This chapter focuses on Archbishop Benson's interest in the Church of the East and the Assyrian mission. Riley's report of November 1884, Narrative of a Visit to the Assyrian Christians in Kurdistan, called for the establishment of two mission stations, one at Urmia which would house the printing-press, and the other at Kochanes where a seminary would be founded. Three priests would be required initially, with the head in particular ‘a theologian and a gentleman’. The task of finding personnel and money to carry out such plans was difficult. But the personal dedication of the Archbishop and of Riley, and the interest which they generated, were sufficient for it.
