T HE 81st Annual Meeting of the North India


Christian Tract and Book Society was held at
the Tract Depot, Allahabad, on Wednesday, November
20, 1929, at 5 p. m., with the Rev. Canon B. H. P.
Fisher, President of the Society, in the chair.
After the singing of a hymn, the Rev. J. R.
Chitamber, D. D. read a passage from the Scriptures
and the Right Rev. The Lord Bishop of Lucknow
offered a prayer.
The Secretary presented the Annual Report and
accounts for 1928-29 which were passed, and the
officers and members of the General Committee were
elected.
Dr. Sam Higginbottom delivered the following.
address:-
MR. OHAIRMAN, LADIES AND GBNTLEMEN.
I have listened with a good deal of interest to the Secre-
tary's report and noted with interest the encouraging increase
in the last 25 years. Our Secretary is now entering his 25th
year of service and the Society has reason to thank God for
his devotion &ond industry and tact in furthering its interests.
And yet; in spite of the greatly increased circulation and increas-
ed amount of subscriptions, have we reully done in supporting
the Society all we should have done in view of the tremendous
importance to provide a Ohristian literature in the Vernacular
for the part of India for which we are directly responsible?
Another side of the Society's which I greatly appreciate is the
~a.siness with which I can get good books for myself and for
-( 2
my friends. I frequently bring American guests to the Book
Society. Mr. Oharles R. Crane of New York, lately United
State's Minister to China, found books here in the Depot which
helped him very much in his study of the pilgrim centres of
Asia. I hold in my hand two books purchased here: one is
Moffatt's translation of the New Testament, the other is Francis
Thompson's "The Hound of Heaven." I realise that for many
things no translation can ever supplant the King James'
version. The majesty and music and dignity of its prose, the
rythm of its cadences is unsurpassed in the English language.
The chal'm and music constantly re·echo through one's mind
and heart and soul. But very frequently because of the very
familiarity with our favourite passages, we fail to get the
fullest meaning, and so along with the King James' version
I am glad to have such a translation as Plof, Moffatt has given
us. I will just mention two or three instances wherein it has
been a great stimulant to me. One of the best known passages
and one of the most memorised is the 13th chapter of 1st. Cor.
If Dr. Moffatt had done nothing else than translate this chap-
ter for us, he has laid us under great obligation to him. He
tells us that: "love is never glad when others go wrong."
How frequently we are tempted to say to one from whom we
differ "we told you so" and how frequently one points the finger
of scorn and contempt, and someti!!les with rejoicing, at those
who have made a mess of things. If we truly love we are
never glad when others go wrong. Again "Love is always
eager to believe the best." We are very frequently told that
speaking of the virtues of a man or an organisatiOh has little
value as news. But if, by twisting and wresting, we can put a
bad interpretation and a sinister meaning upon. things, men
will pay attention. But if we truly love, in any number of
possible interpretations, we are always eager to believe the
best,
Again in the second chapter of Revelation we are told of
the wonderful record of the church at Ephesus, its work and
its patience. Yet in that (according to King James' version)
it had lost its first love. I have frequently heard this explain-
~d that after the joy aQ.Q. thrUl anQ. unforgettable e~perience
3
of conversion, of that new and definite relationship to God and
Christ, as we go on in life and have our experiences and dis-
appointments we gradually cool off, the thrill and the glow
disappear, we become humdrum and common-place instead of
being a flame with zeal for the Lord Jesus. Unfortunately,
there is much in the experience of believers to confirm this
interpretation: but Mr. Moffatt gets a little closer to us. After
-all this interpretation of the authorized states things in general
terms. Mr. Moffatt translates "You have given up loving one
another as you did at first." At first, with the thrill and the
glow of the new relationship to God, our hearts expand, we
love everyone of our fellow believers. But as we gained more
experience of them, saw their lives, the things they did, the
things they said, we lost our love for them. Doubts, divisions,
jealously, and hatred came in with the increasing knowledge.
Each one who has been through the experience realises that
something vital has gone out of life. So Dr. Moffatt calls our
attention not to something general but to somethjng very
specific and intimate and personal. Something that getE! me
just where I am and condemns me. One of the most beautiful
things recorded in the New Testament is the first verse of the
13th chapter of the Gospel accOIding to Saint John. It is near
the end of our Lord's earthly ministry. For three years he had
lived with his chosen twelve. Very serious weaknesses and faults
had made themselves evident in their lives. They did not under-
stand Him. They seemed unwilling in many things to follow
Him. He knew that in a few hoars everyone would desert
Him, and some would deny, and one would betray Him with a
kiss, yet knowing all this be loved them, not only in the begin-
ning' when they were not so familiar and so well known, but to
the very .end he loved them.
The other book I hold in my hand is Francis Thompson's
"The Hound of Heaven." Francis Thomps()ll was born in
Preston, and was a student of medicine in Owen's College. Left
all and fled and went to the depths' of degradation and shame;
ragged and unkempt, he came with a manuscript to the publi-
sher. FranciR Thompson, in spite of a good home, splendid educa-
tional opportunitieFl, had dropped through ~ucce8sive stages to


