GEORGE MUELLER OF BRISTOL

Appendix
D. The Scriptural Knowledge Institution For Home And Abroad

I. THE PRINCIPLES OF THE INSTITUTION.

II. THE OBJECTS OF THE INSTITUTION ARE:

We sell Bibles and Testaments to poor persons at reduced price. But while we, in general, think it better that the Scriptures should be sold, and not given altogether gratis, still, in cases of extreme poverty, we think it right to give, without payment, a cheap edition.

We desire to assist those missionaries whose proceedings appear to be most according to the Scriptures.

It is proposed to give such a portion of the amount of the donations to each of the fore-mentioned objects the Lord may direct; but if none of the objects should claim a more particular assistance, to lay out an equal portion upon each; yet so that if any donor desires give for one of the objects exclusively the money shall be appropriated accordingly.
