Rev. J. Johnston Walsh A Memorial of the Futtehgurh Mission and her Martyred Missionaries: with some remarks on the Mutiny in India (Philadelphia: Joseph W. Wilson, 1859), p.107
 
Futtehgurh has been honoured as being the spiritual birth-place of the first Christian Prince of India, His Highness, the Maha Rajah Duleep Singh. Though not a member of our Church, yet, both as a resident and Christian convert, we feel that no notice of Futtehgurh and our Mission would be complete without some reference to this interesting personage, and his connection with our indigenous Christianity. His first sight and knowledge of Christian truth, his first taste of Bible doctrine, and his first breathings of the divine life, originated with our little Church, and all were nourished and strengthened by us to their fullest extent. The accompanying portrait, engraved from a photograph sent out from England (where he at present remains) to Futtehgurh, is a very striking and faithful representation of his personal appearance. The reader will notice something very winning about the expression of his face, and which we cannot but regard as the impress of the true religion he was permitted to embrace, and still honours by a consistent walk.
