.Please, allow me- space in
^y.our valuable paper to speak1 of
?.Jf? <*?r Wprk, well, it has been quite
a while since I, have worried
3*9U. But I have had such good
meetings I thought I would tell
s it abroad. We have just closed
cur" revival meetings at four
points. ^The Lord gave; us great
success at each church. ^e be

Taylor of Sumter assisted me at
? , this church. He left a lasting
impression upon the minds ind
in the hearts of the members,
they said it was the best they
I i have"'ever had. We ;jeft; Holy'
, Spring and moved to Mt. Zion
t N baptist church. At this church^
(Mt. Eioh,) we had the, best
meeting, that we have had in Ji5
.years. Dr. Maloy ?fG^?erivilie
. came to us Monday after the?2nd
Sunday in August and preached
.every day fro m Monday untf ?.
t-^-?Wday afternoon, and he preach -
. ed with power from onV high,;
and took in one.'hundred /includ1'
? ?ng^nackslid?ra md .?lfa*' >%. '^>ap^
ami restored 81 to Zion Dr.
M?yloy is the shrewdest reviv
alist I have ever seen o? haye
had to help die.. He charms
the sinners so that they can not
get away, then he goes , up to
. them and put's them in his net.
. They ju9t cant get away from
him, if they' sit and listen to him..
Dr . Maloy is one of the >best
preachers in the State, pr any
where in the United States. He
did me great good at Mt. Zion,
My p?ople were very much
pleased with Dr. Maloy, more
than they have been with any
one for many years,. Dr. Maloy
enjoyed his visits among my
people. He'said that it ?was tjie
best country church he had ever
seen in all of his life. He left
out what he ought to have said,
instead of saying the best' coun
try church-.- He ought to , have
said it was the best he ever saw
anywhere^ for I do - npt think
that he. has eyer met a better
people ;anywhere. They are^ as
good as any people, they behave
well, they obey ordei s, they pay
.well, they feed well, they dress
well, they are as good looking
people a*- you have ever ' seen
anywhere, and they > ha ve th eir
own horses, mules and turnouts,
their fine carriges, rubber tire
buggies and they are up-to-date.
Mt. Zion people or church, is an
intelligent church, they are an
up to date church, no preacher
need be afraid to take Mt Zion,
at Epworth's, hut please don't
bother it yet a while, I want to
. stay there a little while longer
as fha ve done so much work
^here, I would like to enjoy it.
So let me alone, preachers, do
not bother me. I, by the grace of
Gad ?have set out the trees, wait
10 me eat some of the fruit ' cf
the beautiful trees of the >ine
