Anna, wife of the missionary David Hinderer, arrived at Abeokuta in Nigeria in 1852, before proceeding to Ibadan. Although dogged by ill health, Anna was responsible for keeping the mission going, especially during her husband's absence in Sierra Leone and elsewhere. A popular work in its day, the first edition is uncommon.
