more consoling. When he was near the end he called for his only son, James, and taking him by the hand, said: "My son, your papa is dying. He will very soon be dead. Thou, my son, remember these things: Be a good boy; obey your mamma; and love Jesus Christ. Now remember these, my son." Soon after he became speechless and in a few moments more fell asleep. He died August 3, 1822, in the thirty-ninth year of his age. A suitable monument erected at his grave bears an inscription in English and also one in Tamil.

One of the first projectors of American Missions, He gave himself first to Christ, And then to the Heathen. A Physician both to the soul and body. He was In health, laborious, In sickness, patient, In death, triumphant; He is not, for God took him." Rev. Dr. Daniel Poor, who was associated with Mr. Richards in the mission at Ceylon, and who was with him in his last hours, thus describes him: "In regard to his personal appearance, Mr. Richards may have been about five feet eight inches in height; but being of a slender frame, or rather the reverse of being a corpulent man, he was in appearance rather tall. He was of a sandy complexion, and his countenance was a fair index to the man—though cheerful, yet mild, grave, and prepossessing. His manner of preaching was plain, didactic, and pointed, evincing an earnest and devotedspirit rather than very remarkable talents. In this connection, however, it is to be remembered that he attained to a good degree of respectability in two professions, theological and medical, in the time usually allotted to one." Though, on account of his ill health, he was prevented f...
