McBryde is somewhat more broad-minded and less conventional than the others, but in the final analysis his attitude is the same as theirs: the Indians are inferior. The Missionaries Mr. Sorley and Mr. Graysford have one goal in mind, to convert the Indians to Christianity. Their aim is benevolent; their motives are pure.

The missionaries cannot quite agree that God loves all his creation equally, and the Hindu cannot accept a religion that does less than that.

When he sees her going down the hill he rationalizes away the peculiar circumstances of her hasty departure, such as the broken strap of her field glasses, which appear to have been unceremoniously dropped, and the disappearance of the guide.
