, did not at first appear. He had strolled out to witness a cricket-match in a field near Canterbury, but Blunsom, the College porter, said that he had promised to return by two o'clock, and that he was very punctual.

It is here due both to Blunsom and his wife, to say that they were most kind friends to Kalli, watching over him with the most thoughtful attention, and the tenderest care throughout.

As the Cathedral clock struck two, Kalli entered the College-gates. With hair black as the raven's wing, and eyes sparkling with good-humour, he made his appearance; and soon showed a desire to do the honours of the College. His dress was neat, like that of a young English gentleman, and he had a gaiety of look and manner, but far removed from foppery of apparel or demeanour. With true politeness - that of the heart - he accompanied the visitors over the Library, the Chapel, the Common Hall and the Dormitories of the College; each student having a small bed-room and study to himself."

Marmoud Effendi (from Constantinople), admitted March, 31, 1860, died November 5, 1865 Twenty Five Years at St. Augustines College, A letter to the students ** (admitted through Rev. C. G. Curtis) OP 93

** I question the name, thinking this may be Mahmoud or Selim Effendi baptized as Williams (see below) *Rev. Edward Williams (also known as Selim Effendi)

The Rev. C. B. Dalton, on the part of the Board of Examiners, presented the candidates. The first, Mr. Prentis, had been educated at King's College, London, on the Worsley Foundation, the object of which is to train candidates for missionary work in India. He was about to proceed to Bombay, as a catechist and candidate for Holy Orders. The three other candidates, whom it was his office to present, had been educated at St. Augustine's College, Canterbury. Mr. Culpepper** had been selected for a Mission to the heathen in the Diocese of Jamaica by the Bishop of Kingston, and he would probably be stationed at Honduras. The next candidate was a Turk by birth, of the name of Mahmoud. He had been a major in the Turkish service, and had come to this country for instruction in engineering, and was converted here from Mohammedanism. He returned to Turkey, and was offered a high appointment on condition of his renouncing Christianity. He came again to England, and , notwithstanding his age, became a student at St. Augustine's. He was to stop at Malta, and would there be ordained, and would then proceed to Constantinople to labour amoung the Turks. The next candidate was also a Turk (formerly Selim Effendi), but he had been baptized, and had adopted the name of Williams. He was to go to Constantinople as a catechist, with a view to Holy Orders. Mr. Dalton bore high testimony to the efficiency of St. Augustine's College.

The Bishop of London then addressed the meeting and the candidates. He confirmed Mr. Dalton's testimony as to the value of St. Augustine's College.

At the request of the Bishop of London, Bishop Chapman and the Bishop of Honolulu addressed a few parting words to the Missionaries. Mr. Hawkins then read and delivered to each of them a letter of instructions. The blessing was pronounced by the Bishop of London.

+ Of the four clergymen engaged in it in 1865, two are Turks - the Rev. Edward Williams also know as Selim Effendi, and the Rev. Mahmoud Effendi, who had been carefully trained at St. Augustine's College, Canterbury. Mr. John Williams, the son of the former Missionary, after a course of training at St. Augustine's assists in the mission as catechist. The Mission School, ably constructed by an English schoomaster, Mr.Coldham, and constantly superintended by the senior missionary, the Rev. G. C. Curtis, continues to be one of the most interesting features of the mission. Work in th Colonies by the Church of England 1865

c. 1861 a note in The Colonial Church Chronicle... The Junior Fellowship at St. Augustine's College is now vacant

 

It was resolved that Mr. Mitchell, late student of St. Augustine's College, Canterbury, who has offered himself for missionary work at Pekin, shall for the present place himself at Singapore, to labour under the direction of the Society's Missionary there.

 

The Bishop of the Diocese, who is now on a visit to England, held his last ordination at St. David's Cathedral Church, Hobart Town, on Sudnay, February 16th, when the Rev. C. Arthur, B.A. of Oxford, the Rev. F. Hudspeth, B.A. of Cambridge, and the Rev. A. Mason, of St. Augustine's College, Canterbury, were admitted to the order of the priesthood. All these gentlemen ordained were Tasmanians.

 

The future employment of medicine in aid of the spread of Christianity may be effected in two ways. In the first place, the missionaries who go out in a distinctly spiritual capacity should likewise be taught medicine. This is thoroughly well done at St. Augustine's College, Canterbury (an Institution whose foundaiton is due to a suggestion of Mr. Brett, Surgeon, of Stoke Newington), in which the remais of the old Monastery dedicated tot he Apostle of England are restored, and converted into a college for the educating of Church of England missionaries to heathen. Not only do the students visit the Canterbury Hospital twice a week and receive clinical instruction from the Physicians, but they attend a course of fifty-nine lectures, delivered by Dr. Lochee, and are required to pass a Medical examination which would do no discredit to a M.B. of the University of London. It seems to be recorded as a thing of happy augury, that one of the first missionaries sent forth was successful in the treatment of the broken arm of a sailor in the ship which was conveying him to Nova Scotia.

c. 1863 - On the Fourth Sunday in Advent an ordination was held, in the mission-church of Palamcottah, Tinnevelly, by the Lord Bishop of Madras, then on his first visitation to the Tinnevelly Missions. Seventeen candidates, all engaged in missionary work, were admitted priests and deacons. Of these, eleven were natives. The Europeans ordained were: deacon - J. Stephenson, St. Augustine's College, Canterbury; priests - Revs. J. Macdonald, Cambridge; N. Howiss, J. Simmons, and W. P. Schaffter, Church Missionary Institution, Islington; J. M. Strachan, St. Augustine's College, Canterbury...... There was a great gathering of Tinnevelly Missionaries on the occasion; an occasion which those who were present will not soon forget; a welcome testimony to all interested in the cause of God, of the progressive life and vitality of the Church of England Missions in South India.

