On the whole, the Society are encouraged to hope, that their exertions and expenditures, have not been without visible benefit to the people in the various and distant parts of our country, to which they have been extended. Were their means more abundant, their useful operations could doubtless be more extensive and efficient. The missionary field is wide, and the harvest great, where the means of supporting labourers are small. To the Lord of the harvest, therefore, let us offer our devout supplications, that he would raise up faithful labourers, provide the means of their support, and cause that they be sent forth to gather in this harvest.
