Letters: Man without a mission

From Mr Roland A. Hill

Sir: To take the letter from The Rev B. A. Hopkinson (14 August) one step further, when I told fellow guests at my son's wedding (in South Carolina) that I had worked in Central Africa for 27 years, the presumption by all the guests present was that I had been a missionary. What else could I possibly have been doing?

I had been at one time a District Commissioner in the Colonial Service.

Yours faithfully,

Roland Hill
