text: Today I met an American Baptist Missionary and his wife. The missionary, a hearty cheerful American, is also head of the High School. His mission has been working in the Naga Hills since 1876 and has a monopoly of this area. There are only a few stations with American missionaries, but there is a net-work of Naga pastors and teachers in the villages of the Ao, Sema, Lhota and Angami country.
