and perils, the toils and difficulties of a pioneer missionary, and
describes many of the cruelties, oppressions and wrongs which prevailed in

British Commissioner. A railway from the coast is in course of
construction. Steamers ply on the Victoria Nyanza, and there has been a
marvellous development of Christian work—perhaps the greatest in the
annals of modern missionary enterprise.
