I had such an interesting account of the Baptism of B鈥攏, the Brahmin at Batala, from Mr. Beutel, supplemented by one from Sadiq. They were both present.... Mr. Beutel observed that he (B鈥攏) had had to go through more than many do in a campaign. Why, except the Catechist and his wife, he is the only Christian that we know of in that fierce, bigoted Batala. As the Muhammadans did not know of the time fixed for the baptism, at the beginning of the Service by the tank not many people gathered; but seeing that something was going on, gradually a crowd collected.
