Abstract

The London Missionary Society (LMS) set up a mission in Singapore in 1819. Besides preaching and running schools, the LMS also started the Mission Press, the first printing press in the settlement. Although the LMS closed its Singapore mission in 1847, Benjamin Keasberry, a former LMS missionary, remained in Singapore as an independent missionary and continued printing, preaching and running his school for Malay boys until his death in 1875.
