On August 25, 1792, John Thomas wrote a letter to Rev. John Rippon in which Thomas rehearses the possibility of English Baptists missionizing the Indian people. This letter originated upon Thomas's return to London from his years of work in India, which included his learning Bengalee and preaching to Indian peoples. Later, on January 9, 1793, the "Particular Baptist Society for the Propagation of the Gospel Amongst the Heathen" (i.e. Baptist Missionary Society) agreed to send John Thomas and William Carey to India as its first two missionaries.
