Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 221


To [An Elder].

MENTONE, December 21, 1877.

Dear ____,

This is a Sabbath with us, but not a Sunday. It is grey and windy, and I am not able to go out. Yet I am much better, although my middle finger is only middling, and will not let the gout go out.

The small punning which appears above is solely due to your letter. I am not in the habit of committing puns, but there is a contagion about persons who have the evil in its very worst form …. I desire you to tender my kindest love to each one of the elders …. I thank those who pray for me. In my pain and weakness I have had great need of your prayers, and now that I am getting well I feel it even more.

Oh, for a great blessing! I open my mouth wide, and there is the promise, “I will fill it.”

The weather is unsettled here, and cold for this place. The logs of olive blaze cheerfully, and are a necessity.

Remember me to _____. Peace be unto you f I cannot write more — the finger forbids.

Yours heartily,
