I am gratefully indebted to Bishop Roots who inspired me to undertake the study of ancestor worship, to Professor Francis C. M. Wei, Dean of the Central China University, Wuchang, for his invaluable and generous aid, to the Rev. F. L. Hawks Pott, D.D., and the Rev. John W. Nichols, D.D., for their very kind assistance in correcting the proof, and to my wife for her valued help in some of the difficulties of Chapter IV.
