Biographical Notices Of Asaad Shidiak
The following account of the remarkable convert from the Maronite Roman
Catholic church, whose name has, of late, appeared frequently on the
pages of the Missionary Herald, is compiled chiefly from the journal of
Mr. Bird, American Missionary in Syria. The other matter which is
inserted, is derived from authentic sources, and is designed to
connect, or to illustrate the extracts from the journal, or to render
the biography more complete and satisfactory.
