Marseilles, 28th February, 1903.

Dear Mr. Cooke,

We left London) on Thursday morning and after an uncom-
fortably rough crossing arrived here on Friday at 10-30 a.in-
to find ourselves most kindly and hospitably welcomed! by Mr.
and Mrs. Husband, who have taken us into this hotel and
treated us as their guests.

Our boat, the Manora, is late, and will ntot sail till
to-morrow afternoon, and though I am anxious to arrive at
Rangoon as many days before Palm Sunday as possible, and
therefore regret the loss of a day and a half here, yet the rest
is very pleasant for us, and we shall have a quiet Sunday morn-
ing here. We, means the Rev. R. H Courtenay, my elder
sister, and myself.

Let me introduce Mr. Courtenay to your readers. He has
been nine years in Holy Orders, working from 1894 to 1899
at S. Pauls, Princes Park, Liverpool, and since that time at
S. Cuthberts, Monkwearmouth.

So in him we gain a workman of no little experiences I
will only add that he is a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin,
and that he volunteered to go out as a Missionary under the
S.P.G., because, though his inclination urged him to stay at
hornet he saw clearly that mem were more needed abroad. We
may well pray for more such menu

He goes out with me as my Chaplain, and will take charge
of S. Philips Church, Rangoon, till we can find a priest of some
experience for that most important English-speaking congrega-
tion. Then Mr. Courtenay will be set free to devote all his
time to preparing for Missionary work proper.

It is a pity that he cannot from the first give up all his time
to this preparation, but S. Philips has been sihepherdless now
for some months, and in order to prevent its congregation from
being left without any services at all, Mr. Ellis, of S;. Gabriels
Churchl, has taken charge.

I wish the straitened sitate of our work in Burma could
be burnt into the minds of Einglish Churchmen as it has been,
burnt into mine during those last eight or nine weeks;. It is a
striking picture of an undermanned portion of the Army of

God.


2

At Rangoon S. John's College and S. Mary's School,
with their large numbers of Christian boys and! girls, ha.ve
no Chaplain. For at the best of times, they have only one,
and he (Mr. Mahon), unfortunately is now at home invalided.

At S. Philip's, where the work is completely in English, the
numerous and valuable congregation is without a priest.

At Mandalay, the Mission Church which was built by a
former Burmese King, and whose Font was presented by Queen
Victoria., is served by only one English clergyman, Mr. Leader,
and he, I have lately learned, is seriously ill and ordered home.
This is no- young Mission- It is more than! 20 years old And
yet we have only one English priest there, and nomlei to fill his
place when he is ill.

Again- at Moulmein we have been still longer at work
since 1859. Yet here the same story is to be told. One
priest is in obargei, Mr. Day. He is ordered home on account
of ill healthand there is none to fill his placet

At Kemmendine, Mr. Rickard ha had to do his wojrk of
revising the Burmese Bible (and proud we ought to be that
one of our staff is able to undertake work so honourable), to-
serve the Church, to supervise the School, and to act as Principal
of the important Theological Institute) from which we hope to
draw more native clergy in the future. Three or four years ago
Mr. Rickard broke down through overwork. Nowso far as

I can! learnto prevent a repetition of such a catastrophe, Mr.
Whitehead has been called in fromi his proper work among the
Chins (they must be for the time completely abandoned), and
is assisting Mr. Rickard.

This is our one Burmese Mission station), where it may be
said there are two ordained workers, but how can we move one
of these two?

Mr. Courtenay will relieve the pressure by taking charge
of S. Philip's Church. But as for the other vacancies I cannot
at present say how they will be filled. I ami sure that some
curtailing of the work must be made and) that on no slight scale.

It is very sada grievous revealing of our need1. We! at
home must surely show more self-sacrifice in giving up our-
selves, our sons, and brothers, and our money, if the Cross of
Christ is to be preached in its glory to- those in Burma who know
it not.


However our prospects of re-inforcements are encouraging.
There are', I think I mlajjr say, three! young clergymen who- are
willing toi join our forces ini the autumni or ait the dose of this
year, and I trust that by that time one of two older priests
may ha,ve been, found ready to come out.

