Dear Son Willie,—

I thank the Lord that you are moving like men who have not a blinder before your eyes. I praise the Lord that I am in very good health. My heart is cheerful and I am pleased with the settlement of [A. R.] Henry. I hope you will carry through all matters as men under the direct influence of the Holy Spirit and unmoved by all the subterfuges of Satan to bind yokes upon God’s people. The gospel ministry and pure, true missionary work clasp hands firmly; one is not independent of the other. None of us wants to be whitewashed by the interpretation of medical missionary work that is not medical missionary work at all. It is not healing; it is not saving; it is not unto eternal life in practicing. As a people we must take up medical missionary work. 18LtMs, Lt 292, 1903, par. 1
