What time ? The time to close
up this year’s labor, and make the
of“ Bte d
tian Sower Tract Fund. To do
this I am anxious to pay all of the
debts of the Fund, to pliVall of the
tracts to work I now have on hands
and to receive money enough to
buy a large supply for the begin­
ning of the new year. To do this
you must heed the following re­
quests :
- 1. Pay what you owe the Fund.
2. Send a contribution. How
many times you have resolved to
do this and have as often neglected
it !
3. Buy tracts and put them to
4. Enlist the hearts of others in
this matter, keeping always before
your mind that as faith without
works is dead bo is a tract fund
without money.
• 5. If you are unablo to buy tracts
send for all yon want; they are
free to such._ This is the main ob­
ject of this fund. No matter how
many I have sent you in times past
they are still free to you if you will
use them. I now have 25,000 card
tracts on hand ; help me to get rid
of them.
