Administrative HistoryThe Local Committee and the Finance Committee, which succeeded to its functions, consisted of a small group of clerical missionaries. These committees supervised the administration of the mission, dealing with such matters as: the location and work of missionaries and catechists, oversight of mission estimates and expenditure, the upkeep of mission property, and relations with native and British authorities. The difficulty of convening meetings led to much business being transacted by 'resolutions passed by correspondence'.
