Glory of glories, light of lights is he,
By H. LIVERMORE.
To the Philanthropic inhabitants of Philadelphia.
07 The publisher of Millennial Tidings is desirous of sending “the swift messengers,” to the Aborigenes
of America, believing that they are the very people spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, in the eighteenth chapter of his prophecy. The American churches are called upon to attend to this long afflicted people; and to prepare themselves for the gloriousobject that meets their view in the chapter above referred to, even of “the present to the Lord of hosts, of a people scattered, &c.” O, America ! Thou blossomed wilderness, the honor is conferred on thee, to have God's elect (Israel mine elect, see Isaiah, xlv, 4.) people within thy borders.
The day is at hand, when it shall come to pass that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, &C.....................Isaiah, Ilth chapter. O that this nation would not wait till judgments come for disobedience; but obey the Almighty call, and relieve his poor Indians—i. e. the ten tribes of Israel.
I wish to send this book--and shall give twentyfive copies myself. Any person who may feel free to assist the object may deposit their money with me, and I shall consider the books as a sacred deposit for my Lord and Master.
This Book is neither a catch penny, nor money making business, as to the motives and object of the publisher. All persons who know me, know that I am poor, and that I am sickly too—I am ready to do all I can toward “supplying my own necessities, as well as to help others”--and I read“ that a willing mind is first accepted.”
I shall sell the books at a reasonable price: the whole expense of publishing rests upon me.
Fancy that sweetly airy voice,
we do not well; this is a day of good tidings; and we hold our peace:—if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us; now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household.”—2 KINGS, 7, 9.
