The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 84
The gaol has been regularly visited by the ladies appointed. Mrs. Roberts, Biblewoman, is also a visitor.
In reviewing the work of the past year, we have much cause for thankfulness to God for the measure of success which has attended our efforts, and would take this opportunity to record our gratitude to those who have assisted us with the means to carry on the work; but a rapidly increasing population, and the present depressed state of the times, occasion increasing demands on our sympathy and help. If we would meet the wants of the day and fulfil our mission, time, effort, and money are required; and let us ever remember our highest mission is to work for God and humanity. We would, therefore, earnestly solicit your prayers, sympathy, and co-operation, feeling assured that if, in dependence upon Divine aid, and looking for the promised blessing, we go forward animated by the one desire and aim of succouring the needy, and leading the outcast and neglected to the fold of Christ, we shall not labour in vain; knowing that He whose glory we seek, and whose children we would fain benefit, is Lord of all, and will in due time crown our feeble efforts with success.
