Hickory Hill. 7th Jany. 1872.

My very dear son John:

Much I pray for you though seldom have I written to you. Yet no less do I love you than were I writing you oftener, and I think my love for you and the rest of my family is growing, especially for your souls safety and eternal safe- keeping. May my good Lord keep you safe as in his heart forever, is my prayer to Him.
Your Mother, Father, Sisters Anne and Joanna are all living by faith or trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ for both life and living, as exemplified by the Apostles, etc., etc. George Muller of Bristol, England, and Dr. Charles Cullis, Boston, etc., who is at the head of a consumptives’ home at Boston - I have sent you enclosed a little tract written by him. I am in correspond- ence both with him and G. Muller of Bristol. I have got tracts and books from both of these institutions. I get about 20 annual reports from each of these institutions, and have circulated them all around amongst the churches and others. I have sent to Boston for more, and am about sending to Bristol for more. We are very much interested with their doctrine and manner of living. It is so Bible-like, and worthy of our imitation. George Muller, in answer to a letter or question I put to him, said he had in the 5 houses between 18 and 19 hundred orphans and that he assisted 190 ministers. He has accomodation for 2050. It is 7 years since Dr. C. Cullis commenced taking in consumptives. There are from 40 to 50 die annually in a converted state, though when they enter the home their hearts may be as hard as a stone. He keeps their children and [provides] schools for them. He has a chapel also for them, etc. All are supported by God in answer to his prayers, without asking anything from man, and [he] has no funds of his own or from anyone else, except what the Lord inclines them to give as a free-will offering from day to day. I will send you herewith a monthly paper of his called "The Times of Refreshing" which will give you an account of other institutions of the kind in other places, and another tract called "God’s Way of Holiness." Also I send you accompanying this letter one of Mr. Muller’s reports for last year.
Your mother and Anne join me in love to you, and are glad to hear you are well. Hoping you are minding the one thing needful, I remain, yours most affectionately, hoping you will write soon
