We would also respectfully request active members in all our Churches, and those especially who may be united with Churches that are small, and have been declining, or are located in isolated and remote parts of the empire, to give prompt information of their public operations. It will be delightful to hear of their success. The Repository will thus be the means of diffusing vigor, and of promoting sympathy, through every extremity of the Connexion.
Several of our ministers and friends whose desire it is that our periodical should be fully adequate to meet the tastes and intellectual wants of the more intelligent members of the Connexion, and who are equal to the task of composing both elegant and instructive essays, &c., have but sparingly accorded the help of their pen; to them, to our promising young ministers and students, and to all who are able to assist us, we earnestly appeal for occasional contributions, that the Connexion may be improved by their attainments, and our humble and unpretending periodical may be enriched from their stores. Variety of style, and taste, and authorship, constitutes one great charm of a periodical.
We have a few esteemed correspondents of the fair sex, to whom our best thanks are due: and, as we entertain a high opinion of the talents and influence of our female friends generally, we most affectionately solicit their generous and valuable assistance. Their countenance will cheer us, their advocacy will greatly promote our circulation, and their contributions will ever be most welcome.
We have only to add, that, encouraged as we have been during the past year, there shall not be wanting on our part any effort to improve the work, oblige our correspondents, and benefit our readers.
Leicester, Dec., 1844.
