Siam: Kenneth's Letter: Mae's Health, Huit Church


Kenneth reads a letter about his mother's health. He learned that the cancer was completely removed during the operation. Victorine Smith had become the housekeeper because of Mae's failing health. Kenneth had problems with the Huiat Church. The evangelist would have instruction in the Bible at night and then help them prepare their lessons for school. The governor decided this was against the law and ordered the preacher and the chapel to be closed. Kenneth had to intervene to straighten things out.
