NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS. There were issued from the Bible House in the languages of the North American Indians 1,610 volumes, of which 258 were for Choctaws, 972 for Dakotas, 313 for Creeks and Seminoles, and the remainder for Cherokees and Ojibwas.

CONCLUSION. In concluding their Report, the Managers would repeat, with emphasis, words which were recently spoken at a Bible meeting in Massachusetts by their revered associate, the IIon. Robert C. Winthrop, LL.D., the Senior VicePresident of the Society. After alluding to the fact that Carlylo and John Stuart Mill were agreed that if the Bible could be buried for a generation and then dug up again it would, in that case, be riglıtly enjoyed, he says: “The Bible buried for a generation! Who would like to belong to that generation ? No Psalm of David! No prophecy of Isaiah! No Gospel of St. Luke or St. John! What a generation that would be! No Sermon on the Mount ! No story of the Passion and the Cross! It is for us and our successors, as it has been for our predecessors, to provide that the Bible shall not be so buried for a generation, or for a year, or for a month, or even for a day, but that it shall at every moment be within the easy reach of all who may desire to partake of its precious counsels and comforts and Divine Truths."
