Cincinnati: Elm Street Printing Company, 1881.
Softcover. Good. Single issue of this periodical (which was in the midst of undergoing a name change to better reflect its broad content) dated December 1881. pp 401-428, including index for the entire year. Includes much content on the state of missions and living conditions among the Indians of Alaska. Also reports on missionary efforts in Iowa, Nebraska, and Dakota Territory and among the Mexicans of California, as well as account of individual missionaries' experiences in British Columbia and at a Blackfoot Medicine Camp and two and a half pages of ads for books and periodicals, railroads, photographers, a seminary, life insurance, etc. Stain to one corner affecting entire issue, otherwise very good. Sheldon Jackson (1834-1909) himself established more than one hundred missions and churches, mostly in the Western United States. He is best remembered for his extensive work in Alaska.