( 4 )
the very depths. In this poem he gives his experience, his
attempts to escape God. He tells us that he attempted to
escape through the passage and efHux of time, that if ever
sufficient time could elapse between him and his sin and way-
wardness, then he could escape the pursuing Ohrist. Again,
he says that he tried to put distance between him and his
sin; here we have an echo of tl: e 139th Psalm. With the
Psalmist he is compelled to confess that God is inescapable.
Agaiu, he tries to escape by finding God in nature. But he has
to confess that "Nature, poor step-dame, cannot slake my
drouth;" In spite of the beauty and glory of nature it is cold
and cruel and impersonal and no sUbstitu'te for the gra(:e of
God. He has had fellowship with men and women and finds
they disappoint him, so he turns to little children sure that
in fellowship with them he will get some s~tisfaction. But
"just as their young eyes grew sudden fair, with dawning
answers there; Their angel plucked them from me by the
hair." He has exhausted every human possibility in time and
space and mankind and nature and yet he finds himself ex-
hausted and broken and stripped. If you will hear with me
I will read the last few lines :-

Now of that long pursuit


Oomes on at hand the bruit;
That Voice is round me like a bursting sea
" And is thy earth so marred,
Shattered in shard on shard?
La, all thingB fly t~ee. for thou fliest Me !
Strange. piteous, futile thing,
Wherefore should any set thee love apart?
Seeing none but I makes much of naught" (He said),
" And human love needs human meriting:
How has thou merited-
Of all manOs clotted clay the dingiest clot?
Alack, thou knowest not
How little worthy of any lava thou art!
Whom wilt thou find to love ignoble thee,
Save Me, save only Me?


( 5
Makes one thing of the Apostle Paul, "the chief of sinners,"
There was a time when I was interested in literature and
history and philosophy but since I have become a farmer grow-
ing cows and cabbages I have little time for this side of life.
r am greatly pleased that I could buy here in Allahabud this
poem. I read it once or twice a week. It is not easy read·
ing. I had to use my large dictionary (purchased from the
Society). r know of no other poem with which to compal'e it,
It goes to the very centre of being and, as few other things
in our literature do, reveals the all-sufficiency of Ohrist, our
Lord and so for this, and because I was able to secure these
two little books in the Society's book -shop here, r am deeply
gratefuL I feel indebted to it. I am firmly resolved to do
more to make it known to those, who like myself, are not
able to keep up with all the latest in literature,
The Ohair man cailed attention to the very
valuable services rendered to the Society by its
Secretary, Rai Bahadur N K. Mukerji, and expressed
the great thankfulness of all who knew him at his
recovery from a recent severe attack of illness.
The meeting closed with the Benediction pro-
nounced by the Chair.

Eighty-First Annual Report
OF THE

North India Christian Tract & Book SocIety'


1st July 1928 to 30th June 1929.

