In April 1828, he established a mission at Tavoy, where he soon afterward baptized Ko-mah-byn, a Karen convert, whose labors were very successful among his countrymen. On 5 February 1828, he set out on a tour among the Karen villages, and met with such success that he determined on a systematic course of itinerary labor. On these trips he was usually accompanied by Ko-mah-byn or sortie other convert. His exertions occasioned the loss of his health and brought on his early death by consumption.
