M. Wylie

Short Name: M. Wylie
Full Name: Wylie, M. (MacLeod)
Birth Year: 1816
Death Year: 1881

Macleod, Wylie, Esq. Barrister-at-law, and formerly one of Her majesty’s Judges at Calcutta, another old and valuable friend of the British and Foreign Bible society, entered into the heavenly home for which he had been longing, on Sunday, Sept. 25, aged 65.

In Calcutta, Mr Wylie was for many years active in the interests of the Society, as Secretary of its Auxiliary. His communications home were long and important, and have often been referred to in the Reports. In 1855 the Committee on his return to his native country appointed him an Hon. Life Governor of the Society. In 1870 he was a member of the Committee. Mr. Wylie was everywhere an active worker in his Master’s service.

His life latterly was often one of suffering, but a hymn which he wrote a few years ago shows how he anticipated that rest which has now become to him a blessed reality.
