William, a healtl4, -
. vigorbus young man,
about eighteen yeankold,lwasAaken l sica. in the
abd'oiiVried Intel tlieliclispittil.' =Be l was a
very interesting youttil *to . .hid been well edu
cated and religiously . instructed. Like many
young men, he had enlisted as %soldier, expect
ing to make hitruielf a fitaNie and distinguished
man. But God in his providence very , soon cut
off all his hopes in this world.
I met him for the first time in the hospital.
tie was lying on cot, in a weak 'and de
sponding state. I gave him a' Sabbath school
paper. When he took 'it, he said; "Ah that
looks like hoine. I'have always attended the
Sabbath school. I knots' `these' papers well."
I then asked him , " Have yea a'saiinginterest
in Jesua . Christ." "No," he Said; "lint I should
have. We should be Christians. ' My mother
is a good woman. She has' told me about these
things•many times." I pressed upon' him the
duty of seeking the salvation of Jeaus Christ
After a few days I saw him again; and gave
him a tract, with Semi) good advice.' He said;
"I must think Were about - these things; I don't
know how it will go with me." •
When I visited him the third time he spoke
out with a full voice, before I could Speak to
him: "0, Eir, I prayed Ali might long on this
bed, that the Lord would have mercy upon me,
aid save, me. 0, I wish I was a christian ; 0,
sir; I would give all the werld to be a christian."
asked him if he was willing to give himself to
Jesus. Christ. "Yes, and I would ; give all , the
Mil to Itin'if I had it.' 'Do`
yea yud not think
You love him now 'better then anything Woe 1"
He said, "I do feel more interest in these things
than lever did before ;, -I will serve . God here
after ; live or An, I *titian!. thiLordet
: I was satisfied ra.,gre a t, change-had taken
pace in him, andlill my subsequent communi
cations with him confirmed this belief. In a
few: ll 4 l i Wi/liani. *dame deliribus,'. Mid died.'
II believe he died the death of a christian.
Now, I could not say that I was the instru
ment of e fratttriterskin- and 4ssfilatiolul , 13 IThe
good seed had longtgo , heogr sow in hie heart,
It a good, pious, praying mother. The faithful
tOachings of a good Sabbtith School instructor
had also made.good impresnions upon his mind.
The ground, was: cultivates the, seed was sown;
it Ad, hy the hle,sdng of 131:4, take root in the
heart. Bnt,lt the providence.otged, I t was
celled to help gather in the harvest. ,One .
sow the seed, another may reap the 'harvest,
stud gather it in, for safe keeping, we will
- work in the vineyard of , the Lprd, we can,find
something to do in gatherh_og,.the- children, , of
