Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 100

TO MR. WILLIAM OLNEY

To [Mr. William Olney].

MENTONE, Jan. 31, ‘91.

DEAR FRIEND, —

That Hastings incident raises my desire that we may see the like. God be praised. The old gospel is the real wonder-worker; the new stuff would not save a robin. I am so glad you like the North African Mission. It is a live work spiritually — financially it needs go; but the spiritual element of faith in God delights me.

I have been in much bodily trial this week, but a dogged determination not to succumb has, by God’s blessing, borne me onward, and I am getting on now.

Here I have souls won for Christ, but it is good mowing where there is much grass. Still 40 every morning is a pretty little congregation, and they are by no means ordinary folks, but people of education and thoughtfulness and influence. God bless you with sound health, and your dear mother also.

Yours heartily,

C. H. SPURGEON.
