For 121 years—since 1809—the New York Bible Society has been active giving the Gospel to those who sorely need its guidance and comfort—blind folk too poor to buy an expensive raised-type Bible —forgotten sick people in the public wards of hos pitals—forlorn men and women in prisons—poverty- stricken families in the great slums—bewildered im migrants in a vast city and country—lonely sailors far from home and friends. Last year the Society distributed almost a million Bibles, Testaments and Bible portions. Great as its work has been, never has the Society had enough funds to meet all of its opportunities for doing good. Always it has been necessary to curtail and limit its activities in providing the Scriptures for those in need o f solace, inspiration and guidance.
