Mary Reed, Missionary to the Lepers

Mary ReedMary Reed [1854-1943] was an American missionary to India. Diagnosed with leprosy herself in 1891, she took this to be God’s guidance that she should work among the lepers of Chandag where she served for 52 years. Below are links to two titles on Mary Reed, both written within her lifetime. The first I am assuming to be still in copyright to The Leprosy Mission who are happy for my to make it available on-line. It may be used for free educational purposes, but not sold for profit without permission from the copyright holder. The second title is in the public domain. My thanks to Redcliffe College for providing copies of these books for digitisation.
