Address, WM. H. BERNARD, Editor & Proprietor, Wilmington, N. C. EXPERIENCE OF Sister g. Swwh &illips. I have for some time been pub lishing a pamphlet-style book, con taining the experience of SLster Phil lips, and her reasons for leaving the Missionaries and uniting with the Primitive Baptists. The book contains two hundred and eight pages of matter—divided into twenty-one chapter,s-^devoted to various subjects—important to an enquirer after truth. It needs no eulogy to one that knows the ability of her pen. Noth- ifig that I have ever seen from her is more instructive. It will be very profitable to all that are searching for Bible truth.— To such I honestly and earno.stly commend it. It may be obtained by orders sent to her at Rome, Georgia, or to me at Wilson, North Carolina. The price is 75 Cts. Orders can bo f^ent with the money at once. Tlie nook is now ready. P. D. Gold.
