MISSIONARY ENVELOPES.

----------

These are now in stock in large quantity. Every letter you send through the mail may be a more or less potent messenger of the truth, even on its outside, by the use of these envelopes. They catch the attention not only of those to whom they are addressed, but postmen and others have an opportunity, and often the curiosity, to read their message of peace,--the gospel in a condensed form. Price, 25c per hundred, postpaid.

MISSIONARY LETTER PAPER.

----------

A new lot of the blue bond letter paper is also ready. Size 8-1/2 x 11 inches, with Scriptural heading, and WATCH TOWER publications notices on back. Price, 25c per lb., postage extra, 15c. A pound contains about 100 sheets.

VOLUNTEER AMMUNITION FOR 1903.

----------

We are preparing two million tracts for this year's work: paper is already ordered and we will be ready to ship the tracts we hope in April. Let the captains get ready the forces and notify us during March the amounts they will be able to use advantageously.

CONCERNING CORRESPONDENCE.

----------

During the Editor's absence in Europe our friends will remember that he cannot be reached by correspondence, and that matters intended for his special consideration should be deferred until his return.

In general, communications concerning business, subscriptions, orders, Tract Fund remittances, Pilgrim visits, etc., should be sent to "Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society," and letters concerning doctrinal and personal matters to the Editor.

THE EMPHATIC DIAGLOTT.

----------

Many friends have overlooked our previous announcement that our stock of this work is entirely exhausted, and orders are continuing to pour in. We are entering these in order of receipt, and all will be filled in rotation when the new editions are ready. We hope to have both leather and cloth editions on hand in about eight weeks.

ABOUT PILGRIM VISITS.

----------

Our friends are again reminded that routes for Pilgrims are made up months ahead, and that we cannot insert places after announcements have been made. If you desire a visit, answer the questions of Dec. 15 TOWER (or so many as you can) and send us word promptly.
