This chapter discusses Dr. John Philip and his colleagues' visit to Weymouth, a coastal town in southwestern England and the center of Thomas Fowell Buxton's parliamentary district. The visitors made a very powerful impression on the town, so much so, that Tzatzoe, Philip, and Read were each presented with a portrait of Buxton himself. Tzatzoe and Read spent three days at Oxford, with both speaking at a public meeting, a Sunday service, and a public breakfast. At a crowded meeting in a little chapel in Read's hometown, a young, most pious and zealous curate of the Church of England presented Tzatzoe with a very handsome compass, which always pointed to the north—just as the Bible always pointed to Jesus Christ as the way to heaven.
