A Grateful Tribute.

"For a long time I have been the subject of personal affliction, caused

by _two internal tumors_ of the _worst type_. Speedy death seemed

inevitable; yet there was a little hope that a surgical operation might

possibly remove the difficulty and prolong my day. To this hope I clung,

submitted to the operation, and it was a success. To the earnest prayers

of Christian people is due this grateful acknowledgment."
