by Sara Jeannette Duncan

Copyright© 2011 by Sara Jeannette Duncan

Historical Story: The peculiar conditions of East Indian society bring together Hilda Howe, a gifted actress of sensational play, and Laura Filbert, a salvation army captain. The salvation methods fall with the emotional actress, who , however, comes under the influence of an ascetic priest. The peculiar methods of an evangelistic and a roman catholic mission are described with wit and humour, and also the patho that made the adventures of a "Memsahib and his honour and a lady" so delightful.
