may be influential in diffusing a similar spirit among those who occupy the same rank of life. The spiritual claims of the heathen, the injunctions of our Divine Saviour to supply those who are ready to perish, with “the bread that cometh down from heaven,” press equally on the poor and the rich, all being required to give according to their ability. It is of supreme importance that this sentiment should be deeply fixed in the heart of every disciple of Christ at the present time, and that an enlarged exhibition of its influence should speedily be made. To accoinplish all that still remains unachieved and unattempted, every band must be put to the plough; every talent, the least as well as the greatest, brought into requisition and zealously exerted, till in the strength of the Lord victory be obtained. The letter referred to is as follows:-

To the Directors of the London Missionary Society, I wish to inform you, that one of your Missionary Collectors lent me, a short time ago, the Missionary Magazines for June and July, 1839, to read. I read about the General Annual Meeting you had in May, and the Special Meeting you had to receive those six poor Christian refugees who have fled for their lives from Madagascar. I have been a penny a week subscriber for fifteen years or more to the London Missionary Society. I believe God has greatly blessed me for it, but from reading the above-mentioned Magazines, I came to this conclusion, that I would give five pounds to the Missionary Society more than my penny per week. I now send the five pounds to you, with my poor prayers that God would bless all the nations of the earth, and every poor heathen with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. CHESHIRE.

APPLICATION FOR COPIES OF THE ANNUAL REPORT FOR 1839.

TO THE OFFICERS OF AUXILIARY SOCIETIES AND OTHERS.

The Directors will therefore be obliged by the officers of Ausiliaries, and other individuals, in town or country, forwarding to the Rev. John Arundel, Mission House, Blomfield-street, any copies of the Annual Report, or of the Abstract for 1839, which the parties to whom they have been sent may be able to spare, in order that the wants of other Auxiliaries may be fully met.
