Dedication



TO

MY WIFE

THIS VOLUME IS MOST AFFECTIONATELY

Dedicated

MY DEAR WIFE: Be not surprised when you see this Dedication—this token of my high esteem. You, above all others, deserve this mark of heartfelt regard. When often discouraged in my labors, you sustained me with your affection; when bowed down under the attacks of bigotry, your love raised me up; when sorely depressed by the neglect of others, your sympathetic attention revived me. You have ever taken a deep and abiding interest in my work. Surely, in view of your faithfulness to me and the communion of a common faith in the doctrines following, it is proper for me to express the constant desire, that you may abundantly realize, in a future happy experience, the blessings of the Kingdom here delineated.

THAT YOU, WHO HAVE LIVED SO MUCH IN MY HEART.

May enjoy the privileges of “the first-born,” and thus reign with Christ; that our relationship here may qualify us the more for the fruition of each other’s society in the predicted Theocracy of our Lord Jesus, the Christ, is the ardent prayer of your devoted
HUSBAND.
