Volume 2B is a treasure trove of information on the life and work of missionaries in Inner Mongolia during the second half of the nineteenth century, including the material and spiritual organization of the mission, seminary formation, orphanages, expenses and revenues, language learning, and many observations on local crops, climate, famine, and so forth. It also details the complexity of the relations the CICM missionaries maintained, not only among themselves, but also with Propaganda Fide, French Vrncentians, native priests, Chinese authorities, and French representatives in charge of the protection of Catholic missionaries.
