The total of the above issues, it will be found, is over two hundred and thirty-
seven millions of Bibles, Testaments, and Portions, distributed through the agency
of Bible societies alone since the year 1804.

The American Bible Society is a charitable institution, whose sole object is to encourage a wider circulation of the Holy Scriptures without note or comment.

Its endeavors are directed primarily to the circulation of the Scriptures in all parts of the United States and Territories, by sale at cost to all who are able to purchase, and by free gifts to the destitute.

As opportunity offers it extends its influence to other countries, Christian, Mohammedan, and pagan, to the end that the Scriptures may be translated into all the languages of the earth and distributed as widely as possible.

It invites the contributions and co-operation of all who accept the Bible as their rule of life, and believe that every human being is entitled to know what it teaches concerning truth and duty.

Contributions may be sent through its auxiliaries, or directly to its Treasurer, Mr. William Foulke, Bible House, New York.