I have omitted to mention yet one other vacancy. Mr.
Parry, who is at present at Mandalay and hias been acting as
Commissary and Archdeacon ini thei absence of thci Bishop and
of Archdeacon Dyer, writes that, lie is soon to leave for ai post*
ini Lahore Diocese.

This completes our list of vacanciesMoulmedn and!
Majnjdalay which require men who know Burmese well, S.
Philips, the Mandalay Chaplaincy where no foreign tongue is
required, and S:. Johns College where a beginning can be made
at once) in English.

I wish to commend these needs to the prayers of our
friends, and we may well alsoi pray that. Mr. Mahon, who*, as
we all know, is now in England, Mr. Leader, and Mr. Day may
be restored to health.

Also I ask for prayers that, one or two Clergymen who are
now considering whether the need's of Burma constitute a call to
them., may be guided aright.

But we have much cause for thanksgiving, and I hope
that our gratitude will find expression no less sincere- and
frequent than! our needs.

(1) It is a great, accession, of strength to- have Mr.
Courtenay on our list of workers. And, please remember,
that within a month he had volunteered to the S.P.G., accepted
the call to Burma., tom up his roots in. England-, and taken
train with us from London). (2) The Rev. E. V. Eardley-
Wiimot, at present working with Canon Erskine Clarkei, in'
Battersea., and the Rev. Mortice L. Man, of Hale, near Farnhain,
are ready, D.Y., to come out. and help us before long, while a
third young priest, of about the same standing is also- willing to
join us. I am waiting till I know more of the work in Burma,
by personal experience, and then I hope to be able to fix
definite times andi places for those clergy to join us.

But. .let me emphasize the fact that those gentlemen have
only recently received priests orders, and' that for some time


4

they must work with an. older and experienced workman who
may act as guide and councillor. I hope to* be able to arrange
that each of them may live with me for some little time at
first. This will be a great pleasure to me personally, and I
hope that the friendship thus to be formed may serve to pro-
mote the spirit of unity and fellowship in our common work.

(3) A third cause* for thanksgiving. This is personal, and
yet through my office it acquires also a general character. It
is the great encouragement which ha.s been given me* by the
gatherings of friends o*f the diocese of London and Winchester
these I dare say you will elsewhere recordby the* kindnesis
of my friends at Cambridge who have laden me* with generous
tokens o*f friendship, and especially by the consecration in the
Abbey on St. Matthias Day.

I cannot write all that I feel with regard to that. Ini the
lives of few men, I fancy, are more clearly emphasisedl the
responsibility o*f their work and the promise of strength from
above. Anyone who reads the promises! which a Bishop
makes at his consecration will find the needs of the Bishop
there expressed. If friends of the diocese will pray for the
Bishop, those promises! and indeed all the Consecration Service*
will supply ample suggestions for intercession.

But your stock of patience must now be almost exhausted,
I will briefly mention the other matters which I do not wish to
pass by in silence.

This letter has spoken much of the need of more clergy^
The need is real. Yet it would give a false impression if I
were not to mention that we have such workers as Mr. Best
and Mr. Bamber at S. Johns College, to mention) only two, and
our lady Missionaries) of the W.M.A. as well as others. I have no
doubt that, their presence doesi much to fill the gaps. But it
canniofc alter the fact that we have many serious vacancies
actual or imminent* at a time when wei ought to be boldly
advancing in tl^p name of our Lord to- open fresh fields.

Bishop Straohan, to my great delight, was able to take
part ini my consiecratiom. All his friends must, have* been
pleased to see him strong enough to stand the strain of so long
a servica

We welcome three more Diocesan Secretaries of the R.D.A.,
I hope the) number will continue to* grow. Now is the time
to increase among Church people knowledge (a) of the country


5

which w hope to flood with the gospel of our God and Saviour,
(b) of the men and women (truly a tiny band!) and thei methods
by which the wiork isi being done. This will include some
realisation! of the importance of our work among Englishmen
and Eurasians in Burma., and of the characteristic difficulties of
the work. In a little time, I d!o mot doubt, I shall be forced
to appeal to you for more money, but I ask first for sympathetic
study without which further appeals will be useless.

