THE following Memoir of Bishop HEBER has been carefully collected from the numerous notices of himself and his works in the various English periodicals, and from an attentive perusal of his Indian journals. It has no pretensions to originality. It might easily have been extended to a much greater length, but the writer has thought it best to confine himself to a mere narrative of the Bishop's life and labours, and such incidental remarks upon his character and principles, as seemed to be required by the great estimation in which he was held wherever his name was known.
