Excerpt from Child of the Sea: The Chronicle of Porto Rico

There were in the whole Island unusual problems to be encountered in the first years of upheaval of certain customs and of disturbance of public opinion which attended the change of government from the Spanish to the American - every~day_ problems, involving the foreigner as well as the native, and touching more than the money standard and party nomenclature -even the very thought and language of the people. And the more isolated parts were slower to conform to these changes than were the coast cities, which from the first were in close contact with the Army of Occupation, and later on with the hurried influx of Americans bent upon all manner of enterprise. Therefore, selections from the letters and journals written dur ing the twelve years of the writer's association with the work of the mission (1899-1911) include only such extracts con cerning life in the cities as seem necessary to the continuity of the narrative.
