N.B.—Those of the interested, who by reason of old age or accidents, or other adversity, are unable to pay, will be supplied FREE, if they will send a Postal Card each December, stating their case and requesting the paper.
In our issue of May 1st we defended the inspiration of the apostolic writings and teachings; in the S.S. Lesson of this issue we treat a supposed objection to Paul’s course with Barnabas; and in our next we expect to show that the Apostle Paul’s teachings relative to woman and her relationship to man, and to God’s plan, are in perfect accord with sanctified reason,—and give no ground for objection to the Apostle’s inspiration.
THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM IN GREAT BRITAIN
Ever since our return from Europe we have had an earnest desire to see the truth scattered with liberal hand in Great Britain and Ireland. The people there seemed to us particularly ready for the truth; because, while freedom seemed to prevail, there it had not run into infidelity as so often appeared elsewhere.
But although an agency for DAWN was established (in London), and although a number of friends there are very zealous in circulating the truth, the colporteur-work, the chief agency for preaching these Kingdom truths, never seemed to prosper. The fault we believe lies in the friends’ not knowing how to do it; and we have arranged with Brother S.D. Rogers (who has been extremely successful here, both as a Colporteur and as an instructor of Colporteurs) to go to England, meet those who earnestly long to be in the work, if they can but make expenses, and give them practical lessons.
And thus under the Lord’s blessing we trust a great work will be started in England, Scotland and Ireland. And here we might remark that Brother Boehmer, who recently went to Germany, writes us that he is getting started and has hopes that he will be able to meet his expenses there; but that if not he will gladly join in the crusade in Great Britain.
Now, we want to hear at once from all the Brethren and Sisters in Great Britain and Ireland, who are free from family encumbrances, and anxious to spend their lives in preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, by the sale of DAWNS;—the way which the Lord seems to have specially prepared and to be specially blessing, in the present harvest work. We cannot promise earthly wealth as the reward of earnest toil in this service for the Lord; but we can, from experience here, assure the unencumbered the „things needful” and joy and peace and spiritual blessing in this present time; and to all the faithful and persevering, in every department of his service, the Lord promises „treasure in heaven”—glory, honor and immortality.
After writing to us of your desire to enter the work, with particulars respecting your age, size, previous occupation, etc., begin to shape your affairs and your prayers to the proposed course. Brother Rogers may be expected in England in September; and those who write may expect to be fully notified of arrangements.
COLPORTEURS, TAKE NOTICE!
Colporteurs need not hereafter send in to us all the addresses to which they deliver DAWNS, but merely keep note of those found to be specially interested, who do not subscribe for the TOWER. Send in such with each Semi-monthly Report—on separate card or letter sheet.
The Semi-monthly Reports, for which blank have been furnished, are expected from all colporteurs, and are requested to be mailed on the 1st and 16th of each month. These should be kept separate from orders for which other blanks are provided.
Routes given to Colporteurs are expected to be followed strictly. This is necessary to the proper conduct of the work and to prevent confusion, as the number of „harvest” laborers is increasing.
The Swedish and Dano-Norwegian translations of Millennial Dawn, Vol. I. are in the hands of the type-setters. We hope to have them ready about September next.
