the years 1910, 1911 and 1912, bearing interest at 5 per  cent.  The
Institute is insured for $12,000; the premium  is $150.00 per annum.
  I hope to pay the installment for 1910 before leaving to visit the
countries on the eastern coast.
  When I return to america to attend the Conference of 1912 I shall
bring the transfer Deeds etc., etc. for your inspection D. V.
  We  are hoping the returns to the Missionary Department from Eas-
ter, 1910 will enable that Department to make a larger apportionment
to the 14th District for Mission work.
  Earnestly soliciting your prayers and sympathy,
                        I am, my dear Brethren,
                          Your fellow  laborer in our Lord's vineyard.
                                             JOHN ALBERT JOHNSON.
February 1910.
Capetown, South Africa.
       Extracts From Letter Dated  at Capetown South Africa,
                              July 1910.
  March 1, 1910 I paid the first installment, $2875, received through
Doctor B. F. Watson.
  Just returned  from  three months trecking  I have had rare expe-
rience, compassing  the  field  in Griqualand, west, Bechuanaland, Rho-
desia, Trasvaal and  Swayziland, to the Portugese country at Delagoa
Bay, where I have an organized work on the Indian Ocean coast; along
the Drachensburg Mountains to Mapava Hill in Natal. We  covered 3000
miles at a cost of 55 pounds; $275.00, yet this will repay a hundred
fold in gracious results. For 12 years  those people have been waiting
to see an.A. M. E. Bishop  * * * * * * * * Now the people come to us
faster than we can pastor them.  I look for 30,000 or 40,000 members
in the Transvaal Conference alone. in a few years       * * * * * * *.

To the Council of Bishops.
  DEAR  BRETHREN:
  I have the honor to submit to your venerable body a statement of
my work in West Africa; as it will be impossible for me to be present
at your mid-winter meeting.
  First- I greet you as fellow laborers and praise God that I am alive
