Whatever was done previous to that time reflected any credit upon the Negro the word negro was left out but when his conduct brought discredit then it was inserted the same is almost universally true today because of this and coupled with the fact that before 1805 educa tionally the Negro was unable to re cord his progress by pen and press either at home or abroad made itap pear that he had practically done noth ing for the progress of the world or the cause of Christ but was himself the recipient of all philanthropic ef ort but now with his advancing civi ization intellectual training

of 1878 that Rev a NegroBaptist of America where he had been a slave to sin and man and from both was now set free started upon a journey to carry the gospel to the West India island In the latter part of the same year 1783 two others Rev Moses Ba ker and George Givens followed and be fore the year closed these men had begunthethe Atlantic to our Lord and his- Christ u In the year of 1700 seven years latter while George Washington was serving his first term as President of GeorgHector idlers and the hinderers V Recorder Occasionally the selfconstituted missionary goes around to our churches makes his own reports and makes u collections for himself Some of these men are very insistent upon the collections often almost forcing them selved upon the churches We do not believe in such procedure We believe if there is need for such a man he ought to work under some of our con stituted agencies What is the use of havnig boards if they are not to be trusted with judging the fitness of me and the amount of compensation the ought to have Men who are respon sible to nobody may or may not be doing a good work and mayor not be worthy of the support of th churches We advise churches to be very careful in taking up such men Shall the church continue to give i 10 of one cent for each unreaohed soul in Africa An English officer estimated that a proclamation of the Queen put into the

that long journey for which God be praisedWhat we need is not influence but power with God The apostles in Rome did not have influence enough to keep out of prison but when they were once in prison they had power enough through faith in God to burst the bars asunder and walkout A nuON J What Columbus and VespuciuS did for America in the seventeenth century Livingston and Stanley have done for Africa in the nineteenth A new world is opened to us with an area equal to North America and Europe combined and this world has for eighteen hun dred years been allowed to sit in dark Woos and the shadow of death Think of over 200000000 of human beings camped togather and never having heard of the love of God Has not Af rica at this time the strongest possible claim upon the energies of the

SUBSCRIBE FOR THE HERALD 1 G AFROAMERICAN MISSION HERALD ordained Baptist preachers left till country for the west coast of Contra Africa now Sierra Leone but as I have said before by lack of ability to transmit intelligent information or record it we have but fragmentary knowledge of the results of these pioneer servants of God but like faithfu followers of the cross everywhere of whom it is saidurrhe blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church they died upon the field preparing the way for others to follow Thus we see that Negro Baptists were some years ahead of either English or Americar Baptist missionary effort The first English Baptist Society was The Particular Baptists organized Octo her 179 It was a year later that William Carey the recognized father ofmodern missions put to sea wIth his little band Ibound for Calcutta and not till February 18 1812 that Adoni ram Judson father of American Mis sions with his wife and Mr and Mrs Newell shipped from Salem Massachu setts bound for India To show how nearly paralled history runs let me cite a comparison Wil liam Carey as most of you know was an Englishman a shoemaker perhaps nearer the fact a coblerwho usually labored with an open Bible before him on his work bench While thus working and studing there arose and grew in his heart a burning desire to preach the gospel to the heathen He applied to the English Baptist churches for commission ane means The churches came together and Isosmed a society for preaching the gospel to all nations and in 1793 William Carey the conse crated cobbler as he was called

appeal for help so often I prom ised if the Lord would enable me to get a dollar before Easter Sunday that I would send it to you for Africa In less than two hours after I had made the promise the dollar was given to me r Enclosed I send it to you and am sorr that every mill in it is not a dollar Our people are able and willing to support our missionaries but most of our leaders will not encourage them to do so It looks like the pastors think they are heathen themselves and it will take all the money they can get to chris tianize themselves But it will take more than money to save them from selfishnessYours for Heaven awl Africa The aboveis a s ample of leters com ing to this office from many man orauhed hearts We often get our own feelings hurt by hiding who care noth ing for

July we will print the gifts for mission by states for the ten months of- our conventional year We do ask all to pray for a great blessing upon all our work and that this may indeed prove the best year of our existence The Secretary feels very greatful to The Natchez College of Mississippi the State of his birth and the Guadalupe College of Texaswhere he labored for some yearsfor having counted the work of his unprofitable life of sufficient importance to confer the degree of Doctor of Divinity upon him We live to verve and serve to live praying to be more servicable as we grow older The Board with our entire Baptist Zion feel greatful to Dr C H Parrish of Extein Norton Univ Dr Oaborn of Benedict College and Prof Hayes of Virginia Seminary for scholarships for three young men from

preaching of the gospel the first duty of the churches Baptists in many States are running mad on the subject of edu cation and little by little every thing is dying Where the salvation of souls at home and abroad is made first in importance schools and every other institution claiming support from the chill ches gi ow Let all Bap tists remember missions is the elixir of life to their churches That delegate train to be made up at Atlanta for our National meeting will be tHe biggest thing of its kind you ever saw Will you be there Let every association in their appro priations see that

the con stitution of your Association does not sy a v ord about missions Are you Hard shells or Missionaries fioooo for a suit of clothes for the pastor and 500 for missions is indeed an ugly picture and yet such is the case with one of our churches What will the Lord say Well On August 9th and loth there will be a meeting held in King Williamstown South Africa to organize an African Baptist Association Let our home churches pray this may be a gnat day for our work in Africa The efforts of Baptists black and white to do a real good industrial work in West Africa through Rev C S Morris should succeed Bro Morris hopes to begin his work in Liberia during 1901 Let all our associations and churches hear Bro Morris Pastors should make it a point to get everyone to hear him when he comes
