PREFACE.

Ar no period since the reformation, have christians appeared so fully to understand the obligation that rests upon them-resulting from that command of the Saviour, "Preach the Gospel to every creature," as within the last twenty years. During this period great efforts have been made to establish the gospel at home and abroad. The Missionary has been sent forth, not only to Heathen lands, but to the destitute regions of our own country.

The Christian world were not aware of the alarming destitution of the means of grace

that prevailed even in many of our older settlements, and in not a few of the country towns along the Atlantic border, until they began to address themselves to the business of exploring the land.

As these facts became more obvious, christians of every denomination felt that they had a duty to perform in relation to this matter.

It would have been wonderful if the ministers and members of the Episcopal Church had not sympathised in these efforts to evangelize the world—and supply the destitute regions of our own country with the means of grace, and the institutions of the gospel! They have not been altogether insensible to their duty in this matter. They have felt their hearts drawn in yearning tenderness not only towards the dying Pagan, but also towards the christless sinner in our own land. They have accordingly attempted to pitch the Tabernacle of the Lord in many destitute towns
