Summary/Abstract: ORIGINAL PREINTED IN GERMAN FRACTURA FONT: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU’LL BE ABLE TO READ (see Introduction.pdf) Published in 1895 by the Central Committee of the Russian Lutheran Church // From the introduction: In the last two years, it is primarily the Estonian and Livonian parish Augmentaioln Funds that have been incorporated into our administration - because they serve similar purposes to our Support Fund. In Reval, two foundations with special provisions were also handed over to the district committee. All in all, this amounts to more than 100,000 rubles, by which the annual bill is now larger. This deceives the eyes of the uninitiated and they will draw false conclusions. It is in keeping with the spirit of the Gospel not to collect treasures or accumulate capital; for we should not place our trust in money, but in the spirit as the true comforter. Hence, the Central Committee doesn’t set out to accumulate treasure. But where it receives foundations for the benefit of the church, it has no right to carry them out in any other way than the founders have ordered in their friendly disposition.
