    TO MR. JOSHUA KEEVIL WESTWOOD,

    April 15, 1885.

    DEAR FRIEND, —

    I am very grateful for the check. The Lord prosper you.

    I cannot come to your Mission. At coming home I find so much in arrears that I must peg away very hard to get at all straight, and cannot think of anything outside.

    My hearty love to your good Aunt. May the Lord bless her.

    Your zeal for the Lord is a great joy to me. May your Hall be made magnificent by the King of mercy.

    I shall be very sorry to part with you. I hoped to have your personal service in the church in years to come. Still, do what is best for the whole Church of Christ; and I think that will involve your joining with Mr. Douglas. It will be a loss to me, but a gain to the cause of God in that place. I leave you to your own prayerful judgment, praying our Lord to direct you in going or in remaining as the case may be. My heart rejoices in Mr. Douglas, and I would lose much to help him.

    Yours ever heartily, C. H. SPURGEON.


    WESTWOOD,

    June 19, 1886.

    DEAR MR.KEEVIL, —

    The grey deserves all you can say about it; but why should you give me a horse? It is a great deal too much. I feel as if I must not take so large a gift of you.

    I am ready to buy it of you at a price, and thank you. Please let me have it for a while, and then we can have this matter over. Meanwhile the best of God’s blessings rest upon you for ever.

    This is my birthday, but no one else proposes such a gift. There seems to be only one Keevil. God bless him.

    Yours heartily, C. H. SPURGEON.


    WESTWOOD,

    April 5, 1888.

    DEAR FRIEND, —

    Where shall I find another heart so true, or warm as yours? I have been made ill by the heavy strain upon me, but love like yours is a cordial medicine. God bless you, dear Mr. Keevil! Your noble gift will help to bring up the Supper Gifts to an amount which will cheer my heart ....

    Thank you a thousand times over. I pray the Lord to prosper you, and bless your substance.

    How kind of you to take in so many men! They will get plenty of corn and clover.

    Yours very heartily, C. H. SPURGEON.


    WESTWOOD,

    July 30, 1889.

    DEAR MR.KEEVIL, —

    We are greatly indebted to you for the loan of the horse, for so long; but we are both of opinion that we ought to pay something. We are more than willing to do so. You are kindness itself, but I don’t see why you should find a horse for me.

    In any case we thank you heartily for your perpetual kindnesses, and we value beyond all price the love from which they flow. The Lord reward you according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

    Yours in deep gratitude, C. H. SPURGEON.


    WESTWOOD,

    Aug. 30, 1890.

    DEAR MR.KEEVIL,—

    What a patriarchal family you are —

    here is Joshua sending me a letter from Noah, containing news about Enoch and Job and his girls. It makes me feel proud to be in such ancient company.

    God bless you all. I will send Noah a receipt. Like his namesake, he seems to have had enough rain.

    Well, we shall get home. You are a good soul. May the Lord give you the double portion, as he did Job!

    Yours heartily ever, C. H. SPURGEON.
