The Christian’s Mark.

“Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”—­PHIL. 3:13, 14.


Ever since the death of our dear mother, I have felt a deep interest in your welfare.  And your being left, while young, in a measure dependent upon me, has increased my affection for you.  You have now left my roof, to sojourn among strangers.  You have little knowledge of the world, and your religious experience has been short.  I trust, therefore, you will cordially receive a few hints from one whose fraternal affection has been strengthened by many peculiar circumstances, and who, for many years, has not ceased to remember you in his prayers.
