BROTHER ADAMSON’S PLEDGE
FOUR HUNDRED GERMAN DAWN
DEAR BRO. RUSSELL:—Being busy all good weather have not had time to read „Sons of God,” but only the letters and the forcible View in the February TOWER.
The thought of the height of Babylon’s self-exaltation adding force to the fall is borne out by Rev. 18:7—”How much she hath glorified herself and lived deliciously so much torment and sorrow give her, for she saith in her heart I sit a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow” (such as we see predicted and threatened here and elsewhere). I think all should read Isa. 45, 46 and 47, and Jer. 50 and 51, with Rev. 17 th and 18 th chapters.
A word about German DAWN. I think it right to pledge myself for 400 copies, or one fifth of the 2000 needing to be pledged and one twenty-fifth of the whole 10,000. I do not know how soon I can pay for the 400, but not before last of March and you must store them and send as I order. Hope I shall sell thousands of German DAWN.
In the Master’s name I most heartily thank Bro. Zech for his patient toil of a consecrated spirit shown in his persevering labor on DAWN translating it into German. „My reward is with me,” shows that Christ’s reward to our dear brother is not only sure but will follow speedily.
The interesting letters of this month’s TOWER much refreshed the saints here as elsewhere no doubt. J. B. ADAMSON.
