Punt Road, Windsor, Victoria, Australia,

July 25th, 1884. MR. W. B. BEMBRIDGE

DEAR SIR,- Please accept a small donation of five pounds on behalf of the General Baptist Foreign Missionary Society. We take the General Baptist Magazine, 80 we know how you are "getting on.” We are General Baptists still. After twonty-five years here, we have been shown no better faith, and have soon no "improvement” on G. B. principles, heard from Revs. J. Lowitt and T. Goadby, in Coventry. May hoaven prosper them; and please remember us to them. That the Mission may be abundantly blessed by our Father, is the desire of

Yours very truly,

D. LIGGINS." MR. J. F. HILL.-Letters have been received from Mr. Hill, from Aden, Colombo, and Madras, and it is hoped that he is now safe at Cattack. In the Indian Ocean the sea was rough and stormy, and the almost deserted tables indicated the state of feeling among the passengers. At Colombo the members of the Baptist Mission party, nine in number, were met on board by the Rev. H. A. Lapham, Mr. Ferguson, Mr. and Mrs. D. Ferguson, and Miss Waldock, by whom they were taken on shore, and hospitably entertained from Sunday afternoon until Monday evening. Between Colombo and Madras they were hindered by a strong current and head winds, but by this delay they escaped a terrific cyclone which caused considerable danger and destruction at Madras.

MR. JOHN YOUNG, brother of the Rev. A. H. Young, M.A., embarked on the B.I.S. “Navarino,” for Calcutta, December 10th. He goes by the invitation of the Protestant English School Committee, Cuttack, to take the place vacated by his brother.

MISSION SERVICES. -Since the Association, mission services have been conducted as usual, with similar results, financially, to former years. In deputation work Mr. Pike has rendered efficient help, having been engaged every Lord's-day, and numerous week evenings, since the end of August. Several other ministers have also rendered valuable assistance in advocating the claims of the mission.

CONSUMPTION

AND ALL LUNG DISEASES.

By G. T. CONGREVE, Coombe Lodge, Peckham.

The Nature, Progress, and True Treatment of this Scourge of England.

The following Cases are selected from the TWELFTH SERIES, now

being published.

PHTHISIS – CASE of Miss ANNIE DOLBY, of

PETERBOROUGH. This patient came to Coombe Lodge Feb. 21 of last year. Report on examination:“Phthisis, the apex of the right lung and base of the loft lung diseased, vory feeblo respiration all down the right lung."

The patient's mother and one sister had died of decline. She had been subject herself to a winter cough. For several months she had been worse, amd was losing flesh and strength. All the usual symptoms were present, in addition to which dropsical swellings of the legs and feet bad appeared.

The patient continued to receive medicine and advice by letter for several months, after which she writes me, from Orton Longueville, Peterborough, Juno 4, and says:“I feel in duty bound to write and thank you much for your kind advice. My doctor in Peterborough examined me yesterday and pronounced my lungs free from disease, and said great credit was due to whoever had been attending me; it bad boon most wisely and carefully done. I am seeking to take a situation again. I have been recommending your treatment.-yours gratefully, A. D.”

PHTHISIS-CASE of a LADY, IN IRELAND. In January of last year I received from Miss M. Simmons, of Donaghmore, County Tyrone, a statement of her case, from which the following is an extract :

“ Had had winter cough from childhood, but had been especially ailing since January, 1882. Had lost flesh from the beginning. At present suffering from cough, heavy yellow expectoration, occasionally spitting of blood, flushings, pains in the cbest and side, and soreness under the right breast. Had been attended by two medical men, whose report showed her to be in an exceedingly critical state She was fully advised by letter and medicine sont.

In less than a fortnight the pains were ralioved by the Liniment I prescribed. At this time other special instructions were given in consequence of irritable condition of her stomach.

Letters followod monthly, in which slow and steady improvomont was manifest. Sept. 22, after discontinuing her modicine a short time, she writos :—" It has done me an immense good. I am quito strong now, and have got stout.”

CASE OF Miss FRANKLIN, OF SALISBURY. This patient, anxious about herself in consequence of her father's family having all died of Consumption, came to see me at Coombe Lodge, in April of last year. It was a very critical time. There was the condition of the lungs and system just ripe for the development of positive disease. Cough and expectoration had commenced in the summer of 1883. The latter was jelly-like, and streaked with blood.

In June all the symptoms were better. In July she writes, from Folkestono: -“My cough soems quite gone, and very slight expectoration now. I think I shall not want more medicine, but should like still to write you. I am very glad indeed I came to you."

The patient was advised not to leave of the medicine until every symptom had disappeared (a course that some unwisely take and have to go over the ground again). The hint was observed, and as a consequence she has lately writton me (Sept. 20) from Halo Park, Salisbury : I have had no return of cough or expectoration. I believe that coming to you in time saved me from serious consequences. I am very grateful to you."
