    TO REV. W. J. MAYERS NIGHTINGALE LANE,

    Sept. 25.

    DEAR FRIEND, —

    I am going away in November and I am anxious during my absence to keep the flame burning. Would you come and hold a week of services in the Tabernacle for the conversion of sinners? There are several brethren who would help you, and we could get others whom you may name, or try for them. I have no brother Win. Olney now, and must look to some of my brethren for aid.

    Would the week beginning Nov. 8 suit you? I shall feel joyful confidence in leaving the work in your hands. Do come if you can.

    Yours ever lovingly, C. H. SPURGEON.


    WESTWOOD,

    Mar. 4, 1882.

    DEAR MR.MAYERS, —

    Your letter and gift cheer me much. God bless you. I love you heartily in the Lord.

    I am of your mind as to the supper, but I know that my leading friends would not be. It will come as surely as Xmas. Christian people will one day be ashamed to have these things at their religious gatherings, but I have had proof of late that it must be growth, not force. I have no wine-glasses in the house, so that all who come here must go without, especially as there is no alcohol on the premises: but I do not feel a right to do the same with others. The wave is rising which will bear away our present customs, and I will not be behind it, but neither do I think it wise to precede it.

    The supper costs about £200, but three of us pay for it —

    so that nothing comes from the fund, except certain incidental repairs, etc.

    Yours ever heartily, C. H. SPURGEON.


    PARIS,

    Wednesday.

    DEAR MR.MAYERS, —

    Mr. B___ tells me you have begun right hopefully. May the Lord grant you a good harvest time. I am very grateful to you, and to the other brethren “which were partners with Simon.”

    Tell the people I am praying for a great blessing, and especially that those “not far from the kingdom of God” may be brought in. There are some of the most hopeful people in the world in the congregation. God bless them, and save them from being satisfied with blossoming. Fruit unto God, in repentance and faith is what we want at once. I hope the closing meeting will be so fruitful that there will be a demand for more such gatherings. I cannot ask you to come again —

    but if you and the others will, I shall be greatly the debtor to you all. With much love to you and the brethren Sawday and Stott, and all my elders and officers, I am, Ever your hearty friend, C. H. SPURGEON.
