The American Missionary — Volume 42, No. 12, December, 1888 eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 136 pages of information about The American Missionary — Volume 42, No. 12, December, 1888.

By the generous gifts of a few gentlemen who appreciate Dr. Roy’s life-long work we are enabled to send 100 copies of the volume to some of these friends, who would greatly value the book, but are not able to pay for it.

The executive committee of the American Missionary Association has unanimously appointed Prof.  Edward S. Hall a Field Superintendent, to examine and report upon the work of our schools and churches in our Southern field.  Prof.  Hall is a graduate of Amherst College, has had several years’ experience as a principal of High Schools, and of late years has been a successful Superintendent of Schools in one of the cities of Connecticut.  He brings to this work a large and immediate acquaintance with educational methods, and a personal practical experience.

We commend him to our missionary workers in the field as a Christian brother, prepared in sympathy and in experience to assist them in the various phases of their work.

We have received 350 copies of a volume, very neatly printed and bound, entitled, “The ‘Come’ and ‘Go’ Family Text Book, containing ‘Come’ and ‘Go’ Texts for every day in the year.”  And accompanying the generous gift is this note:  “A friend of the colored race takes pleasure in furnishing these books for the workers and advanced pupils in the schools under the care of the American Missionary Association.”  We thank the donor in behalf of those who will gladly welcome and diligently use the gift.

Back numbers of the “American Missionary.”—­During the last ten years we have had frequent applications from public libraries and from colleges for back numbers of our Magazine to make up complete sets.  Our supply has been exhausted and we have been obliged to decline.  An appeal now comes from the Professor of Church History in Oberlin Theological Seminary, in these words:  “As the Association is closely connected with the history of Oberlin, I wish to put my classes in American Church History on the history of the Association.”  The Oberlin library contains nothing complete till 1880.

Can any of our subscribers supply the want to a college so long and so closely identified with the early struggles of the Association?  If so, please address Prof.  F.H.  Foster, Oberlin, Ohio.
