  The work of the mission extends from Alexandria to Assouan, and entails
a large
expenditure. After deducting all receipts from the natives for congregational
and
school purposes the expense in 1887 was £7,600. New piaces are calling,
some for
schools, others for preachers. The mission would gladly respond did its financial
con-
dition permit. If any one has a desire to aid us in any department of the
work we
would thankfully accept a helping hand. Contributions or donations may be
given
to any one of the missionaries and will be acknowledged in the annual report.
  The mission gratefully acknowledges the generous aid of the American Bible
Society
and the British and Foreign Bible Society in Bible distribution, and also
various
donations from friends and travelers, all of which will appear in detail
in our annual
report.
  By order of the Missionary Association.
