Ellen G. White: The Lonely Years: 1876-1891 (vol. 3)


Sympathy and Love

Many need more human sympathy. This is a quality of our natures which God has given us to render us charitable and kind to those with whom we are brought in contact. June 6, 1876. 3BIO 14.7

The article fills three full columns and is signed “E.G.W.” The testimony from which this material is drawn, almost word for word, with the exception of personal references or applications, fills eleven full pages. The wording of the closing paragraph of the testimony and the Signs article are identical. 3BIO 15.1

This procedure was not new. In 1875 the Signs carried twenty-nine articles, eight of which were drawn from the Testimonies. In 1876 twenty-nine of the forty-one articles were selected from Testimonies material then running through the press. 3BIO 15.2
