Address to the Bishop from the Christian Indians at the Indian Settlement
THE Bishop of Montreal having kindly proposed to the Committee of the Church Missionary Society to visit their Mission at the Red River, in Prince Rupert's Land, they most thankfully accepted the proposal; and made every arrangement in their power to facilitate his Lordship's arduous but Christian undertaking.
The following Letters, written to the Secretary of the Society, relate the circumstances of the visit. The Bishop has entrusted the Society with the publication of them, and has requested that whatever profits may arise therefrom may be reserved till a fund shall be opened for the endowment of a Bishopric for Prince Rupert's Land.
The Committee of the Church Missionary Society most cordially concur in his Lordship's earnest appeal for the speedy accomplishment of a measure, which, under the Divine blessing, would have a great and beneficial influence upon the operations of the Society in that remote, but interesting, sphere of its labours.
