This report is published for the benefit of the Armenian sufferers, and is an interesting narrative of the expedition. The illustrations are numerous and instructive.

Miss Barton and her corps have placed here an enduring record of her latest and best work in the cause of humanity. Nothing is set down in malice, nor are the instances of misgovernment by the "unspeakable Turk" shielded. The constant courtesy and respectful treatment of the Turkish Government is acknowledged.

The report is a plain unvarnished tale of human misery and suffering, phenomenal cruelty of the Mussulman, and heroic efforts of relief by a philanthropic society.