During this term at Cambridge Burma ha&i been, very
prominent. Mr. Kenny gave two most interesting addresses,
one to a. good audience of undergraduates, and I had four
opportunities of making our work and needs better known. For
one who knew the situation of Rangoon a couple of months ago
there 0a.re now twenty. I have little doubt, and I believe that from
my old College) and from the University not a. fetwf will answer
to the call to come over and help- us. But that will not be
for several years yet.

I must, have you get fromi others an! account of our meeting
at Winchester. I am very thankful for it.

Our work is one. It depends as much, on the Church at
home as on the Church aibroad. May God help, you at home
and us abroad to walk worthily of the Gospel of Christ.

We are just proceeding to* our boat.

With, kindest regards, I am,

Yours most truly,

ARTHUR M. RANGOON.

THE BISHOP'S CONSECRATION.

The Rev. Arthur Mesac Knight, D.D., was consecrated third
Bishop of Rangoon at Westminster Abbey on S'. Matthias Day,
Tuesday, Febmaiy 24th, the Bishop Suffragan of Leicester being
consecrated, at the same Service. The Yen. C. H. Boutflower,
Archdeacon of Furness, preached an. impressive sermon.

Dr. Knight was presented by Dr. Strachan, the late Bishop
of Rangoon, and the Bishop of Ely.

The Archbishop was assisted by the Bishops of Ely, Peter-
borough, Wakefield, Wellington (N.Z.), and Bishops Mitohdnson,
Montgomery, and' Strachan.


6

There were present in the congregation Rev. A. Shears, Dr.
Marks, and Rev. G. H. Colbeck, exmiissionarie; the Veil.
Archdeacon; Dyer, Rev. B. Mahon, Rev. H. Kenmey, Rev. A. H.
Finn, of the present staff ; three or four prospective missionaries,
all the R.D.A. Secretaries living in flue* London District, and
many of the members.

In the afternoon, the Bishop and his sisters held a reception
at Kingsley Hotel, where past, present, and future clergy of
Burma met a number of keen friends and supporters at home.

INTRODUCING THE BISHOP ELECT.

In order to introduce the Bishop Elect to his friends and
supporters a.t home, the Committee arranged two meetings oil
Tuesday, January. 27th.

The first was held by kind invitation of Mrs. Marsden in
her house, 13, Leinster Gardens, and was well attended; and
very representative. Canon Bailey from Canterbury, Mr. and
Mrs.. Garnet Man from Waltooi-ouhThanueei, Mr. and Mrs.
Coplestoni from, Horsham, Archdeacon! and Mrs. Dyer from
Bromley, Miss Hodgkinson from Car Colston, Rev. A. HL and Mrs.
Finn, the Misses Martin, Mrs. and Miss Shuttleworth, Miss
Lathom-Browne and her mother and sisters, Miss Trotter and
other friends from Christ Church, Lancaster Gate, Mrs. and Miss
Edwards, Miss Spearman, Miss Bullock and members of S.
Michael Star Street Working Party, the Misses Wood from
Enfield, Mrs. Ransom, Mrs. Day were some of the fifty present.

Dr. Knight was introduced to each group separately, and
also briefly addressed the whole gathering.

We are very* grateful to Mrs. Marsden for her kind
hospitality.

In the evening a meeting was held at S. Philips Parish
Rooms Dalaton. Fifty-seven were present from the parishes of
All Saints, Haggerston, S. Philips, Dalsiton, and S. Philips,
Tottenham, also Miss Bamber with three friends including a
Tamil from Burma,. The proceedure was similar to that
observed in the afternoon.


7

The collection, in the afternoon was £2 Is. 6d., and the
balance of collection ini the evening, after paying expenses of
tea, was 2s. 6d'. The Committee! decided to use this for printr
ing and postage*, first of these two meetings, and then of notices
of the Consecration sent round to all members. This has left a
balance of 2s. 2d. only.

A meeting was held at Wolvesey Palace, Winchester, on
February 18th. Canon Valpy presided, and was supported on
the platform by Canon Rraithwaitei, The Bishop Designate of
Rangoon,, Revs. G. W. Minmsi, G. Cecil White, and B. Mahon;,
andi Father Hopkins.