heartedly and enthusiastically for its welfare, and for
the dissemination of the wholesome literature which
we have put forward. The Society cannot too highly
praise the ready and willing manner in which
our friends have taken up new ideas and carrie.d them
through for the benefit of the Lord's work. The
funds of the Society are still low, which causes a
certain amount of anxiety; nevertheless, the Com-
mittee earnestly thanks all t1}.osewho have helped
during the year either by. gifts of money or by
devoting their time to the preparation of healthy·
literature.
The Society'S outlook for future usefulness con-
tinually expands, and only those who -realise the
treme:u.dous intluenge of. c~.ste a,:p.q C"Q.stQIUS of the past
( 8 l
can understand the difficulties that Christians
h~ve to face in presenting the message of the Gospel.
And yet there is an exceedingly cheering and bright
side in .all the phases of the Society's work. That
there is a real and steady -demand throughout our
area for Christian literature will be evident from
the testimonies which are quoted later. Also there
is the encouraging aspect that everywhere the
Gospel is making its power and influence felt in
changing the outlook and ideals of the people, even in
those who have not yet become Christians. On the
other hand, there are some who are determined to
stamp olit all Christian influence and who are
working hard to gain their purpose; but they are
after all the few amongst the many.
The Society needs the prayers, active sympathy,
and support of all those who are interested in its
propaganda, and tenders its heartfelt gratitude to all
who have so loyally helped during the year and, indeed,
without whose assistance it would not be possible for
it to carryon its extensive programme of placing
Ohristian literature, most of which is published at con-
siderable financial loss, in the hands of so many seek-
ers after the truth. The Committee again gratefully
acknowledges the earnest co-operation of one and
I •

all, and rej<?ices in wh'at their support has enabled


it to do.
NEW PUBLICArrIONS.
Thirteen new books, pamphlets and tracts,
making a total of 30,000 copies and 813,000 pages
4av~ been 'publishe<l 4urin-g the' year, The details
( 9
are given in Appendix E. Every year some fresh
boo~s are being added to the list of' the Society's
publications. The list includes two books by that
veteran writer, the late Rev. Dr. W F - Johnson of
the American Presbyterian Mission. Some of his
relatives have by their liberal contributions made
their publication possible by the Society.
The Rev. H. Perfect, Ohurch Missionary So-
ciety, O~ampanagar, Bhagalpur, expresses in the
following words the need for Ohristian literature,
and generously refers to the part which the Tract
Society is playing in this respect :-
" I believe strongly in circulating as much literature as I
can; the book stays and does its silent work when the preach-
er's vuice is no lon~~er heard. It is a rule here that every
preacher when he goes out to work should have with him his
supply of books and endeavour to sell.
"Some of the men here have become so used to this idea of
always having books with them that they never seem to go
out without some on a train journey; if they go away for holi-
day, they have their books with them somewhere or other.
"That some of the books are not read is possible, but I
t-hink there is far less risk of this when books are sold than
when they are given away; the mere fact of having paid some-
thing makes the book of some- value to the purchaser, and I
think oftgn prevents its being destroyed or thrown away, when
if free it might be.
"The work done by books must, to a great extent, be hidden
work, possibly in many cases really unperceived by the man
in whose heart the work is going on, but I am certain that
work is being done; and when India turns to God no small share
in that work will have been the silent ministry of the book.
"On the other side of your work there is the production of
literature for our Ohristian workers. It is not possible to over-
~~timate the im:portance of tbis wo.rk at present wheu the futufQ
( 10 )
of the Church in this land may depend on the quality of the
men we can train now as teachers and leaders. For this we are
to a large extent dependent upon the Tract Society, and ·only
those who have had the training of these workers can really
understand what is owing to the Socie ty for the help it has
given in this work."

REPRINTS.
Thirty-three of the old books and, tracts have
been reprinted, as shown in Appendi~ F, the total
amounting to 217,000 copies and 6,528,000 pages.
Bhajan Sangrah has reached the 57th edition. Two
editions of Kaliyug Katha had to be issued during
the year, the total number of copies being 40,000.
The following observations made by the Rev.
J. Jardine, Baptist Mission, Palwal, South Punjab,
will be of interest : -
"I am very grateful for the supplies of literature received
from your Society during the past few years. Such literature
must playa very important part in the evangelisation of any
district and I am confident that in the near future there will
be an in-gathering from the seed sown broadcast in our villages
through your little books. Bhajan Sangrah is probably the
'Best Seller' of any books in our district with Kaliyug Katha
as a good second."

