So diverse are the methods in which the various Missionary Societies compute their annual income, that the mere enumeration of total incomes furnishes an erroneous idea Of the support given by the British Isles to the work of Foreign Missions. The two great Societies of the Church Of England state Simply what has passed through their Offices at home. Other Societies add to this the amount raised in the Mission fields. A third method is in use among the principal Nonconformist Societies, which include not only the receipts in Mission fields, but also grants in aid made to their Mission schools by the Colonial Government. The Scottish Societies, still more elaborate in details, include also the fees received from scholars in their Mission schools. A fifth variety arises from the custom of three or four Societies which include Ireland in their Foreign Mission field. It is evident, then, that before we can arrive at a true statement of British contributions to Foreign Mission work, we must analyse the total incomes ascribed to the various Societies. This is done in the following tables, wherein, as the only point common to all the Societies is the statement of British contributions, the column containing these sums is the only one added up and summarized. The result of the analysis clears away many erroneous ideas. It Shows that the Church Of England voluntarily subscribed during 1871 about 400,000z. Towards Foreign Mission work (m'de Tables I. And II.) such a sum as no other Single Church in the world, we believe, contributes voluntarily to' the same Object. The largest annual income given by the British public to any one Society is that of the Church Missionary Society. In these tables the Societies are arranged in the order to which the amount of support they receive from this country entitles them. In every case, the financial year of the particular Society is adopted.
