About the authors (from Wikipedia):

Cable and French were stationed in Huozhou, Shanxi, and often traveled in the surrounding area. After 20 years in Huozhou, they believed that the mission should be turned over to Chinese leaders and the three applied to work in relatively unknown, largely Muslim western China. Although there were doubts that women should be assigned to this region, their proposal was accepted in 1923.
