And that the ratio of Collectors, when compared with the population, is precisely similar. This furnishes a conclusive evidence, that it is only necessary to increase the number of those valuable Agents, in order to extend an interest in the cause, and diffuse more widely the advantages and blessings of the system.

SECTION III.

ON LADIES' BIBLE ASSOCIATIONS.

It has been observed, that the Parent Institution assumes no control over the internal arrangements of Local Societies; and that the recognition and strict observance of its fundamental principle, alone, constitutes the bond of union. But the advantages of one uniform mode of proceeding in all societies of the same designation, are evident: and among them, no one is more important than the security which is thus afforded, that the integrity of this principle will be maintained throughout every part of the system.

1. The following are the RULES recommended by the Committee of the Parent Society for adoption by Ladies' Bible Associations:

I. That we form ourselves into an Association, in connexion with the British and Foreign Bible Society, through the medium of the Auxiliary

Rules recommended to Ladies' Bible Associations.-Observations.

[or Branch] Bible Society, for the purpose of contributing towards the circulation of the holy scriptures "without note or comment," particularly in and its vicinity; and that this Association be denominated Ladies' Bible Association."

"The

II. That all persons, subscribing the sum of one penny, or upwards, per week, or making a donation of one guinea or upwards, at one time, shall be members of this Association.

III. That the business of this Association shall be conducted by a Committee, to be chosen annually, consisting of a Treasurer, Secretaries, and not less than other members, eligible for re-election, and under the patronage of such other honorary members as the Society or Committee shall select and obtain.

IV. That the Committee meet once a month, or oftener, if necessary, on a day to be fixed by themselves; and that members be empowered

to act.

V. That, for the purpose of soliciting and collecting donations and subscriptions, the Committee divide this neighbourhood into districts, and appoint one or more collectors from among themselves to each district; and that these contributions be paid to the Treasurer at the Monthly Committee Meetings.

VI. That the Committee make it their business to inquire, Whether any families or individuals, residing within the limits of this Association, are in want of Bibles or Testaments, and unable to procure them: in which case it shall be the duty of the Committee to supply them therewith, at prime cost, or reduced prices, according to their circumstances.

VII. That the funds of this Association, or so much thereof as the Committee shall direct, whether arising from subscriptions, donations, or the sale of Bibles and Testaments, shall, from time to time, be expended in the purchase of Bibles and Testaments at prime cost, to be sold to the poor in the neighbourhood, as before directed; and that any surplus which may arise, be remitted, at the discretion of the Committee, to the Auxiliary [or Branch] Bible Society, in aid of the general purposes of the British and Foreign Bible Society.

VIII. That a General Meeting of the subscribers and friends of the Association be held on such day as shall be fixed on by the Committee in each year, at o'clock; when the accounts (as audited by the Committee) shall be presented, the proceedings of the past year reported, and a Treasurer, Secretaries, and Committee, chosen for the ensuing year. IX. That a copy of these Rules, signed by the Secretaries, be transmitted to the Committee of the Auxiliary [or Branch] Bible Society; with a request, that they will grant permission to lay out the funds of this Association in purchasing, at the depository of the said society, Bibles and Testaments at the cost prices,

2. OBSERVATIONS.

The following remarks, in addition to those submitted in Chapter III. Section II. may tend to elucidate the practical operation of these Rules:

1. When the Association is formed in connexion with a Ladies' Branch Society, the introduction to the first Rule should be thus expressed :-"That we form ourselves into an Association in con
