"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


oh, help

Admit it. You wish you'd gotten to spend this afternoon reading about Calvinist Belgian Protestants in the Congo. And a book about women Christians in the Congo published in 1936 that begins with this gem:

"Calmly they sleep by the Congo's stream
'Mid those that they yearned to save;
Yet a voice still speaks to the black woman's heart
As she stands by the white woman's grave." - Adapted

Thank goodness O-Line is in town and has organized a gathering for 5pm. I need to get away from this stuff.
