Excerpt from The Baptist Missionary Magazine, 1902, Vol. 82
After ninety-eight years of history its monthly visits are welcomed by more readers than ever before. It is to the hundreds Of thousands of Baptists who never read it, who never even see it, that we would have it introduced. If we had unlimited funds at our disposal, or if the Magazine were a purely business enterprise, it could be advertised to the notice Of every non-subscriber. We have no Magazine capital, however, and it is not published for the purpose Of making money, but as the organ Of the Missionary Union to inform Baptists as to the progress Of their great work abroad, and to instruct them in the vital principles of missionary endeavor. The problem of introduction lies largely, if not primarily, with the pastor and other leaders in our churches. The truth Of this statement has been demonstrated to our satisfaction. To encourage and help the pastor and his helpers to introduce the Magazine we are prepared to make certain definite propositions. We agree, on our part, to prepare and issue as good a missionary periodical as is published anywhere in the world and at a very low price, at a price less than the cost of publication. We agree to communicate to our readers, monthly, the very latest news and the most important information regarding our missions and our missionaries. We agree to do this in the best style of the typographers' art and to illustrate with the latest and best photographs we can secure. We agree to continue to donate a copy Of the Magazine to the pastor Of every church which con tributes anything to the treasury Of the Missionary Union, provided he send us his name and address. We agree to give liberal premium Offers to individuals or churches, as further inducements for the formation Of clubs.
