Duff's Share in the First Jubilee of the Church Missionary Society.
Having thus founded and organized his second college, the Free
Church General Assembly's Institution, Dr. Duff's next care was for
the branch schools by which the educated catechists and converts
were evangelizing the rural districts. Takee, the first, was the
property of the Chowdery clan of Hindoo landholders. They too
remained faithful to their alliance with Dr. Duff. To secure a
healthier position in which European missionaries like Mr. Fyfe
could live without serious risk, they removed the school from the
somewhat inaccessible rice swamps to their town residence in
Baranuggur, a northern suburb of Calcutta, now known for its jute
factories and industrial prosperity. The Established 38. THE STORY
