Description
"Our gatekeeper, a special friend of Victor's, who used to talk with him quite often. I think he had lost his wife some time before, and had then married a fine Christian girl who, unfortunately, because of a terrible facial scar had not found a husband. 'Dzausy', as we called him, said, 'Why, I'll marry her!'...and the marriage turned out to be a very happy one, with the 3 children pictured here."
Captions for this set of lantern slides from the papers of Oliver and Jennie Logan, American Presbyterian missionaries in Hunan, were provided by their daughter Elsa.
