TO A FIRST READER



   Beloved Student: - Christ is meekness and Truth
enthroned.  Put on the robes of Christ, and you will
be lifted up and will draw all men unto you.  The
little fishes in my fountain must have felt me when I
stood silently beside it, for they came out in orderly
line to the rim where I stood.  Then I fed these
sweet little thoughts that, not fearing me, sought their
food of me.
   God has called you to be a fisher of men.  It is not a
stern but a loving look which brings forth mankind to
receive your bestowal, - not so much eloquence as tender
persuasion that takes away their fear, for it is Love alone
that feeds them.
   Do you come to your little flock so filled with divine
food that you cast your bread upon the waters?  Then
be sure that after many or a few days it will return
to you.
   The little that I have accomplished has all been
done through love, - self-forgetful, patient, unfaltering
tenderness.
