Miss Lucy J. Webb, arrived in Shanghai, China, in August of 1922. She worked as a Methodist missionary from 1922 to 1943 and from 1946 to 1951. Her memoir describes the labor done by the many missionaries in Shanghai during those years, with special attention to the work of Moore Memorial Church. This chart shows the difficulties of correct usage of tones in the Chinese language and how tone changes the meaning of words.
