chusetts and of New England. To such let me say, This Congregational House is not for Boston, though it is to be erected in Boston; nor for Massachusetts. It is for the denomination it represents; nay, for the world. Jerusalem belongs to CHRISTENDOM. So this garner of all that is precious, both old and new, pertaining to Congregational principles, character, and work, just so far as the most patient and diligent research can secure them, shall be for the entire brotherhood of our churches everywhere. Every State and section should, therefore, be represented in it. And let none keep back what the heart prompts as an offering, though it must needs be small. From the far West, and the far East, from the cold North, and, it may be, the colder South, we invite and welcome any gifts, be they great or small.

Books and pamphlets, packed away in those closets, and in barrels or boxes, in the attic, or useless in the drawers of the secretary or book-case, will find a very fitting and useful place very quickly after they reach our table. I find them not merely useless, but often an incumbrance in this and that place, where I happen to be; and have added much to our library, and relieved the kind ladies of further care by taking them here. Will those who have such, BOX, OR BUndle, OR BARREL THEM, and send them as below, by express, at my charge? Do not fear sending what will be useless here. It is scarcely possible. Let them come to
