Dear Madam:

Your letters of January 6th and 8th have been received, and in reply I am happy to assure you that as a denomination we are in the fullest sense total abstainers from the use of spirituous liquors, wine, beer, cider, and also tobacco and all other narcotics, and are earnest workers in the cause of temperance. All are vegetarians, many abstaining wholly from the use of flesh food, while others use it in only the most moderate degree. 9LtMs, Lt 99, 1894, par. 1

We have an extensive literature on these subjects, which has had a wide circulation. I enclose two small tracts recently published, bearing on the liquor traffic, in which you may be interested. 9LtMs, Lt 99, 1894, par. 2

I expect to speak at the campground next Wednesday, January 10, at 3 p.m., and I extend to you a cordial invitation to attend the service, after which, if you desire, I shall be pleased to have an interview with you at my tent, No. 15. 9LtMs, Lt 99, 1894, par. 3

Please note that the meeting is at Middle Brighton, the next station after North Brighton. 9LtMs, Lt 99, 1894, par. 4

With kindest regards, 9LtMs, Lt 99, 1894, par. 5

Yours in every work for the uplifting of fallen humanity. 9LtMs, Lt 99, 1894, par. 6
