APPENDIX C.

To the Honourable ROBERT BOYLE, Esq:

Governour, And to the Company, for the Propagation of The Gospel to the Indians in New England, and Parts adjacent in America.

HONOURABLE SRS, — There are more than thirty years passed since the Charitable and Pious Collections were made throughout the Kingdom of England, for the Propagation of the Gospel to the Indians, Natives of His MAJESTIES Territories in America, and near the same time: since by His late MAJESTIES favour of ever blessed Memory, the Affair was erected into an Honourable Corporation by Charter under the Broad Seal of England ; in all . which time our selves and those that were before us, that have been Your Stewards, and managed Your Trust here, are witnesses of Your earnest and sincere endeavours, that that good Work might prosper and flourish, not only by the good management of the Estate committed to

You, but by Your own Charitable and Honour-
able Additions thereto; whereof this second
Edition of the HOLY BIBLE in their own
Language, much corrected and amended, we
hope will be an everlasting witness ; for where-
soever this Gospel shall be Preached, this also
that you have done, shall be spoken of for a
Memorial of you; and as it hath, so it shall be
our studious desire and endeavour, that the
success amongst the Indians here, in reducing
them into a civil and holy life, may in some
measure answer the great and necessary Ex-
pences thereabouts: And our humble Prayer to
Almighty God, that You may have the glorious
Reward of your Service, both in this and in a
better World.
We are Your Honours most Humble and
Faithful Servants,

WILLIAM STOUGHTON.
