Description
"69. OCEANIE (Iles du Pacifique) - Un Pere Mariste Catechise Les Jeunes Indigenes." ("69. OCEANIA (Islands of the Pacific) - A Marist Father Catechises Young Natives.") Next to a thatched house, a missionary father sits on a stool with a book in his lap and teaches a group of over forty indigenous men, women, and children.
The back of the postcard has a handwritten note in French and contains printed information about the publisher: "L'Oeuvre de la Propagation de la Foi soutient les Missions catholiques du monde entier. Envoyez votre offrande par Cheques Postaux: Paris, 618-25 - Lyon, 72-71 -- Propagation de la Foi: Paris - 5, rue Monsieur (VIIe) -- Lyon - 12, Rue Sala."
