Kirghese-tartar Version of the Scriptures

Kirghese-Tartar Version Of The Scriptures The Kirghese-Tartar is a dialect spoken by the Kirghese in Siberia and Turkestan. In 1818 the New Test. was translated by Charles Frazer, a Scottish missionary. Since this mission was abandoned, nothing was done for the circulation of the Word of God among this people, numbering about 1,500,000. In 1879, however, the British and Foreign Bible Society issued an edition of three thousand copies of Mr. Frazer's New Test., it being printed at the Kazan University press, under the care of professor Gottwaldt, who arranged the verses in the new edition as they stand in the Greek and English, besides revising a few passages which were badly translated.
