On offer is a super, original manuscript letter dated 1893, Calcutta 12/12 [India] to Aunt Luella wherein her unidentified nephew writes of other missionaries and relations between Christians and Muslims. Here is a snippet: "I went a day or two ago to call on a Mohammedan friend whose husband has been very sick. Speaking of his sickness and how near God had been to him he said, we have a saying that when in trouble we call on God. He says, Do not call so loud my child, I am near you. It is not you who are seeking me but I am seeking you. He is a devout man, I believe, I think a conscientious man as far as he knows and realizes. I came up to C to meet a group of new missionaries whom we rather expected on the 27th but we hear now they will not be here until the 30th or perhaps the 31st. Had I know this I would not have come so soon, but would have stayed to help him ?…So I haunt the New Market a delightful place where the following articles can be obtained in abundance: Hats of straw, books, flowers, plants ribbons…." Interestingly he notes his parents have left on travels allowing him some freedom. The top third of the note has separated from the body and is somewhat fragile otherwise. Overall Fair+.
