In 1864, a Punjabi prince, the Maharajah Dulip Singh (son of Runjit Singh) visited Egypt. He was a Protestant convert and became acquainted with the AME staff, serving as a benefactor to the Mission. He requested the help of John Hogg and Sarah Dales to find him a pious Christian wife, and they recommended to him a young student in the School for Girls named Bamba. They were married in June 1864. See Elder, pp. 37-41, and Sharkey, pp. 36-37.
