DAY, Samuel Stearns, missionary, born in Leeds County, Canada, in 1808; died in Cortlandville, New York, in October 1871. He was graduated at the Hamilton literary and theological institution (now Madison University) in 1835, was ordained, and sailed for India, landing at Calcutta in February 1836. He went to Vizigapatam, and in 183'7 to Madras, in order to qualify himself for his work. He was appointed to the Telugus, a large and intelligent race of Hindoos, numbering about 14,000,000, and occupying the country between Orissa and Madras, removed to Nellore, the centre of his field, in 1840, and labored zealously among the Telugus for eighteen years He made a short visit to the United States in 1845, and returned to India. He could not endure the climate of the Madras coast, and was compelled to return to his native country in 1863. Where he toiled alone in the east and without apparent results, several Churches and schools are now established for the education and training of native missionaries.
