advantage of Corresponding Committees, to superintend and conduct the general proceedings of the Society's Mission. They are formed of such Chaplains of the East-India Company, and pious Laymen, as have the interests of the Society warmly at heart, and voluntarily give their time and influence to assist its operations. These Local Committees represent the Society, and act with its authority.
