The reasons which have led to the enlargement of the “ Monthly Paper," and to the publication of the Society's Proceedings under the title of the “Church Missionary Record,” have been already stated in the Circular addressed by the Committee, in the Monthly Paper of October, to the Collectors and Friends of the Society. It is a subject of thankfulness with the Committee, that the mode of publication, which, after mature deliberation, they have been induced to adopt, has been sanctioned by the approval of a large portion of the Society's intelligent and efficient supporters.

The commencement of a publication, exhibiting the Society's proceedings in a distinct and separate form, seems to be a suitable occasion for giving a brief sketch of each Mission, from its commencement to the present year, as the events connected with it are brought under notice. The first of these is the
