THE total numbers of 1828 are believed to be considerably short of the truth, as the year past has been distinguished by great displays of divine power and grace in the conversion of
sinners. The materials for making up the account, were indeed more ample than the last year's, but still there was a great deficiency. The Minutes of some Associations have never been for-
warded, and in other instances the total of 1825, 1826, or 1827, have from necessity been inserted. The Corresponding Secretary of each Association is requested to forward a copy of the
Minutes to the Rey. Noah Davis, Agent of the Tract Society, at Philadelphia, that the annual tables published in future may be accurately stated from the last printed Minutes.