An experiment was made with the issue of


some of these old favourities in Urdu, which proved
quite a success, and the Committee now feels justi-
fied in expanding the list.
Miss M. Crossley, Church Missionary Society,
Mandla, Central Provinces, gives the following
incident of how a night-watchman helped in the
Clr<;qlatjo:q of li.ter~t~re ;-
( il )
"Our night-wa.tchman, pan,wala, who was himself a convert
fl'om Hinduism about 17 years ago, has been the one who has
been responsible for the selling of the literature I got from you as
well as Gospels from the Bible Society. He i~ a very zealous volun-
tary colporteur. He calls himself' God's Ooolie' and visits the
big bazaars and melas, and up-to-date this year he has sold 137
Gospels and 371 Bhajans and Tracts supplied by you and has
distributed a great number of the frea tracts you so kindly
supply. I have known him to walk to a village 12 miles away
in order to sell the literature and come back in the evening.
He refuses to receive any remunera.tion beyond his train fare, if
he happens to go down the line. He is an instance of 'the
things of naught' which God can use. He is just a simple
illiterate man, but keen to get others to know the truth.
"I do appreciate very much indeed the work of youI' Society
and marvel sometimes that you can produce literature so well
got up at such a very low price, and that of course is a great
help in selling. I think the one pice and two pice books which
illustrate as well as teach some of our Lord's Parables are won-
derfully cheap."

FOUR-PAGE HANDBILLS-HINDI.
For over 40 years the Society has ·had the privi-
lege of issuing 12 leaflets every year, conveying the
Gospel Message. In the year under report 305,000
copies, making a total of 1,220,000 pages, were
issued. These are scattered far and wide like seeds;
it is not for us to know how they will be used by God
for His work.

FOUR-PAGE HANDBILLS-P.ERSIAN URDU.


The Committee has yielded to the pressing
demand for the publication, in Urdu, of leaflets simi-
lar to those in Hindi for the benefit of the Urdu
speaking people. In order to meet this need an
;( 12 J
edition of 10,000 copies of the leaflet is printed
monthly.
Both the Hindi and Urdu leaflets are ,supplied
,at a nominal price of 2 annas per 100 copies, the
actual cost of the Hindi being Rs. 2-4 per 1,000
copies and of the UI;du Rs. 3-4 per 1,000 copies.
The Rev. M. E. Parrish, Free-will Baptist
Mission, Hazaribagh, 'Bihar, gives the following
interesting testimony to the simple manner in which
sound Biblical teaching is presented through the
Society's literature:-
-"We have had great success in the sale and general distri-
bution of the literature which we have ordered from your Society.
The people seem to grasp the literature and like it. There
are perhaps many reasons for this which, or some of which, I
believe to be due to the sound Biblical teaching and the simpli-
city with which it is presented in the literature which i6J pub-
lished by your presq, I have only been in India approximately
three years and have ordered from your press that which was
available and haye found th6re is none bett~r, Further, I wish
to highly recommend your .Society to others who wish for good
literature and 'prompt service in all departments."

. CIRCULATION .A:ND PUBLICATION


F·OR THE YEAR.

The circulation reached a total of 737,871 copies


as against 683,976, and the publications amounted
to 612,000 copies' and 8,811,000 pages, as against
466,000 copies and 7, 720,000 pages in the previous
yea'r. The Committee is grateful to the large
number of missionaries and other workers who make
possible such asatisfaetory -output 'by helping in -the
( 13 )

