Henry Martyn (1781-1812) was an Anglican priest, and a missionary in India and Persia. He produced translations of the New Testament into several languages - Hindustani, Urdu and Persian. [Reference: Wikipedia entry on Henry Martyn, accessed August 2017.] "But it was impossible not to recollect that here Alexander and his Greeks passed and repassed - here they sat, and sung, and revelled; now all is silence - generation on generation lie mingled with the dust of their mouldering edifices" - page 400. "The Prince Abbas Mirza, the wisest of the King's sons, and heir to the Throne, was here some time after my arrival. I much wished to present a copy of the Persian New Testament to him, but I could not rise from my bed. The book, however, will be given to him by the Ambassador. Public curiosity about the Gospel, now for the first time, in the memory of the modern Persians, introduced into the country, is a good deal excited here and at Shiraz, and at other places [. . .]" - page 466.
