40                        Hand Book 1909.

   We have listened with interest to the report of the Secretary
of the Board and have marked with pleasure the splendid business-
like manner in which he has conducted the affairs and kept the
books of this department Therefore, be it
   Resolved, That we commend the efficient Secretary for his
splendid work and plain, yet business-like method of bookkeeping.
While it is with regret that we note the decrease of the dollar
money in the Second, Third, Fourth, Seventh and Ninth Episcopal
Districts, and while it is true that this is the result of floods and failure
of crops and race riots, yet we regret it just the same; but by the
faithfulness of the First, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Tenth, Eleventh and
Twelfth Districts we have succeeded in making the largest annual
dollar money report in the history of the Church, all of which we
thank God and the faithful people for.
  We have with much sorrow learned of the illness of Bishop
Heard, his wife and the missionaries that accompanied him to the
West African field. Therefore, be it
  Resolved, That we extend to them our sympathy, and pray that
our Father in Heaven, whose loving kindness is so great, may
extend His arm of love around them and restore them back to the
strength and health of former years.
  We also extend our prayers and best wishes to Bishop J. Albert
Johnson and the missionaries of South Africa that God may bless
and keep them in health and happiness until all the work committed
to their trust shall be accomplished
  We are grateful to Him whom the angels delight to praise that the
life of our beloved Bishop Grant has been spared us, and his health
restored, and he is present to-day with renewed energy to lead on
to greater victories than in the past. He presided over this body
with his usual dignity and grace, making our hearts rejoice as he
talked with us by the way. Therefore, be it
  Resolved, That we extend to him our thanks for the fatherly
manner in which he has presided over us, and for his business methods
in the administration of the affairs of this department,  and  we
pray that his life may be spared to the Church and race for many
years to come.
  We also note with pleasure the presence of Bishops Derrick and
Lampton, who report that under God, through Christ, in their dis-
tricts the church is moving on. We pray for them that in their
labors of love and duty, God may pour out His spirit upon them
making their work to bloom in new beauty.
 Also to Miss E. D. Lampton, whose presence was so valuable
to the Board in assisting the Committee and the Secretary of this
Board. We extend to her our thanks for her exaltant service.
