We have returned, having spent very pleasantly and we hope profitably two weeks with little bands of waiting ones. As usual we found them very loving ones, partakers to a marked degree of this element of the divine nature–love. We visited Elyria and Cleveland, Ohio, and Lapeer, Almont, Belle River, Brockway Centre, and Detroit, Mich. To most of them we were strangers in the flesh “unknown and yet well known,” for we had all drank of the water from the spiritual Rock– Christ. We want to visit all the dear flock that we may know them and will be ready for another trip during October.
