had a missionary in the field, that ~

much so they appointed an Cxecu

ceived any funds for carrying oni
the work. Thoey apinfted Rev. j1

We do not itend to appoint a'd

churches want the work done they ci
must send money in adtvance. n
Some think we do not need a
missionary and it is for lack of 2
knowledge of the field. There al- 0

in work in the Twelvo Mile River
