    Father Damien by Robert Louis Stevenson FATHER DAMIEN AN OPEN LETTER TO THE REVEREND DR. HYDE OF HONOLULU SYDNEY, FEBRU Sir, - It may probably occur to you that we have met, and visited, and conversed; on my side, with interest. You may remember that you have done me several courtesies, for which I was prepared to be grateful. Over the years I have read numerous books about Father Damien and watched films about his life. This volume is the most complete collection of his own words that is available in the English language. As such it is a fascinating read, especially for anyone with a devotion or affinity for Father Damien.

    Excellent Story of Father Damien and Sister Marianne. This museum is well worth a visit. The exhibit tells the story of Father Damien and Sister Marianne and their work with the lepers on Molokai. The museum is small but we spent well over an hour in the museum TripAdvisor reviews. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Compton, Piers. Father Damien. London, Ouseley [] (OCoLC) Named Person: Damien, Father Saint; Damien, Father.
