The story of the life and work of the author's father, an American Quaker who was born in 1815 and died in 1885. He journeyed widely as an ambassador in the cause of the illiterate and downtrodden, and in doing so raised considerable sums for his coloured countrymen in the Southern States. Then follows the record of Yardley Warner's work in this country from 1876 to 1881 when he travelled extensively to plead the cause of millions of his fellow countrymen so recently delivered from bondage. The Appendix contains extracts from his Journal for the years 1870 to 1873 and his letters to Anne Elizabeth Horne, of London, whom he married in 1877. Illustrated with B&W photographs. Signed by the Author on title page.
