From receipts for the year 1836, in each of the British islands, it appears that the contributions from Antigua and Bermuda, the only two islands which adopted entire emancipation, are about double those from any other two islands. These associations are connected with the Wesleyan mission, and have been in existence since 1820. Their object is to raise funds for the parent society in England.

B., who was equally free, we obtained information on a great variety of points, which we reserve for the different heads to which they appropriately belong. From Millar's we proceeded to Fitch's Creek Estate, where we had been invited to dine by the intelligent manager, Mr. H. Armstrong. We three met several Wesleyan missionaries. Mr. A. is himself a local preacher in the Wesleyan connection.

At the east end of Eustace Road is a small brick Wesleyan chapel, hidden away in a corner, which deserves a word of mention, as it is a German chapel and the services are in that language. The Fulham Congregational Church in Dawes Road is a large building of red brick with stone facings, opened on April 5, 1887.

She flew to religion as a refuge. There was no belief in her religion, no faith, no creed, no mystical transports, but only fear, and shame, and contrition. It was fervent enough, nevertheless.
