The workers of the Assam Mission have always been so far separated that, though the desirability of a general conference has often been felt, no gathering of the whole Mission has taken place since 1854. It was felt that, at the end of this fiftieth year of our Assam Mission work, all the workers ought to meet, review the past, compare notes on the present, and lay plans for the future. As we did this we felt ourselves benefited, and conceived it desirable to preserve and make accessible the historical matter presented, and to acquaint others with the work here. So we determined to publish the papers presented, together with a brief of the accompanying discussions. As there was no common language in which all the missionaries and our native brethren could unite, the native brethren, all being familiar with the A ssamese, held a separate conference at the same time and place, at which papers on living topics were presented and discussed. The two conferences were united whenever practicable.
