This chapter focuses on Webb's life following his resignation as US consul to Manila. It describes Webb's Oriental tour aimed at gaining support for his American Mission, which took him to Burma, and then India, his chief destination, where he spent almost half the journey. The excursion kept him in the public eye and introduced him to the practice of public lecturing, a craft that would be of great service to him in America. He also caught the attention of the Indian press as well as American reporters, whose stories created considerable notoriety for him in the United States.