After a few words of introduction! by thiei Chairman, The
Bishop Designate of Rangoon spoke at some length of the
responsibility he bad to face, and the encouragement he had
received.

The Rev. G. C. White read! the Report of the Winchester
Diocesan sub-committee, and announced that. £500 had been
placed at the disposal of the Bishop Designate for objects con-
nected with! the Winchester Mission House in Rangoon.

A resolution commending the work of the Winchester
Mission House to the support of the Diocese generally was
proposed by Rev. G. W. Minns, and seconded by Rev. B. Mahon.

An appeal wa.s made successfully for two- donation of £10
to secure one which- had been promised1 conditionally.

A collection taken at thie dbor amounted to- £3 10s.

Amongst, those present we noticed Rev. A. H. Etty, Rev.
and Mrs. E. B. Hill, Sir A. and Lady Arbuthnot, Mrs. Rraithi-
waite, Mrs. Valpy, Miss D. Gore Browne, Miss G. F. Martin, Mrs.
G. C. White and Miss White, and many others.

NEWS FROM THE FRONT.

The S.P.C. K. has granted to the Rev. J. Hacknley £15 for
drugs for use amongst the people of the villages under his
charge; and also £15 towards the erection of a wooden Church
at Kosoko in the Karen Hills, which will cost about £100. The
people themselves have subscribed liamdsomely, and have been
stimulated by the help given by the Society.

The Report, of the* Diocesan Girls High School at Rangoon
shows that the School which re-opened in May, 1898, with 100
pupils, now has over 200. The Government grant has been
increased from Rs. 200 to Rs. 325 a month. Five girls out
of nine passed the entrance e-xanliinatioo of Calcutta. University.
A former scholar, Miss Gladys Harding, has taken the R.A.
degree>, being the second woman from Burma to dto this. The
average number of boarders is 26.

At Maymyo the Girls School openled in February, 1902,
and soon had six boarders, and about 18 day scholars, as many
a.sf the temporary accommodation would allow. An. excellent
site has been given for the permanent building, and funds are
being raised for it..

These two Schools, are managed by the Sisters of the Church.

At T'oungoo on December 29th, there was a successful Sale
of Work. Two stalls consisted entirely of work sent from, the
Women/s Missionary Association (S.P.G.).

On December 30th, a capital Concert was given. By these
two efforts a sum of over Rs. 500 was cleared for the Girls
School.

The Rev. L. Leader sailed for home on Februray 23rd, and
arrived on March 17th, much better for the voyage, but still
very far from well.

S. MICHAELS CHURCH, KEMMENDINE.

We give a view of the Church of S. Michael, Kemmendine,
a suburb of Rangoon. It is of brick with) stone facings, and
will accommodate about 800 people. It has been built almost
entirely by money contributed by Burmese,, aided1 by a grant
from the Marriott bequest.. By far the largest contributor was
U. Palok Pyn, a. staunch man and a. true, the richest and at
the same time the#mosb liberal spirited of the Burmese Christians
throughout the country. He was baptized about 1888 by
the Rev. T. Rickard, and1 died early in December, 1900.

The Chancel of the Church was dedicated on All Saints
Day, 1898. The design was furnished by Mr. W. S>. Paterson..
The temporary Nave then constructed lias since been replaced
by the permanent building. The Font was given by the people
of S. Matthews Church, Cookington, Torquay.






9

There ia a considerable and increasing congregation! of
Burmese Christians, and some English. A rented house; near,
and two additional rooms in another, serve as a School for boys.
It ia hoped soon to have Schools for boys and girls with suitable
buildings.

Close by, too, is the Kemmendine Institute for training
Catechists and Clergy. The accommodation for the students
is very unsatisfactory.

In connection! with the Church a good deal is being done
in the villages of the districta good deal considering that one
English priest, sometimes assisted by a Burmese priest or deacon,
is responsible for all the. work. With two English and one
native priest, and with proper buildings, a great work would
doubtless go on here.

A JUNGLE TRIP.

