'Missionary Herald' 1889 help please?

I'm trying to track down  George A.Wilder's 1889 piece, 'The Expedition to the Kraal of Gungunyana, Gaza Country' in Missionary Herald vol 85 pp 55-58. Does anyone know whether there's a library in UK that holds it? Or can anyone help me to get a copy from elsewhere within the next week or so? (Probably best to reply to me personally, rather than clutter up the list).

There are three tantalising snippets on Google books, but no full text version available online.
Huge, huge thanks to anyone who can help!
