Sunny Singapore : an account of the place and its people, with a sketch of the results of missionary work

Although the title of the book is "Sunny Singapore", it is about Christian missions in Malaya (including Singapore) in their geographical, historical and social setting. The author is more than qualified to express his thoughts having spent 25 years of missionary work in Malaya.
