[top left corner of page] Had you not better give me the number of your P.O. Box
Austin, Texas.
April 29, 1894
My Dear Friend.
I take pleasure in forwarding a package of papers containing “The Rule of Gold”. The last sermon previously published was, I believe, “The Long Climb of Man,” a copy of which I mail to you with this. I will bear in mind what you say about “Herald of Light”. Very rarely a copy finds its way into a second hand book store in New York. Amiel’s Journal is suggestive and remarkable. I have just glanced at it, and hope to find time to read it soon. The news from the centre at New York shows constant and steady advance in the occult. The Coxey movement is led by invisible guides, and plutocracy, which at first derided, is beginning to tremble. “The weak things can be used by the hand of God to confound the mighty.” Send me any noticeable utterance on the Industrial problem that you may see on the Pacific coast. I am very much isolated here, and would be grateful for any thing earnest and free on that grand theme that you may be able to send me, from time to time.
Faithfully yours,
E. M. Wheelock
The friends at Fountain Grove are setting up the new poems for publication. This is good news.
