Excerpt from The Diocese of Gibraltar: A Sketch of Its History, Work and Tasks
Many of the colonies of English people thus engaged are settled communities, with English homes, traditions, churches, and burial grounds. Some, indeed, are in great cities Lisbon and Oporto, Barcelona, Seville, Marseilles and Nice, Genoa, Turin, Milan and Naples, Smyrna, Constantinople, Odessa, Baku. But many are far out of the way and out of sight, long miles from a British Chaplain or British Consul General, and live under colonial conditions as truly, though in Europe, as remote settlers in Canada or Australia.
But all are avenues and channels of British trade; and through them, great and small alike, long settled or temporary and tentative, it is ever throwing out, even if slowly, its roots and feelers. In all alike large British capital is invested, and great British interests involved.
