cannot give ; and He will, when needful, put some wholesome bitters in your cup of earthly comforts, that you may not drink too eagerly. In a word, though believers will surely repent, and be found in the use of the means of grace, these things have nothing to do with their acceptance. They are “accepted in the Beloved," * because He died for sinners, and because, renouncing every other plea, they commit their souls and their all to Him, as their wisdom, righteousness, their Lord, their Prophet, Priest, and King.

Do not indulge unbelief, but consider it not merely as a weakness, but a sin. Yea, it is the greatest of all our sins, and the source of them. We can believe one another, and yet distrust and contradict the God of truth. When He says, “I will receive you," how dare we say He will not ? But you are yet but a young plant. May the blessing of God water you, and make you grow in faith and holiness ; "then shall you know, if you follow on to know the Lord.”

I have often written in this strain to Mrs. C- The same Gospel is equally good for the mother and the child. Give my love and Miss Catlett's to your dear parents, to James, and to all your brothers and sisters, and take a large share for yourself. We can love those whom we never saw. How else should we love the Saviour ? I mean to write to Mr. C and to Mr. B- while I am here, and as soon as I conveniently can. We left London on the 9th instant, and spent a week at Reading; arrived here in safety on the 19th. We are both in perfect health. Mercy and goodness attend and surround us, at home and abroad.

I commend you to the great and good Shepherd. Endeavour to be cheerful, thankful, humble, and watchful. You have no sufficiency in yourself, even to think a good thought; but let not this discourage you. Look to Him, and you shall be enlightened. You shall be able to do all things, through Him who is always near to strengthen you. Pray for us, and believe me to be,


affectionate friend, Southampton, July 25th, 1799.

CONSUMPTION By G. T. CONGREVE, Coombe Lodge, Peckham.


[ocr errors]

The Nature, Progress, and True Treatment of this Scourge of England,

with 133 Selected Cases. The following Case is from the ELEVENTH SERIES :“CONSUMPTION IN AGGRAVATED FORM.”-CASE OF

MRS. PUGA, of SHIFNAL. In a letter, dated May 20, 1884, Mr. Pugh writes me :-"Pardon me that I have not written ere this, expressing my gratitude for the great good your Balsam and Liniment have done for my wife. Consumption had set in, ovidently in the most aggravated form. Through your kindness in making a reduction in your charge, we were able to continue your treatment for twelve months, when she quite recovered, and has been wonderfully well since.-John PoGo, Prior Lee, Shifnal, Salop.”

From the “ CHRISTIAN HERALD,” June 4, 1884. “ CONSUMPTION CURABLE.—There is probably no disease affecting mankind that has been so dire in its ravages, and so distressing to friends of the sufferer, as this. How many a Christian worker has been called away at the beginning of a life of usefulness. How many a promising youth or lovely girl has faded like a leaf or flower. Medical science, until of late years, has been utterly at fault in dealing with this terrible disease. Little was done except to palliate urgent symptoms, and even as regards this, few men of eminence were agreed. Mr. George Thomas Congreve, of Coombe Lodge, Peckham, was the first to announce boldly that Consumption is Curable.' He has proved this statement, not only by the most convincing arguments, but by indisputable facts. The new edition of his book may be had post free for sixpence only, and has deservedly attained a circulation of one hundred thousand. It contains a great number of cases. Besides these, we point our readers’ attention to those which Mr. Congreve is publishing, one case every week, many of which had been given up as incurable. Mr. Congreve's ably-written book there is a chapter which should be read by all — Forebodings of Danger.' Disease, from its earliest approach, and through all its stages, is graphically described, and fallacies of treatment exposed. Moreover, the book is full of the most valuable information, and should be consulted in all cases of chest disease. Mr. Congreve has been eminently successful in cases of students of Mr. Spurgeon's and other colleges, mission workers, Salvation Army workers, &c. He is known to a vast number of Christian ministers of all denominations, and the poor (by their recommendation) have always found the most kind and sympathetic treatment at his hands.' The EDITOR of the “CHRISTIAN COMMONWEALTH” writes,

July 17, 1884. “DR. CONGREVE'S TREATMENT OF CONSUMPTION.-Our readers will bear testimony to the fact that we are not in the habit of commending what we are not satisfied is worthy.

We make these preliminary observations in view of what we are about to remark concerning Dr. Congreve's treatment of pulmonary diseases. We have had a few cases of his treatment under our special observation, and one of these has been in our own family, and we do not hesitate to say that his treatment has given entire satisfaction. The case in our own family was a very difficult one, but we are happy to say that a practical cure has been effected, and we feel it to be a duty to both Dr. Congreve and suffering humanity to give this voluntary testimony to what our eyes have seen.-Ed. C.C.
