Pearl S. Buck: I moved here just after marrying my husband, in 1917. I would later write about this town, and the surrounding areas, in my books The Good Earth and Sons. For now, however, I continued my work as a missionary, and also worked as a translator for my husband, who was at the time working as a teacher of agricultural methods to Chinese farmers. We moved to Nanjing in 1920.
