In the pamphlet, the newly organized Board of National Mission asked that "every church send 42 per cent (the National Mission percentage) of its benevolent budget to the Board (with due regard to the arrangements existing between the Board and any independent synod or presbytery).... If the Board comes through this year without a deficit, there need be no more cross words about that budget."
