Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 235

GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE

To [The Secretary of the Church at Devonshire Sq.].

CLAPHAM, Jan. 8.

MY DEAR SIR, —

I congratulate you on the prospect of an emigration from the worse than Egypt of Devonshire Square. Whatever your chapel may have been in ages past, it has become of late atmospherically and entomologically horrible; the din outside, on the Lord’s-day, in which Jews and Gentiles emulate each other in row-making, fits your house to be a den in Babylon rather than a temple upon Zion. That a church and congregation should have gathered so long, in such a spot, is a miracle of grace on God’s part, and of inertness on the part of man. May you get away from the rags and the racket, and may you and your friends enjoy prosperity abundantly!

Yours very truly,

C. H. SPURGEON.
