By conducting the services in English, which, at first, of course, he was compelled to do, Pfeiffer gave the people the impression that he was preaching about a foreign God. “The English,” said the Indians, “have a book which speaks of God, and, therefore, they know more of God than we do. God loves the English only; He takes no notice of the Indians.”
