that problem the divine philosophy of the Gospel offers the
only solution ; it is the persistent force of the revelation of
regenerating grace. Within that gap the Missionary stands.
And we are helpers with him, if we nourish his strength by
sympathy, call down heavenly aids by prayer, furnish material
forces by our alms. And then cometh the end. For Christ
must reign until He hath put all enemies under His feet.
He reigns through the work that His Church is doing, His
Missionaries, and you and me. And then the end, when this
evolution of Christ in all His members shall have wrought
out every possibility of mortal perfection, and He shall have
delivered up the kingdom to God even the Father; then
the immortality, the end of the lingering centuries, the
beginning of all things new !

Meanwhile the daughter Church of America sends me
to-day, with greetings to the mother Church of England,
assuring our devoted love, our cordial co-operation, and our
earnest prayers that God will continue to her in His grace
undiminished opportunities for blessing that " world " which
from the beginning of the history of this Society, God " hath'
.set in her heart."
