Bedford, Ind., June 15, 1883.
Bro. Mathes is one of our able
pioneer preachers and editors' in the
reformation. We used to read his
paper and books when we were a
mere boy. We would be gla«l to
be at the happy reunion, but we
are too far away this time.

We come now to examine some
of the statements of Bro. Moore’s
pamphlet more closely, and to point

fallacious reasoning. That woman

Perhaps the greatest trouble after
all is, that she is not wont to till
