ine subject of Dr. Cribtenton's ddscu:sioa
was Revelationtl:18, "i am he that liveth
ano: was dead; and, behold, I am alive for
evermore"
Dr.'Crittenton spoke earnestlv and feel
ingly on the blessings of Christianity, the
rewar a ana promises as contained in the
book of Reverations and the invitation ex-
tenaea to all men, to accept God's word.
Rev. 22; 17, "And the spirit and the, bride
say, come, and let him that heareth say,
come, v Arid let him that is athirst come.
And whosoever, will, let him take of the
waiter of life freely.". , - -

gospel and the fulfilled prophecies. ' Hj
gave many scriptural quotations' of-the
prophecies revealed to St John; the apos
tle, in the Isle of Patmos,- of 'the coming
of Christ and the end of the world. Rev.
14:2, "And they sung as it were a new

"These oM prophets," said Dr.; Cribten-