On, Jan. 19th, Miss Laiughlin, Mr*. Rickard) and I went by
tra.in| about 21 miles and them got into' bullock carts sent to
t us. A bullock cart is likei an English, farmer's cart, only
ii possible more springleesL On a. goodi road it is not un-
pleasant, if rather jolting, but when wei left the- track and went
across paddy fields it was a series of earthquakes. The paddy
fields are divided into squares by mud walls about three feet
high. At this season they are baked a.s hard as iron, and
every time the cart went up andl downl one of these! walls the
effect was astonishing. We had to hold on very tightly.
After about two hours' drive we got to the village of Patam, a
little green place surrounded by mile of reaped paddy fields.
Once or twice we passed threshing floors where the oxen) were
treading out the com ini the old, old way.

We found all the village waiting to' greet usi. Many
of them are Karens, and the women looked so nice in their
Karen, dresses, with, the funny little strips of red cloth stitched
on and flying out in all directions. We went to a very nice
School built by the villagers, and used as a. School in the week
and a Church on Sundays. It has an) altar anld some pictures
sent out from home. The School is doing well. At the last.
Government eixamination, the report, was very good, and as an
evidence of the Mission) work going on, Mr. Rickard's mission


10

was to baptize eleven people, who ha-ve beeni taught and brought
to baptism by the Schoolmaster, Au Nuja, an old Kemmendine
student., aindl a very good hardi working man'. We had break-
fast with a most interested crowd of spectators. They seemed
astonished at our usie of knives and forks instead of fingers.
Then after breakfast the Baptismal Sendee took place. I wish
people at. home could have seen it, it wo-uld have been more
eloquent than hundreds of Missionary Addresses. One old
man was more than 70, and- the rest, were young men., their
wives and two little children. After the Service we! talked a
little while, and Miss Laughlin and I had to. submit to our
clothes and belongings being examined and commented on.
One little! girl pinched) me to see if white people could really
feel. Then we got into our cartsi and started for home arriving
at Kemmendine about 7 p.m. I believe this would be but. one
of numberless similar events, if only we had the means to put
a teacher in eveny village where* one is asked for.

WORK AMONG THE CHINS.

S.P.G. Mission, Prome,

Jan. 25th, 1903.

Dear Mr. Birley,

I thiank you very much for the help which rn.y mission
work has received from. S-. Ambrose and from S. Anns district.
With* last years remittance I hiavej maintained a. Cliin student
at the Kemmendine training institution. My original ideia. was
that he should go for one year only, and then: work as voluntary
lay reader in his own village (of some 30 houses) in? the way of
taking the services1 on Sundays and on other occasions., and of
teaching and preaching informally, to the Christians and mon
Christians in his village and the neighbourhood. He1 is a
very nice tractable youth (about 22); indeed the two Chins a.t
Kemmendine Imve given me less trouble, and more pleasure than
any others of the- students there. I was up- at Pegya., the
only village from which as yet. I have baptised any Chins, three
weeks ago when I baptised the brother-in-law of James Shiive


11

Pyi (your student) and two older men. The mothers of the
students an rite had better be delayed until they were a little better in-
structed and prepared. The Catechist from Kama, goes round
to their village about once a month. I hope to go round that
way again after Easter (in the very height of our hot weather)
when I think there will be several whom I shall be able to
baptise.

I thank you very much for the large pictures and also
for the cards you have sent me, they will be very useful. I
have got out a Magic Lantern with suitable Scripture slides
also; this I got with a small fraction of a, little legacy that
some old friends in Burnley left me for myj work, and I have
also got an additional catechist for itinerating work among the
Chin and Burmese villages of these parts, whom I am providing
for from the same source.

I handed over charge of S. Johns College to Mr. Best, and of
the Kemmendine Mission to Mr. Rickard, immediately after
their arrival on Nov. 24th, and came up here*. I had, how-
ever, to go down to Rangoon (S. Johns) for the Celebration
of the Holy Communion on Christmas Day, and shall (D.V.) be
there again for next Sunday. Just at present the Diocese is in

an extremely weak condition;, especially as to the number of
priests in the Burmese Mission.

