representatives of various foreign Societies, now in the midst of you. Kings and queens, and many of the noble and illustrious, account it their honour and their privilege to foster the interests of your Institution. Others of humbler degree, continue their labours unwearied, both at home and abroad, and cause multitudes to invoke the benediction of heaven

upon it.

Another just cause of rejoicing is the unexpected openings made both for circulating received versions of the Scriptures, and preparing new ones; openings which no wisdom or foresight on the part of your Committee could ever have discovered, nor any exertions of their own have effected. Combinations of events over which they have no controul, have sometimes made a way in the desert, and a high way for our God. Your Committee have been led, step by step, in the train of others whose pursuits are widely different; but among whom, many have been unexpectedly found willing to render assistance. Merchants, soldiers, statesmen, and literary travellers, have each pursued their own avocations, and have left a path where all was trackless waste before, in which the peaceful labourers of your Society might follow and make known that word by which, all that is lawful and all that is good in human affairs, may be used so as not to be abused, may be sanctified to the glory of God and the comfort of man, while all that is evil may be corrected.

Such are some of the benefits already realized. Without indulging in too sanguine hopes, your Committee still feel encouraged by past experience to anticipate even greater things than any they have yet seen. The mountain shall become a plain, the valley shall be filled up, and many people shall go and say, “Come ye and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his

paths.” May the Society continue to be one of the favoured instruments of the providence of God in hastening that day when the hymns of heaven shall strike on the ears of the children of men, and when, waked by these sweetest sounds, every creature which is in the heaven and on the earth, and such as are in the sea, shall say, “ Blessing and honour, and glory and power, be unto him that sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb, for ever and ever, Amen."
