This chapter details the second decade of the Assyrian Mission from 1896–1904. During this period, conditions for many of the Syrians in both Persia and Turkey became more troubled; Archbishop Benson died; and a Russian Orthodox mission arrived in Persia which looked likely to take away the Mission's clients and its reason for existence. The worst did not happen: the Mission remained in place and even its ideology and morale were largely undamaged. But the scale of its operations was sharply reduced.
