Of course in England it would look funny to see a lady of my age all in white, with a topi and pugri and white parasol; but it does not look funny in India. Why, the very soldiers look like figures in plaster of Paris. As for the natives thinking us 鈥淐hinese,鈥?there is no fear of their doing that. I believe that we Missionaries are much respected; we are treated with courtesy; and one of us may walk alone through crowds of hundreds of natives, and never have a disrespectful word.... Therese hesitated. The question was repeated. 鈥榃hat a good thing it has been for your little darling being at so healthy a place during the trying time of teething. I shall expect to see her still more improved, when I have the pleasure of kissing her sweet lips again. How diverting it will be to watch her when she first runs alone!... 鈥極ne might call the Granth 鈥渢he book of yearning,鈥?and I feel humiliated that I, with Gospel light, should in spiritual contemplation and longing for closest communion with the Deity come so far behind these poor Sikhs.

The difficulty was how to get him started. It was not enough that he should be able to cut out and make clothes 鈥?that he should have the organs, so to speak, of a tailor; he must be put into a tailor鈥檚 shop and guided for a little while by someone who knew how and where to help him.
