The GOSPEL TRUTH
CHARLES G. FINNEY
To Julia Finney
15 February 1858
[MS in Finney Papers, supplement # 65]
Boston 15. Feb. 1858.
My Dr. Julia.
Uncle Hobart has been
on friday. Expects to visit you
as he says to take you to Brooklyn.
You must act your judgment about
going. Will it advance or retard
your spiritual life. This is with
me & I trust with you the great
question. If you think it best
to go, go, if not remain at home.
Let judgment rather than feeling
decide. We are well, with the
exception of my having an inflamed
eye. Your mother is gone to meeting
almost constantly. This morning
before 11. oClock she had gone to
her 3d meeting. The religious interest
in & about Boston is very extensive
& still extending. We hope to
be at home early in April.
I must write a word to William
Love to Miss Tucker &
Olivia & Elsa.
Your aff. Father
C. G. Finney.
