Front Inscription

Giving thanks to God for John Richardson, Bishop of Melanesia, 1877-1892, Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge, 1893-1898, the son of George Augustus Selwyn, Bishop of New Zealand and afterwards of Lichfield, founder of the Melanesian Mission.

John Richardson Selwyn gave himself to the work of this Mission in 1872 in strength and love; sick and maimed he laid it down, in both alike obedient to the will of God: he entered into rest on 12th February, 1898, in his fifty-fourth year.

"A Servant of Jesus Christ."--Rom. I, 1. 
"A teacher of the Gentiles."--II. Tim. I., 11.
