[Verulaii) to Durban, where they arrived early in April
after a sea voyage of four months. They went to their old
home at Imfume, awaiting mission appointment. In Aug-
ust by mission appointment they went on to Umzumbe.
where they lived and labored 27 years, till Mr. Bridgman
changed the service of earth for the rest of heaven. It was
a wonderful and gracious Providence that kept them there
till the work was so firmly established on a self-supporting
basis that a resident missionary was no longer needed. A
capable native pastor had been ordained and placed over
the church, which was pledged to his support. The Um-
/.\inibe Home for Girls was also fully organized, and pre-
pared to go on in its good work with an able corps of
teachers, ilr. Henry M. Bridgman d. Aug. 20, 1896, ae. 06
yrs., in South Africa.
Tlie temperance work, actively begun in 1879, had done much
in clearing and strengthening the church, at last resulting
in a reform in all the churches. The out-station work was
also stimulated and enlarged, and has been going forward
with steady and increasing power up to the present time.
Jlrs. Bridgman was president of the Natal W. C. T. U. and
actively engaged in the work, having been appointed to that
position by Mrs. Leavett when on her round-the-world trip.
She gave up the presidency on account of Mr. Bridgman's
failing health and the great distance from the work, it
being a journey of four days by oxen to the nearest local
union. After her luisband's death she taught in the boys'
school for two year,-, since which time slie lias been en-
gaged in translating lor publication, and in filling gaps, in
teaching and other work, visiting with tlie people, etc., etc.,
Tlie translated work was printed in Boston, Mass., 1904.
Since its completion she has returned to South Africa where
she is (1906).
\\"hile at Imfume and Umzumbe they were much interested in
Sunday-school and in the woman's meeting, and among the
people who lived near or came within their reach. Their
