AdminHistoryCorrespondence predominantly between the BFSS and members of The London Missionary Society (LMS), a protestant missionary society formed in England in 1795 'to spread the knowledge of Christ among heathen and other unenlightened nations'. Although broadly interdenominational in scope, the Society was largely Congregationalist in outlook and membership. The LMS operated missions to the South Seas, China and Madagascar, South and South East Asia, Southern and Central Africa and, to a lesser extent, in North America and the West Indies. Letter 1, dated 1820, states that William Allen of the BFSS had given the LMS the kind offer of instructing any of their missionaries in the British System.
