Am. Miss. Soc. (1864-97); nursed Mrs Louisa J Stirling, wife of Rev. Waite H Stirling, 1864 at El Carmen, where she died; son: George William Humble; a daughter died young; George Musters wrote in his book: “the English Mission Station, a considerable building occupying two sides of a square, a wing containing a room used as a chapel, whilst the other constituted the residence and dispensary of the missionary, Rev. Dr. Humble. This gentleman, whose hospitality I frequently enjoyed, combined in his own person the functions of doctor and clergyman. As regards the mission, the converts did not appear to be numerous; indeed, an Indian girl, who acted as servant and nurse, seemed to be the only specimen. the whole establishment was scrupulously neat and clean, and afforded an agreeable contrast to the surrounding buildings.
Dr. Humble formerly had a school for children, but it was given up, I believe, on account of the opposition raised by the Padre. The church was generally pretty full on Sundays, when the British flag was hoisted to denote the hour of prayer; and as half the service was conducted in Spanish a good sprinkling of the native inhabitants was generally present—some perhaps with a view to obtaining advice from the pastor in his medical capacity, in which his skill and kindness made him deservedly popular.”
