Collection of letters from a missionary in Africa 1912-1921.
- Collection of 13 typed letters, one ALS (handwritten) and two typed manuscripts by Albert William Bailey (1872-1955). Between one and four pages, mostly two. The typed letters are signed and sometimes include handwritten notes. They are on 8 1/2" x 11" sheets, mounted in a 15" x 13" photo album. An 8" x 10" black and white photo of Bailey is mounted on the first page of the album. Bailey was an American missionary, born in New York State, who served in the lumber camps of Maine before heading to Angola in 1914 as a missionary for the South Africa General Mission. He served in Africa until 1947. These letters are mostly to his son, Paul, and describe his life and work in Africa. There are also letters to his brother Edward, one to "Friends" with a postscript to "Brother Hendrickson" and two typed manuscripts, written in Angola. A fascinating, detailed look at early 20th-centruy missionary work in Africa. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
