WE copy the following paragraph from the American Baptist:
MR. WILSON: - I wish to say, through the medium of your paper, that I engage to unite with any number above fifty to pay five dollars annually for ten years, to be spent in ministerial labor in the great valley of the Mississippi. Who ‘will assist in sending the bread of life to the destitute? Who will strive to prevent the “Great Whore” in her attempt to gain foothold there?”
C. T. Norcross.
WE are desirous to know how many $5 subscriptions will be required to supply the great, valley of the Mississippi with the bread of life? If a sufficient sum should be subscribed, where can that bread be purchased with money? And how great an amount of gold and silver will be required to enable her daughters, to hedge up the way of the “Great Whore,” so as effectually to prevent the old lady from gaining a foothold in the great West?
How truly does the inspired Solomon tell us, “There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.”
NEW VERNON, N. Y.,
March 4, 1835.
