ny pennies collected from very poor people into the treasury at New York. Besides organizing a cent society here an appeal was sent to other American Missionary Association churches and schools among the colored people asking that similar societies be organized. A number of them acted upon the suggestion, some of them sending their money here to be forwarded by the treasurer of our society to the New York office, and others sending it direct.

The members of these societies are asked to give one cent daily, weekly, or monthly, according to each one's financial ability. The object is to give every colored man, woman and child who can be reached by these societies an opportunity to do something for the American Missionary Association, which has done, and is doing, so much for them.

As the new school year begins we renew our efforts in the society here, and shall try to stimulate others in the hope that much more may be done this year than was done last year in this humble way for the great cause.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology.

Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
