The GOSPEL TRUTH
CHARLES G. FINNEY
To Members of the Presbytery of Troy
30 March 1827
[Published in Charles G. Finney, A Sermon, Preached in the Presbyterian Church at Troy, March 4, 1827, by the Rev. Charles G. Finney, from Amos III. 3: Can two walk together except they be agreed? (Troy, N.Y.: Tuttle and Richards, 1827), page 2.]
TROY, MARCH 30th, 1827.
REV. CHARLES G. FINNEY,
Dear Sir&emdash;Believing that the publication of the sermon you preached in this city, soon after opening the present session of the Presbytery of Troy, from the text, "Can two walk together except they be agreed," will essentially tend to advance the interests of the Redeemer's kingdom; we, members of said Presbytery, earnestly request a copy of the same for the press.
Affectionately yours, in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel,
Samuel W. May, John Younglove,
I. B. Goodrich, Amos Savage,
Nathan S. S. Beman, John B. Shaw,
John P. Cushman, Thomas Fletcher,
Jonathan Kitchel, John Hendricks,
John E. Baker, Zebulon R. Shepherd,
Joseph Brown, Timothy Graves.
The discourse mentioned in your communication, and which you request for the press, was altogether an extemporaneous one. Since preaching upon that subject, I have hastily sketched down the principal thoughts, and if you are of opinion that it will, in any degree, promote the object mentioned in your request, I submit it to your discretion, with my humble prayer that God may add his blessing.
Yours in the bonds of the Gospel,
C. G. FINNEY.
Troy, 30th March, 1827.
