*[Adam, William]. Correspondence Relative to the Prospects of Christianity, and the Means of Promoting its Reception in India. Cambridge: From the University Press--Hilliard and Metcalfe, 1824.

Adam began his career as a  Baptist missionary but became a Unitarian.  This volume,  presented in the form of an extended letter, answers rehearsed questions regarding Christian missionary activity in early nineteenth century India.  Despite its formal packaging, it offers a scintillating if ex parte criticism of missionary methods.  Written at a time when the Serampore missionaries confronted a battle royale of opponents including their own Baptist "junior brethren," the Abbe DuBois, and Raja Rammohun Roy, Adam's work is revealing because it proceeds from its Unitarian perspective against the grain of mission promotion.  Adam criticizes Carey's overly ambitious "range" of Bible translation p. 7) and mentions that a "Mr. Ellerton, an indigo-planter" had "translated the New Testament into Bengalee, professedly improving upon Dr. Carey's version" (p. 8).  He also presents a skeptical appraisal (pp. 9-11) of the translation techniques of the Serampore Missionaries, retailing an accusation that they may have attempted in one instance to translate the Bible into a phantom language (p. 11) and insisting that they worked upon languages that they knew only as they were written, not as they were spoken (p. 71). Adam presents an extensive critique (with a chart for comparison between Griesbach's textual variants and Carey's, Henry Martyn's, and Mr. Ellerton's Bengali translations), noting how Bible translators have allowed "sectarian," by which he often seems to mean "Trinitarian" concerns to creep into their work (pp. 104-114). Adam casts doubt upon the probity of native converts (pp. 45ff.) and attributes to Carey (p. 55) private doubts about the character of such converts.  In regard to results, Adam writes that "Of the Protestant orthodox sects, the Baptists have been the most successful; next to them the Episcopalians; and lastly, the Independents or Congregationalists" (p. 59).   A letter from Raja Rammohun Roy at the end of the volume presents a remark worthy of full quotation: "I beg to assure you," wrote Roy, "that I (though a native of this country) do not recollect having engaged myself once, during my life, in so difficult a task, as the translation of the New Testament into Bengallee" ( p. 137).

Milner offers a stinging critique (419 pp.) of Herbert Marsh's New Testament criticism and view that the British and Foreign Bible Society should not distribute Bibles without an attendant, The Book of Common Prayer.  Marsh's 1812 essay, An Inquiry into the Consequences of Neglecting to Give the Prayer Book with the Bible, had provoked Milner.  Also in 1812, Marsh and other leading members of the Cambridge University had opposed the establishment of an Auxiliary Bible Society in Cambridge, for Marsh believed such an establishment would embolden dissenters through the distribution of Bibles without The Book of Common Prayer Milner's view of cooperation on Bible distribution was unwavering, for he wrote (pp. 151-152):

I would give a Bible either to a Roman Catholic or to a Dissenter: I would join with both, or with either, in dispersing the Bible: I would reason with both concerning the contents of the Bible: and so far from bringing the Prayer-book of the Church of England into the fore ground in the first instance; so far from insisting on an indispensable attention to it as a preliminary in any religious negotiation; I would for a season rather keep it in the back ground, and steer clear of all tender and irritating questions.  Such are the measures I would first adopt, in the good hope and expectation of subduing old and inveterate prejudices, rather than suffer my fellow-creatures to remain in ignorance or error, and rather than widen the breach between us, by an unseasonable introduction of the Prayer-book.  After this, and not before, there might be a fair probability of fixing them, as rational converts, among the steady members of the Church of England.
