this sensible and pointed reply to a
Roman Catholic paper ; “ When we
said there was nothing in the Bible .
to encourage prayers for the dead,
one of the Roman Catholic journals
took us up and quoted from the
book of Moca bees, to prove the doc­

in our Bible. It is very convenient
for our neighbors of the Romish
sect to have a lot of spurious tracts
which we call the Apochrypha, out
of which they prove their false <ioc-
trines. But, we would have them
to understand that when we speak
of the Bible we refer to the Word
of God.”
