Probably no book ever had a greater number of free circulars sent out in its interest than MILLENNIAL DAWN, VOL. I. East and West, North and South, dear friends of the truth are continually seeking to put the “meat in due season” before the truth-hungry. Our latest surprise in this direction was the receipt of an order for a copy of the MILLENNIAL DAWN, from a western town, enclosing a circular of which we had not heard until then, a copy of which follows. God bless the dear co-laborers who far and near are seeking in one way and another to feed his “sheep”—to proclaim the good tidings of great joy. Your efforts have much to do with the large circulation of the Truth. Over 300,000 copies, of Vol. I., The Plan of the Ages, are already in the hands of readers, and the work is still progressing. God be praised!
DEAR FRIEND:—Lest you should wonder how I came in possession of your name, I will state that I first saw it in the correspondence column of __________, of which I am a reader.
Feeling that you must be one who is interested in searching after a knowledge of the wonderful things of our Great Father’s creation, and desiring that your steps may be still further directed in the knowledge of things past, present and future, I have taken the liberty of addressing this communication to you, with the special object in view of calling your attention to a wonderful book—one which, perchance, you already have; but if not, one which I, a disinterested and humble servant of the Lord, would counsel you to obtain without delay.
“MILLENNIAL DAWN” is a book which has been to me, and I know to many others, a great source of gladness and inspiration: a “helping hand” indeed to every earnest student of the Word, producing an inward joy which has caused many an one to cry out time and again from an overflowing heart, “Praise the Lord!” If you want to see things “new and old” in God’s Word, brought out as you have never before seen them, and to have, as a humble, hungering seeker after truth, “meat in due season,” obtain this deeply interesting book and prayerfully read it, comparing it with the Word. It can be obtained from the publisher by remitting the very low price named. Think not, dear friend, that I am in anyway interested in the publication and sale of this book other than from a desire to spread the truth; for such is not the case.
I am sending out this circular (without the knowledge of the author and publishers) as a free-will missionary work of my own—a feeble effort on my part to spread the “glad tidings of great joy,” and an effort which, please God, may he mightily bless to the praise of his great name, to whom be all the glory, Amen.
Should you desire further information on this subject, I will be pleased to hear from you.
Yours in the hope of the Gospel,
JOHN A. MITCHELL.
