Excerpt from Annual Report of the American Presbyterian Mission at Lahore for the Year 1887
The Sunday School has been in charge of Mr. Velte. The number of scholars in attendance has been somewhat lessened this year, chieﬂy by removals to other places. But we find encouragement in the regular attendance and close attention of the children. Doubtless many of the lessons take good hold upon their impressible minds, and the out come, in their own lives and in their future inﬂuence on society, will under God, be a blessed one. There is a touch ing instance of this in the case of one of these little ones, a little fellow of 5 years, who being much interested in Bible stories innocently beguiles his great grandfather, a sceptic and unbeliever, into going over and over the history of those ancient men of God who all were heroes of faith.
The people of the station kindly contributed the liberal sum of Rs. 378 towards last year's Christmas treat, at which Mr. Mackworth Young presided, and presented the gifts and prizes to the children in the presence of a large assembly. The contributions of the Sunday School during the year amounted to Rs. 40, of which Rs. 20 was voted to the gene ral work of the Mission and Rs. 20 to the Mission College.
