Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 172

WORDS OF SYMPATHY

To [Mr. Thomas H. Olney].

NIGHTINGALE LANE, October, 1875.

DEAR FRIEND, —

I could not say much to Mr. M____, for I felt stunned by the tidings of your brother’s death, and could not realize it; indeed, I cannot now.

God bless you, beloved brother; and as He comes so very near in solemn deeds, may He come just as near in love! Peace be to you in the hour of sore amazement!

I send my deepest sympathies to the bereaved wife. I can do no better than pray that she may now be very graciously sustained. If she can calmly bow before the Lord, it will be for her own good. Grief so natural, and so likely to prove excessive, must be restrained for the sake of herself and babes.

God help her, poor soul! What a loss is hers!

Yours lovingly,

C. H. SPURGEON.
