An association of conservative Congregational ministers formed this magazine with the aim of providing their churches with reports on the Piscataqua Missionary Society and other evangelical reading material. It was in print from 1805 to 1808. The articles are printed under pen names, but we know that Jesse Appleton's articles are under the name "Leighton."
The articles include:
Sketches of the Character of the Rev. Samuel MacClintock;
Duty and Encouragement to Pray for the Out Pouring of the Holy Spirit;
Family Order and Government, or the Pious and Exemplary Household;
Report of the London Missionary Society, 1803;