production and circulation of the Society's li,tera-


ture. It is not possible to employ colporteurs, hence
the Society is entirely dependent on friends to dis-
seminate its books, tracts and handbills to those for
w hom they are in tended.
The increase in publication is most encourag·
ing. Here again th~ Society is indebted to those
auth<;>l"s who in addition to bearing the heavy burdell
of their own missionary duties have found time to
write bOGks for it. Such contributions are a most
valuable asset to the 'Y"or k of the Society. •
Miss D. Beach, American Mission, Suitanpur,
relates how a tubercular patient was impressed hy
the literature published by the Society : -
" Although many books were sold by us in Naini Tal last
year, over 2,000, and this year about 1,180 in Almora, I can give
only one instance of wh~ch I personally know: a T.B. patient
said 'I have read all the Hindi Shastras and other books, etc.,
but I found them all vanity until I read the Gospel telling of
Jesus, the True Saviour, and I believe there is no other way.'
Just before he passed away we again went to see him: at that
time he said 'Last night Jesus appeared to me and He looked
just like He does in your picture rolls'. A few days later he
passed away."
The Rev. J. T. Sidey of the Baptist Mission,
Gaya, adds valuable testimony to the splendid work
which is being carried on in out-of-the-way places
by the distribution and sale of the Society'S tracts:-
"I write to say that it would be very difficult to carryon
colportage work without your valuable tracts. Last year
(ending in Sept.) we sold about 8,000, in 11 months, This call
only be likened to broadcasting. Plac~s must be reached in
this way of which we have no knowledge. And it always is our
14 )
hope, that as men take these books to ·their homes they will
discover the meaning wrapped up in the various stories.
"Our work is largely done at melas. These people come
from distant homes, and in this way the tracts are going forth
in all directions.
"Little children really buy the study books with great
curiosity and go oft' with them, running and laughing.
"Men listen to the recital of the 'Kaljug Katha' and take
it away hidden in a pocket.
"Others lisiten to the Bhajan and then·buy.
"Hope, of course. is pinned on what lies hidden away in all
these books. It is potent truth. Good success to your work"
The Society supplied largequantit.ies of handbills
and other literature f~r sale and distribution at the
Congress Exhibition which was held in Calcutta in
1928. Mr. Watkins R. Roberts, Nortb East India
General Missibn, gives the following account of how
they were used:-
"We circulated about 120,000 Portionettes, Tracts, Gospels,
and New Testaments during the Exhibition, and were greatly
encouraged by the reception given to the message of Salvation
by all classes. We were able to get some portion of the \Vord
into hundreds of Indian homes through the women, who came
in large crowds on the special days allotted for them.
"We met very few Mohammedans, and the major portion of
our literature was circulated among Bengali Hindus (about
80,000). Other languages circulated included Hindi, Urdu,
Gurmukhi, Oriya, Tamil, Talugu, English etc. We came in
contact wit~ a large number of English-speaking visitors who
had been trained at Mission Schools and Oolleges in different
parts of India, and with many who were deeply interested in the
message of the Gospel. The following extracts from a paragraph
entitled 'Some Hard Facts to Face' which appears in the Moody
lfontkly for April may interest you. It is an extract from a
letter by a member of ou~ Mission who passed through Oalcutta.
at the time, alld reads thus :-'On Ohristmas night we visited
( 15 )
the " •. Exhibition, in which our Society shared a stall with the
British and Foreign Bible Society for the distribution of evan-
gelicalliterature. I was struck with the insistent thirst for
knowledge Axhibited by some of the many who pressed around
our stall. Mr. Coleman (our Secretary in America) entered into
couversation with a Mathematical Professor (Hinct.u) who was
full of all the sophistries of modernistic teaching. He was a
clear conversationalist with a carnal mind, trained and keen to
withstand every convincing thrust of the spirit of Truth, and
declared his profound dissatisfaction with the revelation of God
in Jesus Christ. He had no use for either Christianity or the
Hindu faith of his fathers. Neither the way of the Cross nor
the way of tradition had any at1raction for him. Rather
would he m.ake a way for himself along the quaking bog of
agnosticism.

.FINANCE.

The summary of the Cash Account for the


year appears as Appendix B. In Appendix C is
given a list of the missionary societies represented
on the General Committee, with their contributions.
Appendix A deals with the Building Fund which now
shows a credit balance of Rs. 1,099-12-0. The rent
received from a part of the buildi:lg is being put
aside to meet any large expenditure which may
have to be incurred in carrying out expensive repairs
to the property. It should be remembered that our
buildings are all very old and sooner or later the So-
ciety will be called upon to spend a large amount
on their maintenance.
The Religious Tract Society, London, again
helped us with a grant of £255 in cash and £45 in
publications, which is most gratefully acknowledged.
The interest which the Parent Society takes in the
( 16 )

