John Chamberlain was sent to India by the Baptist Missionary Society in 1802. After two years at Serampore he was transferred to Katwa where he established a cloth business and built a school. While in his journal he concentrates on his missionary endeavours, he nevertheless portrays a vivid picture of the difficult conditions in which he worked, and his own views of the peoples he worked amongst.