I have had of late a good bit of touring (at my own,
expense) among the Chin and Burmese villages in this district,
lying between the river and the mountains (the Aracan Yornas).
In all I have been out 28 days, and reached, i.e., preached in
nearly forty Chini villages and over thirty Burmese. In Prome
too I have continued my work, going out to* find men to whom
I may speak, sometimes meeting with a very promising recep-
tion, sometimes it is quite the reverse.

I am glad to say that we are keeping very well. The
weather is still cool or cold in the early morning, but our
pleasant cold season is hastening to its close.

G. WHITEHEAD.

HOME NOTES,

At a meeting of tlief Executive held on February 19th, at
All Hallows, Barking (by kind permission, of the Rev. A. W.
Robinson), and presided over by Dr. Knight, several changes
in our Organization were made.

It was decided to ask Dr. Strachan and the Bishops of Ely
and Norwich to become patrons.

It was decided to ask the members of the Committee who
were not members of the Executive, to allow their niames to be
transferred to the list of Vice-Presidents; also to elect Dr. Marks
a Vice-President, and to- ask Dr. Oliver, late Commissary, to
remain a Vice-President. Tire Rev. H. C. J. Knight takes the
position ex-officio.

The Rev. D. Tudor Craig's resignation through press of
work of his position on the Executive was accepted with regret.
It was decided to ask F. S. Copleston, Esq., late Chief Justice
of Burma, and the Rev. A. Shillito, Warden of Caius College
Mission., Battersea, to become members.

The Secretary reported that Dr. Knight had secured three
new Diocesan Secretaries, Miss Gertrude Pares, of Brancaster
Staithe, for Norwich; the Rev. H. Taylor, of Lavenham, Suffolk,
for Ely; and the Rev. T. H. Hennessy, of 5, The Crescent, Peter-
borough, for Peterborough.

A grant of £80 for General Purposes, and £54 2s. 9d. for
Special Purposes was made to the Bishop.

Our Patrons

Two of our IJatrons have passed from, us by death, the
Bishops of S. Albans and Southampton. On the other hand
the Bishops of Ely and Norwich and Dr. Strachan have
kindly consented to become Patrons.

Dr. Jacob continues, as the new Bishop of S. Albans, to
maintain that keen interest in the Diocese of Rangoon and our
Association respectively, which he has shown; from, the foundation
of each; and Dr. Lloyd, his successor at Newcastle, has also
become a Patron.


Notice to Members.

It is a great convenience if all subscriptions and other
payments are sent to the Diocesan or Local Secretary where
ever we have one ; and not to- the General Secretary.

The Diocesanl Secretaries will give an, official receipt, and
will be glad to supply boxes and to enrol new members.

General.

The Rev. B. Mahon has been giving Lantern Lectures in the
District around Cheltenham.

The children of Newtown, Newbury, are adopting a Burmese
boy at Shwebo.

Canterbury Diocese.

The Ven. Archdeacon Dyer preached at the Childrens
Service at Bromley Parish. Church on Sunday, February 8th, and
the Vicar, the Rev. A. G. Heilicar, sent in; to us the collection
(£1).

Ely Diocese.

The fact that this Diocese has given Rangoon, its new
Bishop ha9 aroused much interest.

The Bishop has become a Patron of our Association, and the
Rev. H. Taylor, of Lavenham, Suffolk, Diocesan Secretary, and
several new members are already enrolled.

The Cambridge University Junior S.P.G. Association took
India with special reference to Burma as a Mission Field as
its special subject for study for the Lent Term. Meetings
were held at Gonville and Caius College on Jan. 30th, Feb. 13th,
and 27th, addressed respectively by Dr. Kmight, the Rev. H.
Kenney, and the Rev. S. Clair Donaldson.

Mr. Kenney addressed some other meetings at Cambridge
during his stay of some days.

Dr. Knight preached for the S.P.G. a,t Cambridge, at S.
Botolphs in the morning and S. Paul's in the evening of Sunday,
February 8th, and took the chair at the meeting ini the Guildhall
of the Cambridge S.P.G. Branch on Monday, the 9th. Mr.
Kenney also spoke at this meeting.

