THE LONDON TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION, 1903



   Beloved Students: - Your letter and dottings are an
oasis in my wilderness.  They point to verdant pastures,
and are already rich rays from the eternal sunshine of
Love, lighting and leading humanity into paths of peace
and holiness.
   Your "Thanksgiving Day," instituted in England on
New Year's Day, was a step in advance.  It expressed
your thanks, and gave to the "happy New Year" a higher
hint.  You are not aroused to this action by the allurements
of wealth, pride, or power; the impetus comes from
above - it is moral, spiritual, divine.  All hail to this
higher hope that neither slumbers nor is stilled by the
cold impulse of a lesser gain!

MY 253


   It rejoices me to know that you know that healing
the sick, soothing sorrow, brightening this lower sphere
with the ways and means of the higher and everlasting
harmony, brings to light the perfect original man and
universe.  What nobler achievement, what greater glory can
nerve your endeavor?  Press on!  My heart and hope
are with you.

      "Thou art not here for ease or pain,
       But manhood's glorious crown to gain."
