"This little story is fiction, but it is fiction based on fact. A large part of the incidents have occurred much as here described. Names habe been changed, incidents which occurred at widely separated places have been localized in one place, some of the characters are composite, and the binding thread of the story is largely imaginary, but an effort has been made to picture the method of the spread of the Gospel in Chosen (Korea) as the Koreans themselves have seen it, and the ideals for which the Church there stands."--Preface.
