the small funds hitherto at its command, the Church has bravely carried on various agencies; a band of faithful Missionaries has been supported, hundreds of children have been already educated in its Schools and Orphanages, many Bibles have been circulated, and much Christian work has been faithfully done.
The importance of this earnest Scriptural Church, raised up among the 50,000,000 Spanish-speaking people, can scarcely be over-estimated.
The undersigned have agreed to form the nucleus of a Committee in aid of the work of the Mexican Episcopal Church; and they confidently recommend the Mexican movement as thoroughly sound and Scriptural, and deserving the warm support of all Protestant and Evangelical Christians.
J. C. RYLE, Bishop of Liverpool.
H. WRIGHT, Prebendary of St. Paul's Cathedral, and
J. A. FAITHFULL, Vicar of Holy Trinity, Leicester.
FRANK A. BEVAN, Treasurer.
Those of our fellow-Christians who may be willing to form themselves into local associations to work in connection with this Committee, are invited to do so; and any who may wish to aid the work by circulating pamphlets regarding it, can write for them to Mr. C. Stuart Thorpe, 8, Adam Street, Adelphi, London.
The Church in Mexico needs funds
1. To sustain its Orphanage, Church Schools, and Theological Seminary, and to assist its young men who are preparing for the Ministry.
2. To meet the expenses of several of its faithful and hard-working Missionaries, who have to care for more than fifty different congregations.
3. For Church buildings.
4. To publish Spanish Prayer and Hymn Books, and some Christian pamphlets and other publications.
5. To circulate the Holy Scriptures.
Contributions in aid of this work should be sent for THE MEXICAN EPISCOPAL CHURCH AID FUND, a branch of The Spanish and Portuguese Church Aid Society, and forwarded either to its Treasurer, FRANK A. BEVAN, Esq., 54, Lombard Street, London, E.C.; or to the Rev. L. S. TUGWELL, Spanish and Portuguese Church Aid Society, 8, Adam Street, Adelphi, London, W.C.
Cheques and Post Office Orders (on Charing Cross Office) should be crossed "BARCLAY, BEVAN, & Co."
In forwarding contributions for this object, please be careful to state that they are for "the work of the Church in Mexico.'
HIS GRACE THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY,
In a communication dated the 19th December, 1879, commends the Bishop of the Valley of Mexico to the sympathy and goodwill of the faithful in Christ Jesus.

SERVICE FOR THE KING.
A MONTHLY RECORD OF WORK FOR THE LORD
IN CONNECTION WITH THE
Conference Hall, Mildmay Park.
EDITED BY MRS. PENNEFATHER.
THE promoters of this Magazine thankfully acknowledge the measure of success which has been accorded to it during the first year of its issue, and they feel encouraged to continue the publication during the ensuing year, if the Lord will, all the more that its circulation has in no way diminished the issues of a kindred Magazine. "Service for the King" has not yet reached the point of self-support; but an addition of one-third to the present monthly circulation would place it in the position of paying its way. Will our subscribers then put forth some little effort to secure this addition to the number who already receive and read our monthly record, whilst on our part the endeavour will be sustained to provide in its pages such practical and interesting papers as may prove stimulating and profitable to Christian Workers?
TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION.
