[illustration] Inside back cover: Back o' Hill Road, Stirling, Scotland, by Diane Dean. May not be copied. As a missionary in Scotland in 1898, David O. McKay noticed the stone plaque in the upper right corner of this building. He found inspiration in the words carved there-"What-e'er thou art act well thy part"-and said, "That was a message to me that morning to act my part well as a missionary."
