more efficient work during the present year than ever before.  These
schools are the right arm of the Board in extending its work among
the Freedmen.  In almost every instance a school organized means a
church in the near future.
    The following table of receipts from the beginning of our work
among the Freedmen to the present time will show how the Board has
grown in the sympathy and confidence of the churches.  This growth
is really remarkable when we consider the prejudice which existed
against this work at its beginning both at the North and the South.
This prejudice was wide spread and in many localities intense.  It
will be remembered that the first Secretary, Rev. S. C. Logan, D. D.,
found great difficulty in getting into many of our churches in the
North to present the work of the Board.
    It will be noticed that the receipts of the last 11 years more than
doubled those of the preceding  11 years, and exceed the entire
receipts of the previous 15 years by $554,371.91, and that the receipts
of the last five years exceed those of the immediately preceding six
years by $199,984.41.
