Abstract

The following autobiographical paragraphs have been selected from several such published in Medical Missions for March, 1894, in answer to questions by a society of London medical students. That society contains not a few young men who are fitting themselves for the foreign field and is known as the "Medical Missionary Association of the London Hospital." In answer to the question, What sort of work does the missionary get? Dr. Sidney Hodge, of the Hankow Hospital, replies that he gets every kind of work that he would get at home.
