As this is not a pamphlet to be read and then thrown aside, but is more of a reference book, for all future time, we have decided to have a few copies bound in good substantial cloth binding, which will be sold at seventy-five cents a copy, or five copies for three dollars and fifty cents.

Those having already procured a copy of the paper covered pamphlet, can have the same changed to cloth binding, by mailing it to us, with fifty cents, to pay for rebinding in cloth.




Single copy twenty-five cents, or five copies for one dollar, or twelve copies for two dollars, or twenty copies for three dollars. All to be ordered at the same time, and all to one address.

It affords as pleasure to put forth this pamphlet, for we feel assured it will be of comfort and edification to all lovers of the truth who may read it. And we bespeak for it a continuous and increasing sale for years to come. The more they are circulated, the greater will become the demand for them, unless we are greatly mistaken in regard to the kind of literature our people desire.

The pamphlet contains the following articles, viz:

First. "Minutes of the Proceedings and Resolutions, Drafted by the Particular Baptists, Convened at Black Rock, Md., September 28, 1832," at which time the division ("or split") took place between the Old School, and the New School Baptists.. Second. The "Everlasting Task for Arminians." By the late Eld. Wm. Gadsby, of England.

Third. "A Dream-Tour Through the Arminian Heaven." By Eld. H. M. Curry,, of Lebanon, Ohio.

Fourth. "Fatalism." By Eld. H. M. Ourry, of Lebanon, Ohio.

Fifth. "The Celestial Railroad." This allegory, after the style of "Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress," is written to show what wonderful improvements have been made since his day, in journeying to the "Celestial City." Please do not confound this with the Arminian poetical effusion of the same title.

Sixth. "A Riddle." By the late Elder Gilbert Beebe.

All the above six articles are bound in one pamphlet, in handsomely colored paper covers, and in cloth binding.

We feel confident that these pamphlets will sell at sight, and any one desiring to sell them, can get a liberal discount by ordering five or more copies at one time, all to one address. Cash in all cases to accompany the order. Address,

Our heavenly Father in his infinite wisdom makes allotments of trials, burdens, conflicts and afflictions to his children in just such measure, weight, depth and duration as seemeth good in his sight.
