The British and Foreign Bible Society, often known in England and Wales as simply as the Bible society, is a non-denominational Christian charity that exists to make the Bible available throughout the world. The Society was formed on 4 March 1804. Here are printed in two columns extracts of reports and correspondence from sympathizers and affiliated organisations from around the world. These include a transcript of a letter from Bermuda informing the 'Parent Society' of the formation of a 'Bible Society of the Bermuda Islands' and requesting bibles for distribution among the island's inhabitants.