*We are sorry to have to record the decease, on August 26th, while on a visit to Welsh Hampton, near Ellesmere, of Jeremiah, son of Moshesh, Prince of the Basutos, who was a hopeful student at St. Augustine's College, Canterbury.

Christian Consolation to Mourners. A Sermon, preached in the Chapel of St. Augustine's College, on the Occasion of the Death of Jeremiah Moshesh, of Basuto Land, and Student in the College. By the Rev. Henry Bailey, B.D., Warden of the College. Canterbury 1863.

We announced in our last issue the decease of a hopeful Student of St. Augustine's College, Jeremiah, son of the South African Chief, Moshesh. He was buried in the churchyard of Welsh Hampton, near Ellesmere, in which place he died, while on a visit to the Rev. T. M. Bulkeley Owen, the incumbent of the parish. He was never robust, and during the last few months of his life he had shown signs of not being in sound health, but he continued his usual employments, and at the Examination in June last he took the first place in most of the Classes. The Occasional Paper, of September 21, says of him, that "he was a youth of great thoughtfulness and close observation, improving his opportunities in the Christian land, with the steady view before him of doing good service to his relations and countrymen, on his return to Africa next year."

In the Preface to the Sermon, whose title we have placed at the head of this notice, we have the following particulars: -

"Jeremiah Libupuoa Moshueshue (Anglice, Moshesh) was one of the sons of the famous chief Moshesh, of Basuto Land, in South Africa, whose contributions to the Exhibition of 1862 in the Natal Court will be remembered. Jeremiah was, as I believe, first brought to a knowledge of the truth by French Missionaries. After his baptism by them, he was transferred to the Bishhop of Capetown's Kafir College at Zohnebloem. He remained there for a year or two, and approved himself to his teachers by his good sense and industry, and especially by his preserving efforts, by God's help, to overcome his natural sensitiveness and other faults of character. At the end of 1860 he was nominated, at the special desire of Governor Sir George Grey, as one of four to be sent over to St. Augustine's. All of them were confirmed by the Bishop of Capetown, and received their first communion in February 1861; and they arrived in England early in June of that year.

He invariably commended himself to us, and to the numerous friends whom he secured, by his genuine politeness, his remarkable considerateness, his good common sense, his intelligence and perservering industry, his reverential demeanour, his steady pursuit of all kinds of knowledge - particularly of the Holy Scripture, and what he thought would be useful to him in future life. And whatever might have been his influence over his own countrymen in future years, the glad experience of which, doubtless for wise reasons, has been denied us, we may humbly but surely turst that, in his own person at least, the Christian training which he received was blest to the saving of his soul."

*We have yet to speak of a distinct portion of territory which will be included in the Bishop's new diocese, and which is perhaps the most interesting part of his Mission-field. The country of the Basutos is a large mountain district, wholly independent of the Free State Government, and claiming protection from the British rule. The population is estimated at 180,000. They are governed by a number of petty chiefs, who in turn are subject to the rule of the great Moshesh, who calls himself "Chief of all the Basutos." He is described by those who know him as the finest chief in Southern Africa. For more than thirty years he has governed his people with wisdom and firmness, and is regarded by them with the utmost superstitiuos veneration. He has constant disputes with the Dutch about boundaries, and in past years has had differences with the authorities at the Cape on the same subject, but still desires to be considered " a child of the Queen of England." Last year he sent to the Governor of the Cape a long written statement, containing a history of all his dealings with the British, which he earnestly desired should be forwarded to the Home Government, with his urgent request that a British resident should be appointed to his mountain fortress of Thaba-Bassio. We understand that his request is about to be granted by our Government, and that the gentleman who is likely to be appointed is one who is well acquainted with the Basutos, and deeply interested in the progress of missionary work among them. About thirty years ago a few Presbyterian Missionaries from Paris penetrated to these tribes. They were kindly received by Moshesh, and have been at work with some success among the people ever since. He himself, though not a Christian, is anxious that teachers from England should be sent to his people; and a son of his own, a very promising young man, is at this very time a student in St. Augustine's College, at Canterbury, with the view of qualifying himself for the work of a Missionary among his own people.

The son of another chief, named Mopelli, is also at St. Augustine's with the same object; and it is hoped that these two young men, if spared, may be the nucleus of a native ministry in this interesting and important field. Another son of Moshesh, who is himself a chief, lately sent a written application, accompanied by his photograph, to the Bishop of Capetown, asking for a Missionary to be sent to his people. He is afraid that "his white friedn has thrown him away." After he was assured that the Bishop would try to supply his wants, he writes: "Ever since I received that letter of yours, I have almost been unable to sleep at all for thinking of it, and for joy at the hopes of having a Missionary. Pray for me to the Bishop to make me his child and watch over me. My great wish is to show the Basutos at home, and those who are with me, what was the good of my every going to Capetown, and how I mean to oppose heathenism, when I have got a Missionary to second me. Although I have not yet succeeded in conquering every heathen custom which is in opposition and enmity to God, I do not expect to do so alone. I still trust, with the help of God, that a time will come for this new country, when I shall have conquered them." The Colonial Church Chronicle

*As Mr. A. W. Brereton, of St. Augustine's College, was rowing down the river towards Barton Mills, on June 8th, he overheard a conversation which ultimately led to his discovering that a boy had by some means got in the water. Brereton at once ordered the boat to be drawn ashore, and without divesting himself of his clothes, for a space of nearly half-an-hour, dived and searched for the body of the unfortunate child, but without success. The above event makes the sixth time that Brereton has risked his life for the sake of others. The Royal Humane Society sent a medal to the College, which the warden publicly presented to Brereton in the College Hall.
