Description
 
A single-fold pamphlet announceing a subscription contest for the publication. The contest was for children and aimed at finding new subscribers for the periodical, and was most likely an insert in the August 1896 issue of The Children's Missionary. The single fold insert contains a printed copy of a letter written by Erskine Reed, the Treasure of the Foreign Missions Office at the Presbyterian Church, which entreats children to sign up new subscribers and offers "three prizes to those getting the largest list by Dec. 20 1896, mentions of which you will see in the Sept. issue." The front of the insert features a black and white engraving of a young girl holding flowers set within a circle with a decorative border and the caption "The Regions Beyond". There is an additional larger border with a large growing of lilies. Single fold, double sided. OCLC 5 (May 2020). Measures 6 3/4" x 4" (folded).. Published monthly between 1894 and 1906, the Children's Missionary contained Presbyterian missionary stories from around the word.
