Excerpt from The Continuation of a Story

Ten years ago we began the Nursery work in a little, long, low mud-room, which was kitchen, food-room, night and day nursery, all in one. Now we have spread into nine nurseries and a kindergarten (overcrowded at the moment of writing), and are in the throes of building several new cottage nurseries. Crawling round the compound is a wall which, when finished, will be nearly a mile long. Truly we are in the middle of the Continuation.

But to my mind the evidences to this happy fact are even more discernible outside the compound than in it Ten years ago to mention the Temple children was to court an incredulous smile or that peculiar sort of silence which chills the very marrow in one's bones. "No such children in this city," wrote a missionary of forty years experience to Mr. Walker, when, in order to collect facts for me, he wrote to certain of his brethren. He also wrote to Indian brethren, known to himself as men who had pierced under the surface of things as few, even Indians, have; and from that city came tidings of secret marriages of young children to the gods; and to that city we traced not tens but scores of little ones, only four of whom we were ever able to reach. "Have you seen the myth?" asked another missionary of one who had been staying with us at Dohnavur. To him as to many another. Temple children were creations of an imagination more ardent than informed.
