ADVERTISEMENT.

This specimen-fasciculus having been printed at the expense and the pecuniary risk of the Benares printer and publisher, who will reap the profits if there be any, of the sale of it, I am moved by no personally pecuniary interest in mentioning to the professing friends of missions in India, that they ought to (-as they will, if “ worth their salt”,-) purchase this gift of mine (Acts III, 6) and 'sow it broadcast” among the missionaries, for the edification of these and the indemnification of the printing office.

J. R. B.
