LINEAR BIBLES TO GREAT BRITAIN
Our British friends desiring the new Bibles are requested to send their orders and remittances direct to the home office, Allegheny, Pa., U.S.A. Bibles sent to foreign countries will not contain pictures. We were obliged to omit these so as to bring the Bibles within the postal weight limits. Price 9/- and 13/- according to binding, include postage.
THE NEW BIBLES—EXTRA COPIES, ETC.
We are glad to announce that all orders for the new Bibles are now filled. If you have ordered and paid for any which have not yet reached you, please inquire at your express office, if you have one, otherwise at your post-office, and if not there, write us at once full particulars;—when ordered, amount of money sent, and whether by money order or registered, or how.
Quite a number ordered Bibles when first announced, who have not yet sent in the money for them. If such desire us still to hold their books for them, they will please send us postal cards at once stating whether they prefer the $2.00 or the $3.00 grade, and how long they desire us to hold them;—when they will be ready to pay for them. We will hold them for you to the end of the year if need be, though we obligated ourselves to pay promptly for all, in order to secure the low prices.
Many letters come asking whether the writers may order additional copies of this work. We answer, Yes; you are welcome to them as long as they last. We will lay aside such as are requested to be held and all the others may go out forthwith. The sooner they are in the hands of the Church the sooner they will do their designed work, and the greater that work: “the time is short,” and this help is needed everywhere.

Some have inquired respecting the double readings in certain places where there seems to be little difference in the wordings. We answer that the upper reading represents the Common Version and the lower the Revised Version—even when the difference is merely in the spelling or italicizing of a word or a change in the punctuation. The aim of the Linear Bible is to present the two versions complete and distinct in one Bible; and the work is faithfully accomplished.
