[To THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR:) SIR —The enclosed appeal and report may interest you in connection with the paragraph on p. 363 in the Spectator of February 24th, as showing what one agency has tried to do for the children. Should any of your friends wish to con- tribute, it would probably be best to remit direct to Watson

Grace, secretary Friends' Foreign Mission Association, 15 Devonshire Street, Bishopsgate Without, London, E.0 , though any money sent to the York address given below would be forwarded.—It to, Sir, &a,

[The circular enclosed sets forth that the Society of Friends have been collecting since November, and now make their appeal public. They have their own missionaries, with previous experience of famine relief, already at work on the spot. They are thus able to devote all subscriptions to relief without any dedoctions for expenses. Should enough money be received, they will mate grants to other com- petent agencies. If any Churches have not got their own organisation, the Friends will be glad to forward and administer funds for them, as also any subscriptions received through banks, shops, factories, and refreshment-rooms.— ED. Spectator.]
