The Superintendent hopes Finley will excuse the liberty she has taken in writing to him. She desires to give him some information concerning the progress of this Society. They started with about 200 members and while some have left, many more had been added, at this time, there are about 300 members. She thanks the Lord that they remembered the "children of the forest." They now have 12 girls who are the managers and 8 out of that number have progressed to know the forgiving mercy of the Lord, and also several of the boys. She tells how cheerfully the young people contributed their "mite" and hoped it would be accepted by the Mission. She had written to Brother Gilvutte concerning the clothing and he had desired plain materials. It would be gratifying to the children to know about those little boys in the school -- their age and size and progress. Her charges would like to send them some books and such things as they need. She said they named a little girl in this Society but have never known as yet whether Finley received the information. Abstract Number - 836
