Cold norther today
Most of my time for the past month has been sper.
on the run: To Synod, back to Mineral Wells up to
Sherman,home for barely a day to t. Worth for
Grand Opera,to.Caddo for meeting which failed to
' happen,in Strawn a week waiting for the weather to g
get right for the meeting, 'up home a night and a day
back to Caddo only to find that Dr.McLean had given
up the meeting altogether till Spring,tridd to get
a way back home thru the country but 'oouldnJt,went
to Ft Worth,missed Sat.night connection to Graham
and stayed in Pt.Worth over Sunday,finally arriving
ARMISTIUE DAY. Pound Eliasville
taking holiday and the inhabitants hunting duck,
squirrel and pecans. I joined the fpeoans gang and
found a good many.
Grand Opera was the best thing in the way of
music I ever heard and I have longing to go again
when it comes within reach. I got my money's worth
and then some,even if the seats were . o00 each.
Am glad I got to spend a Sunday in FtWorth and
hear some of the good preachers there, namely,Dr.
J.K. Thompson of the First Church,and r. Carr of
Broadway. It happened to be Newcomers, day in the
1st Church and the spirit of welcome and fellowship
toward strangers was very fine. Topic of the sermon
As "The Stranger That Is Within Thy Gates",and
_" 'was simply fine from every standpoint
diction and praoticality. Definite results were seer
immediately in the shaking of hands and the efforts
on the part of the congregation to make all vbsitQrt
and stragers feel at hmme. Sang in Sam Loshs
choir at Broadway that night, and found that they
were by no means cold toward the stranger themselves
Read in one day "The Re-oreation Of Brian Kent"
by Harold Bell Wright,and enjoyed the immediate
sensation left by the reading as I doo most all his
noble sentiment and great truths are pictured
and taught, and no doubt high resolutions are
made as the reader proceeds as I found myself
doing time after time as I read. But there are
Scenes pictured and situations created which I
think hardly add to the value of the book,and make
the book liable to ser6*us criticism. However it
ranks along with the other# works of the same author
and is a fine sample of the best modern fitoion.
Papa and I have been hauling corn and wood toda,
and the cold baaoina air with the strenuous exerois,
has produced a healthy tired feeling tonight by no
means unpleasant. Papa is sot far behind with
his workdue to the continued wet weather for so lon
that it will take us both several weeks to catch up
Here’s what’s next.
