This chapter discusses three groups of missionaries who were part of the missionary fervour that led men to bring their families to China. These groups were the English Nonconformist Union Church Missionaries, the American Missionaries, and the Karl Gutzlaff's Christian Mission. The latter paved the way for the arrival of the Basel Mission, the Berlin missionaries, and the Mission of the Rhenish Church.
