The American Tract Society began its 38th Annual Meeting at the Irving Hall in New York City with its president Bishop Charles P. McIlvaine in the chair. The Treasurer reported the free distribution of 47,512,806 pages of religious text, including almost twenty-six million pages to the Army and the Navy, spending $60,000 on work with the military. Contact with African-Americans had also increased during the year. (By John Osborne)
