THE NEW TESTAMENT FOR THE SHAH. When the Shah visited England in 1873 he Was presented with a handsome copy of the Bible in Persian by the British and Foreign Bible Society, and no fewer than eighty-six Persian New Testaments were distributed among the members of his suite. The society has resolved on the present occasion to present his Imperial Majesty with a tastefully bound copy of the Revised Persian New Testament. Not, be it noted, a Persian edition of the "Revised New Testament," for it is the singular fate ot that monument of unappre- ciated labour to be considered thus far un- worthy of translation for missionary purposes.
