The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 84
The Union was re-formed by Mrs. Leavett in May, 1885.
The patients in the Hospital have been visited each week. Religious and temperance tracts have been distributed to them.
An attempt was made to visit the Gaol, but without success.
Classes are held in two of the Public Schools for religious instruction each Friday.
Sixteen ladies have undertaken the work of visiting the homes and distributing tracts.
Efforts have been made to have unfermented wine introduced into the churches.
Endeavours have been made to induce the Secretaries of Sunday-schools to introduce direct temperance teaching into the schools. We suggested that one Sunday in each quarter should be set apart for temperance instruction, founded on the Bible, and pledges given to the children. Several schools have adopted our suggestions.
The Union meets each Wednesday.
Gratitude is offered to God for encouragement received in the work.
