Thomas Guthrie : Man and the Gospel

'Got up about 7A.M. had some tea & commenced to read. I read a Christian Age & some from a book by Thos Guthrie, 'Man & the Gospel' which I enjoy very much. I then went down & read a good while to Mr Bennett who is still very sick. I did not go out very much for the day. After dinner I read to him again went to bed about 7-30.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: James Bennetts Williams      Print: Book


Thomas Guthrie : Christ and the Inheritance of the Saints

'Our last 3 Sundays have all been stormy and it is a great comfort to be able to read & think today. I have so often wished on the passage that Mr. Watson had his sermons published. We are very fortunate in having so many to choose from but I still think often of Mr. Watson & wish I could hear him, or next best, read his discourses. I suppose you will soon be missing him too ... I enjoyed the reading of Mr. Morton's parting present very much (Christ or the Inheritance of the Saints by Mr. Guthrie). Mr. Brown still reads a sermon to the shepherds. I think if all goes well we will spend only 2 more Sundays on the sea.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Jessie Scott Brown      Print: Book
