This Permit of Residence allows Margaretta S. Ridgely to live for one year in Liberia. Then sixty years old, Margaretta spent 1929 as her twenty-fifth year residing in the country where she served as an Episcopal missionary and founded a school for girls. Instead of collecting her salary as a missionary, Margaretta redirected the funds to support the efforts of a missionary in China.
