We acknowledge with gratitude to God and to his people the fact that our receipts during the month of February are such as greatly to encourage us.

We are cheered, not only by the benevolences which are reporting themselves from the churches, but also by the kind words of sympathy and helpfulness which show us anew that this great and exigent work upon us was never nearer than now to the hearts of our pastors and churches.

We may add that the month just past and those immediately before us are those upon which we must largely depend for our fiscal year.  We are coming to the summer season, when contributions are less likely to be taken.  We trust that those who believe that God has called the American Missionary Association to this immense work in the name of Christ, will not cease to pray that the hearts of men may be moved to heed the appeals of those who, through us, ask for the very bread of life, and who will not have it unless we carry it to them.