A great deal of interest in Burma has thus been created,
and we may look forward hopefully for offers of service from
Cambridge men.


14

Dr. Knight's close connection with the Clergy Training
School, both by his own period of personal work in it, and now
by his brother's work as Principal, cannot fail to* have great
influence on* those who pass through it.

Diocese of London.

The General Secretary addressed the Branch of King's
Messengers at S. Philip's, Dalston, on January 3rd; the Enfield
Clerical Meeting on January 20th; a meeting at S. Michael's,
Enfield (for S.P.G.) on March 9th; a meeting at S. Mary
Magdalene, Enfield, on March 19th, and meetings for Children
and) Adults at S. Alban's, Tottenham, on March 25th. These,
except the first two, were illustrated by the Lantern.

Dr. Knight gave a Lantern, Lecture at S. James', Norlands,
on February 6th; and another, a.t a Drawing-room Meeting at
T. J. Walker, Esq., Hampstead.

On January 29th, the Rev. H. Kenney went to- S. Michael
and All Angels', Stoke Newington, G.F.S. meeting, to receive
a beautiful private Communion Set subscribed for by the memr
bers of the Branch, who have for several years supported a girl
at S. Luke's School, Toungoo.

On February 23rd, Mr. Kenney gave two Lantern Lectures
on Work amongst the Kirenis to children and adult* at All
Saints', Haggerston.

Norwich Diocese.

In this Diocese the appointment of Dr. Knight to- the See
of Rangoon has resulted in a- vigorous extension of our Assooiar
tio-n. The Bishop has become a. Patron,, as has also* the Bishop
of Thetford on his translation! to Newcastle.

Dr. Knight and his family are well known in the north
west comer of Norfolk, and they were staying there early in the
year. #

Dr. Knight preached at Burnham Deepdale on December
28th (collection, £3 7s. 4d.); at Burnham Westgate (£1 14s.
lOd.); and Burnham Thorpe (17s. 5d.) on Sunday, January
4th; and addressed a Drawing-room Meeting at South Creake
(H. V. She-rringham, Esq.). On January 5th, he gave a lantern
lecture at Burnham Westgate, and another on the 6th at Wells-
next-the-sea.


15

Miss Gertrude Pares, of Brancaster Staithe, has undertaken
the work of Diocesan Secretary, and has already a good list of
members.

Diocese of Peterborough.

At the request of Dr. Knight, the Re-v. T. H. Hemnessy has
become Secretary for this Diocese.

Diocese of Rochester.

On January 15th, the General Secretary gave a Lantern
Lecture to the K. M. Branch of S. Georges Garrison Church,
Woolwich, founded by the Rev. G. H. Colbeck, and supporting a
boy at S. Johns College, Rangoon, and a girl a.t Shwebo*.

On February 5th, a combined meeting of S. Marys,
Battersea Branch, and Caius College Mission folk, was held in
S. Marys Vicarage Room, and Dr. Knight gave a lantern
lecture.

On March 5th, the General Secretary visited Mrs. Seatons
Working Party a.t S. Pauls, Heme Hill, in connection with
W.M.A., and gave the members a talk oni Burma., for which they
are specially working.

On March 23rd, Dr. Marks gave a lantern lecture for
Rangoon Diocesan. Association at the Parish Church Hall,
Lewisham.

On Monday, March 30th, Mr. H F. Clarke gave a Lantern
Lecture to the Sunday School Children at S. Lukes. Battersea.

The Annual Sale of Work held by S. Marys, Battersea,
Branch, will be held on June 26th and 27th. We trust it will
be even more successful than in former years.

Winchester Diocesan Union.

The Hon. Secretaries of the L.W.A. will be very grateful
if all members who can,will send in their contributions for the
Sale before June 1st.

The children of Bitteme, Southampton are adopting a
Karen child. This is a satisfactory development. Childrens
work for children has not yet been much developed in the
Diocese of Winchester, at least as far as our Association is
concerned.


16

Bach Numbers of Quarterly.

The Secretary lias been gathering in back numbers of the
Quarterly Paper, and has been able* to dispose of seiveral sets,
nearly complete.

