In Southern India: A Visit to Some of the Chief Mission Stations in the Madras Presidency

Author: Mrs. Murray Mitchell
Publisher: Religious Tract Society
Publish Date: 1886

One hardly ever meets with a traveler's narrative so thoroughly lively and so full of instruction as these notes of a lady's journey in company with her missionary husband. She notices little things but never gives us small talk; she describes her own experience and yet never puts herself in the forefront. One knows all about missionary operations in southern India after reading this journal; and at the same time, the country itself is before you as the background of the picture. You are amused and saddened and in every case interested; and you do not wish to lay down the book till you have read it all. To Presbyterians the volume will have the chief charm; but every lover of our Lord's kingdom will be pleased with it. Friends of Zenana work, we specially commend to you this work upon India, written by a woman. Dear ladies, please make a note of this.
