Misc. Comments

  • "Suggested by the recent death of a young Ojibwa girl who by her earnest and tearful persuasions had induced her Missionary teachers (the Rev. Mr. B. and wife) to take her with them on a visit to their friends in the States. Her father had threatened revenge in case of her failure to return."
