Excerpt: ...bee-hives, with inhabitants. There are no such throngs now, but there are still people enough to call forth the most and the best that we can do for them. A large number of Chinese have here been turned from idol-worship to the love of Jesus. I have at hand no means of scanning the long roll--reaching up to many hundreds--of those who have for longer or shorter periods been brought here to know something of Christ. And the frequent change of teachers has rendered impossible any adequate statement of results. Among those whom I specially remember are three Yongs: One, Yong Jim, an unusually well-educated man who, after being a missionary helper in several of our fields, returned to China, and has done gospel-work there in connection with the American Board; another, Yong Kay, was a delegate from California pg 197 to the great convention of the Y. P. S. C. E. in Boston, and made several addresses there, which were well received. He is now preaching the Word in that city. Yet another of the same family has been for several years a leader in Christian work among the Chinese in New York. The Christians in California and elsewhere belonging to this family have a little missionary work of their own among their relatives in China in addition to what they do through our Chinese Missionary Society. The work at Oroville is now in excellent hands. We have a good helper--intelligent, wise, steadfast--who almost wholly supports himself, drawing but five dollars per month from our treasury, and giving back a goodly portion of this. The teachers are faithful and earnest, and I rejoice to add that for several years our church in that town has recognized its responsibility for this work, has given it the right hand of fellowship, and has aided it with generous gifts.
