+ EXTRACT FROM MR. JUDSON'S LETTER TO THE BOARD.
Maulmein, May 31, 1828. " Rev. and dear Sir,
“When I left America, I brought with me a considerable sum of money, the avails of my own earnings and the gifts of my relatives and personal friends. This money has been accumulating at interest, for many years, under the management of a kind friend to the mission, and occasionally receiving accessions from other quarters, particularly at the close of the late war, until it amounts to 12,000 Rupees. I now beg leave to present it to the Board, or rather to Him, “who loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood.” I am taking measures to have the money paid to the Agent of the Board ; and the payment will, I trust, be effected by the end of this year.”
