The deeply interesting accounts received from the agents of this Society at the seat of war, a : taining numerous instances of usefulness, and showing the necessity of the efforts employed this Society, call for the most devout gratitude to the Lord for the blessing He has been plen to vouchsafe, and also, for renewed and more extensive exertion in a cause so full of Evangelbenevolence, and so much needed.

The Committee are encouraged by the liberal response of their friends and the Christian pubere to the several appeals they have made for assistance in the great and responsible enterprise. which they are engaged ; and although their responsibilities are continually increasing, yet wet they not shrink from any sphere of duty, however onerous, believing that their work is of the Læ and that He will not suffer their energies to be restricted for the want of necessary funds.

'It is of greatest concernment in the Church and Commonwealth to have a vigilant eye how books demean themselves as well as men, and thereafter to confine, imprison, and do sharpest justice on them as malefactors; for books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are.'-'Milton.
