Jessie Luther | April 1952


From time to time, a reminiscent word has come to me across land or sea, and I have met face to face some old associates nearer home. But whether they are far or near, I feel that among all who have shared the experience of life in the Mission, and especially those who labored together in the early difficult years, a bond exists that will endure. To those now living who shared this experience and to the families of those who are now a memory, I send greetings.

from Jessie Luther at the Grenfell Mission, an annotated edition of a travel journal that Luther wrote from 1906 to 1910, edited by Ronald Rompkey (2001)
