Description

In this four-page short story, author George W. Sadler offers an account of a missionary trip to Africa. The story makes comparisons between African culture and American culture, claiming "social life in Africa means more than it does here." The author also makes a note of the sense of humor that must be held during a trip to Africa because of "the shadow of the blackness of heathenism falls on one."
