Indeed, Sir, the subject appears to my mind one of such vast im portance that, notwithstanding the many urgent claims upon my pen at this time, I gladly devote an hour or two in writing to you, and shall ask you to believe that, in doing so, I am actuated by feelings of Sincere friendship towards you. Let me hope that you will receive my letter in the same spirit in which I write it.
Your prayer to be preserved from the doctrines for which I cons tended, in the conversation referred to, both pained and shocked me; and seemed singularly at variance with your parting wish, that we shall meet in'another and a better world. Good wishes may indicate the natural kindness of our heart, but they are not the way to life. Jesus alone is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. And Oh, Sir, I feel that our sentiments respecting the nature and extent of Christ's work, as man's surety, differ so widely that our meeting in glory is simply impossible, except our views become greatly changed, on the one side or the other. After carefully considering the whole conversation, your prayer seems to me to stand out in direct Opposition against your strongly expressed doc trines could it therefore be the prayer of faith? Or was it as vague and meaningless as the Lord's prayer must be in the lips of unconverted Gipsies, whether young or Old?
