E. Hoste, General Director of the mission; news items from CIM missionaries around China; and miscellaneous CIM financial and statistical data. Also includes CIM newsletter, "Monthly Notes," and report which describe the treacherous raft trip made by thirty-eight missionaries and their families who were withdrawing from the Kansu Province during which King drowned.
