The officers of the Board have been reinforced by the addition of the Rev. William C. Roberts, D.D., LL.D., for five years an efficient and successful Secretary of the Board, who left it five years ago for the Presidency of Lake Forest University, and has just resumed the post of Corresponding Secretary. Dr. Robert's return to the Board means a most gracious relief to the other members of the executive force, pressed beyond measure by the rapid extension of the work, and should be matter of congratulation to the entire Church.
