“That an attempt be made to produce simple literature for the children, including simple exposition and pictures.”

“That suitable literature for Baptists be prepared, stating who they are, what they believe, and their numerical strength.”

“That the Missionary Society assisting in a given territory shall take as part of its work the provision of literature of a propagandist and expository character: Evangelistic, Historical, Apologetic, Ecclesiastical, Devotional, Social, Biographical.”

“That this work be done on the field with the co-operation of the assisting Board of that territory, and that where essential it be subsidised.”

“That a monthly periodical be established, to be named THE BAPTIST WORLD, to be published in America; and that the General Boards of the two Conventions be requested to undertake the organising and the publication.”

N.B—As will be seen by the minutes for Friday afternoon, Washington was recommended by the Conference as the place for publication.
