For William Henry Westcott's pioneer evangelism in Coniston, Westmorland and later, with his brother Upton, in the Belgian Congo, see Roger Shuff Yatol, 'In Ruskin's Shadow: Darbyite Brethren in Coniston, 1895-1975' in Brethren Historical Review xvi (2020) 117, 133 . Apparently the author was able in 2019 to access < http://www.stempublishing.com/authors/Biographies/ westcott.html > but this seems (in February 2021) to be no longer accessible.  Timothy Stunt

Is it just me, or is Mr. Westcott, in the photo above, wearing a shoe on one foot and a slipper on the other?

Thanks Tom! Perhaps one day I'll manage these simple things for myself! It's a very interesting account but as far as I can see it never tells us which Congolese language Westcott was working on. Can anyone enlighten me on this? Timothy Stunt

W. H. Westcott was translating the scriptures into the "Luna Inkongo" language. There were as many as 500 languages in the Congo area.. The complete "Luna Bible" was completed in 1932.
