The English works of Raja Ram Mohun Roy were with great difficulty; republished in 1885, after, having been neglected for 50 years. The author spent the best part of his life and the whole of his hard-earned fortune in writing and publishing these valuable works. After his death however they were neglected and nearly forgotten. It is as strange as it must be painful to every Indian heart, that this should have been so; for there is no subject of importance to India, whether it is social, religious, or political, which has not been dealt with by the Raja with an ability to which few of his countrymen after him, can lay any claim. Reformers and patriots of India of the present age and of ages to come will always find much to learn from the first are the greatest patriot and reformer of modern India.
