Samuel Fisk Green (1822-84) was an American medical missionary. He served with the American Ceylon Mission in Jaffna, Ceylon during 1847-73 when it was a British colony. He spent twenty-six years providing medical care to the missionaries. He also founded the first medical school in Ceylon. As no medical books were available in Tamil he translated 4,000 pages of English medical books into Tamil. He trained sixty native doctors with instructions in Tamil. His tombstone at Massachussets, where he died in 1884 says ‘Medical evangelist to the Tamils’. This book first published in 1891 is a compilation of the letters of Samuel Fisk Green by Ebenezer Cutler and is culturally a very important work.
