Foolscap (32 x 20.5 cm), 2 pp. Bifolium. 51 lines of text, in neat copperplate, followed by a list, in the same hand, of sixteen signatories. Good, on lightly-aged paper, with slight creasing at head. Clark, after whom the town of Clarkabad is named, was described by a contemporary as 'perhaps the most famous missionary in the Panjab for length of service and energy of work'. The address describes instances in which Clark has shown himself to be 'a well-wisher, heart and soul of the Indian Christians'. The section begins 'On your recommendation the Revd. Mr. Daud Singh, Mr. Abdullah Athim, and Mr. Rao, deceased, and Baboo Ishan Chandar Singha, got the piece of land (on which this village of Clarkabad is situated) for the support and benefit of Christians - It is therefore known and named after your blessed name.' Due to Clark's efforts 'there is not a single piece of this land, which is not populated by Christians', so that the church building is being extended. Other examples of Clark's 'great favour' are given. The sixteen signatories include eight clearly of Asian origin (i.e. 'Robert D. Singh', 'Ashiq Allah', 'Nihab Dass', 'Wadhawa Singh').