work ·of its Auxiliary is most gratifying. But for


its help it would not have been possible for us
to arrange for the output of such a large number of
books.
BIBLE DICTIONARY.
The Committee is glad to be able to report that
steady progress is being maintained in the prepara-
tion of the English basic manuscript. In the absence
of the Rev. J.O. Manry, M A., Ph.D., on furlough, the
Rav. Canon B. H. P Fisher, M.A., President of the
Society, is kindly looking after the work. A good
deal of work has been done and it is hoped that the
Hindi translation will be ayailable in a couple of
years.
In the last Report reference was made to the
opening of a specil~.l fund for the publication of the
Hindi Bible Dictionary. The Committee is glad to
1e able to report that through the kind help of our
old friend, Mrs. J. S. Mackay, Rs. 3,578 have been
received up to the close of the year. Mrs. Mackay
interested some of her friends in Canada in this
project and was able to collect 800 dollars. The in-
terest whieh Mrs. Mackay takes in the Tract Society
is well known. From time to time she has helped
us with large contributions, many of which were
shown as anonymous. The Committee is grateful
for the support which she received from kind
friends and trusts that ·others will COlne forward to
supplement Mrs. Mackay's liberal contributions. We
may remark that the expenses for publishing the
Bible Dictionary will be considerable.
( 17 )
The N ati.onal Christian Council is also greatly
interested in this book. Last year, through its
Indian Literature Fund, it contributed Rs. 500 to·
wards preliminary expenses. This meets the salary
of .a clerk who has been allotted to the Rev. Dr.
Yohan Masih, Editor of' the Hindi version. Dr.
Yohan Masih, in addition to translating the articles
in Hindi, is giving considerable help in the prepar-
ation of original manuscripts.
The National Chr!stian Council again assisted
us with Hs. 480 which enabled us to employ two
helpers for literary work. The Society is thankful
for this help.
SUBSCRIPTIONS AND DONATIONS.
During the year under report Rs. 2,281-7-3 was
received from churches and Rs. 1,662-0-0 from in-
dividuals. The Committee wishes to express its
indebtedness to the pastors of the various churches
and to kind friends of' the Society at several stations
for the splendid help rendered by circulating the
Society's appeal for perso~al contributions. But for
their generous co-operation it would not have been
possible for the Society to present such a satis-
factory report under this head.
In sending a contribution of Rs. 15 Miss E. K.
Beach, American Mission, Sultanpur, writes as
follows :-
"This off'ering is especially for the Pictorial Tracts w hic!!. I
have received from time to time. Have once before sent a
small ofiering of Rs. 5. Hope you can supply us with the last
order also, as soon as possible. I feel they are valuable
because they cause sales of books."
18 )
Op.r financial year ends on the 30th June, but.
some contributions were received after that date.
In order that they may be .speedily acknowledged we
have included in Appendix E a list showing all such
contributions. These will naturally appear in the
Cas'h Statement for next year. It is hoped that the
collectors and contributors will accept this pl'O-
visiona~ acknowledgement for the present. We are
thankful to them for their kind help.
The Committee further a~knowledges the contri-
bution of 500 dollars, equivalent to Rs. 1,382-~-O, from
the Rev. and Mrs. F. 'E. Goetsch. This amouut was
received after the close of the year's account. These
good friends still maintain a keen inte.rest in the work
of the Tract Society, after their departure from
India. Their help now is much greater than what
it was when they were resident in India. It is
hoped that others will, follow their noble example in
this respect.
CHANGE IN THE CONSTITUTION.
,The Society's constitution allowed direct repre-
sentation to two representatives of' missionary
societies contributing at least Rs. 50 annually. But
no such arrangement existed in j'espect of the
chuJ.lches, their representative being elected at the
Annual Meeting of the Society. It was felt,
however, by many that the time had come when
it should be 'made possible for churches also
to have 'direct representation as a matter of .}ight.
the ~onstitu.tion. has, therefore" been ,changed
which will now make 'it pos.sible for ,all~hurche·s
( 19
contributing at least Rs. 25 to have a represen-
tative on the General Committee. This and some
other minor changes have been made in the revised
constitution wh:ich is appended to the Report.
We conclude our report with a note of hope ar;;
we began it with one of gratitude. That hope is
that the work which the Holy Spirit is now so un-
mistakably doing in our country may bear rapid
fruit. There is no doubt that thinking India now
looks· upon Jesus Christ as it never did before. One
Hindu gentleman, himself a Brahmin, once confessed
to one of our members that the on.ly hope of India
lies in the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and we recan the
nlemorable words of Kishub Chander Sen who once said
'~None but Jesus, none but Jesus, is worthy of wear-
ing this jewel, India, in His crown." But this new
attitude also constitutes a challenge to the Church
in Indi~ to do all it can to present a true picture of
the Master. We are attempting this to the {lxtent
that the Ohurch is helping us, but there is no doubt
that there is a great deal more which needs to be
done. Will the Church respond?