He still has four sets (2 to 23) at 5s. each including postage,
and some others less complete at proportionate prices. If any
one wants odd numbers to- complete a. set, application should
be made at once.

For anyone who desires to speak on Burma, these papers
are exceedingly useful.

Portrait of Bishop Titcomb.

The Secretary will be grateful for the loan, or gift of a
portrait of Bishop Titcomb, in order that he many have a. slide
made from it.

1 Dea.r Mr. Cooke, Marseilles, 28th February, 1903 We left Londont on Thursday mJOming 8Jl.d after anJ unoom forta.bly rough arrived here OD! Friday at 10-30 a..m. to find ourselves IIl.OSit kindly and hoospit&bly welcomed) b.y Mr. a.n:d Mrs. Husband, wlro have taken us into this hoteil. a.nd treated us as their guesbs. Our boat, the! "Mru:oora,'' is late, a.nidi will nklit sail till to-morrorw and though I am to arrive a.t Rangoon as many days belfore Palm Sunday as poserilble, a.:rudi therefore regret the loBB of a. d:aiy and a half here, yet the rest is very plea,sant for us, and we sh:all have1 a, quiet morn ing hoce. We," means the Rev. R. HI. ColllliiEma.y, my elder sister, and myself. Let me introduce Mr. Colm"t.e.tm.y to your readers. He has been nine years in Holy Orders, woll"king from 1894 to 1899 at S. Paul's, Prinoos' Pa.rk, Liverpool, and sinoo thiatl time at S. (,'uthbert's, So in him we gain a workman of no little experienoo. I will only add tha.t he is a graduate of Trill!it.y College, and that he volunteered to1 go out as a Missionary under the S.P.G., beoa.use, though h!is incli.n.BltioDI urged him to sta.y at he saw clearly tha.t men1 were mor-e needed abro:1.d. We may well pray foc more such! men. He goeS! out with me as my Chaplain:, and will takeJ charge of S. Philip1s Churoh, Rangoon, till we can1 find a p:rietSit of some sxperience foil' that IIIDSit important Englishr-gpeaking oongregaThen Mr. Courtema.y will be set free to dewotel all his time to preparing for MiE1sionary" work p:l"q>er. It is a pity thia.t he cannot. from the firBit give u p aH his time to this prepe.rat,ion, but S. Philip's has bee!DI !dwtpheroless no.wr for some mo:nths, and in order to preiVenlt ita congrega.tio!Ill from being left without any services at all, Mr. Elli.s, of 8 Gabriel's Churchl, ha.s taken chiarge. I wish the straitemoo state of o ur work illl Burma could be burnt into ther minds of English Churchmen aa it has been burn.t into. mine during those last eight or weeks:. It is a. striking picture of an tinderma.nned portion of the Army of God.

Ma,ry's School, with their large numbM"s of Christian boys and girlS', have no Chrupla.im For at the best of times, they have' only one, and he (Mr. MahoDJ), unfortunately iBI now a,t hoone in.valided. At S. Philip's, where the work is completely iDJ English, the nu.Il:lieTous am valuable congregatt.ion is withoalt a. prieBit .. At Mandalay, the MissioDJ Churoh whioh was built by a fonner Burmese King, and whose Font wa.s pre&ell1t00 by Queen Victoria., is served. by onJy one1 English olea-gyman, Mr. Leader, a.n.d he,, I ha:ve lately leanred, is seriously ill and blame. This is no young Mission. It is Jru)re thanl 2(} years oM. And ye.t we ha:ve only one English priest there, an.dl oooo t01 fill his place when he is ill.

I handed over charge of S. John's CoHege to Mr. Be st, and of the Kemmendine Mission to Mr. Rickard, immediately after their arrival on Nov. 24th, and came up here. I had, how ever, to go down to RangooDJ (S. John's) for the Celebration of the Holy Communion on. Ch.rigt.mas Day, and shall (D.V.) be the:re aga.in for next Sunday.

In Prome too I have continued my work, going out to find men to whom I may speak, sometime.s meet:.in:g with a very promising recep tion, some.times it is quite the re!Verse.
