Excerpt from the report of the General Secretary of the Melanesian Mission (English Committee) in "Report of the Annual Meeting" 16th June, 1938, in The Southern Cross Log, London, Vol. 44, No. 7 (July 1938), page 101:In addition to this, we have had two notable gifts: one in the form of 50,000 sheets of stamps that have been given to the Bishop to be sold at 2/- a sheet. They are very attractive stamps and you are asked to buy these and to use them on your letters or to keep them. I hope you will buy some and remember that every penny will go to the extension of the debt.
