Of tho proceedings and results of
the Lambeth Conference, so far as
they were Intended to be madp pub

That meeting will, I believe, bo here

from all parts of the world, the retire

The principles which they set forth
in their pastoral letter and their reso

with such remaikable unanimity, are
those which can, and which alone can,
efloclually shield the Divine Truth
from rasa and ruinous unbelief on the
one hand, and perhaps, scarcely leaa
ruinous innovation and corruption on
