SICKLE FOR THE HARVEST.
BY G. V. MAXHAM,
MINISTER OF THE UNIVERSALIST CHURCH IN ERIE, PA,
PUBLISHED BY OLIVER SPAFFORD.
SIR;-I have taken the liberty to dedicate this Volume to you, as a Blight token of the great respect which I owe to your character; and from a sense of what is due to you, from every lover of our Blessed Faith in this Community.
If this Volume shall be received by many firesides, if it shall be borne to the broken-hearted, to the captives, and to them that are bound, and if it shall give comfort to the mourner, joy to the poor in spirit, and a glimpse of approaching freedom to the imprisoned mind, I am sure that no one will rejoice over it more than yourself, knowing as I do that your heart, hand and purse are engaged in the same work.
I beg your kind acceptance of it; while I assure you that the many deeds of kindness, and the many words of encouragement, that I have received from you will live in my memory warm and fresh until the heart that dictates and the hand that writes this acknowledgment are no more.
Yours most Truly,
G. V. MAXHAM,
