p.11REPORT.

We, the committee of theLadies’ Bible Association for Cromer and its neighbourhood,consider it our duty to lay before our subscribers, the prefixedstatement of the condition of our charge; and in doing so, wethink it may be expedient to accompany the same with someextracts from the slight records which we have kept of ourproceedings, since Nov. 1827, when our friend, Mr. J. J. Gurney,now on a christian mission in America, first called ustogether.

We may premise that in our note of the first year, (1828,) wefind the need of the society indicated by the fact, that in oneoutlying district, a poor woman had lately given three shillingsfor the tattered remains of a bible.  The announcement ofthe formation of our association, and of the facility which itafforded for obtaining bibles, was received with pleasurethroughout the neighbourhood.  Many parents were desirous toavail themselves of the opportunity of providing bibles for theirchildren, and even some solitary old couples who could not readthemselves subscribed, that they might have a bible in the housefor their neighbours to read to them.

The young people were generally found eager tosubscribe.  All the girls (but one) of one school gave theirnames as soon as the plan was proposed to them, and severalhaving supplied themselves with bibles, continue as freesubscribers, and take much p. 12interest in reading the monthlyextracts.  It was pleasant too, to see the desire ofchildren in various places, to devise a way to earn their ownsubscriptions.  One little girl, who had a hen, set asidethe first chickens for the payment of hers, and an errand boyvolunteered to run some additional miles, to obtain a few pencefor his.

Some interesting particulars of the effect of passages of theword of God upon individuals, have occasionally been related inconversation with the collectors.  On one of these applyingto a young man, the latter said, that though he had a bible, hewould willingly subscribe five shillings for another, (as a giftwe suppose, to some friend,) and he proceeded to say, that whenvery young he was very thoughtless, and, for a length of time,had feared neither God nor man.  Being alone one day in hisfather’s house, he saw a bible lying on a window seat; heopened it in a careless manner, and his eye was caught by a verseof awful denunciation against sinners.  He could not bearit, and flung the bible into a corner of the room, and wentout.  The words still haunted him, and, on his return aftersome time, seeing the bible still on the floor, he picked it up,and opening it again, observed a passage containing, as he said,“a promise, a blessed invitation.”  Hisattention was happily attracted, he read on, and from that time,formed a habit of reading the scriptures, which has proved, as hethankfully acknowledged, a blessing to his soul.

We may now mention an instance of the utility of reading thebible freely and undauntedly to others.  A gentleman, whohad been in the practice of reading in the cottages, went intoone for this purpose on the evening of a fair held in theneighbourhood.  He found the old woman on whom he had calledgone to bed,
