Us From New York
About Billy Sunday
Poughkeepsie, N. C.
June 30, 1935
Editor, Duplin Times:
Every year at Millbrook, near
Poughkeepsie the International
Union Mission holds a conference.
Every year Billy Sunday is one of
the speakers. We went out today
to hear him. He is changed from
the Billy Sunday that we heard in
Bluefield, W. Va. fourteen years a-
go. Then he could preach twice a
day, shake hands with a thousand
people each day. The spirit was
willing today, but the flesh was
weak. A few shook his hand after
the sermon, but Mrs. Sunday soon
surried him away. Billy Sunday
alluded to his condition in these
words "0, God, the house in which
I live is decaying. The window
lights are out, the windows are
rattling, the roof leaks ,and some
of the shingles are off."
It was pathetic to hear him say:
"I cannot understand why I cannot
get out and preach as I once
In conclusion he said: "I have
worn myself out trying to make It
easier for people to do right and
harder for them to do wrong".
This was the most elevated thing
I ever heard Billy Sunday say. I
would go a long' way to hear him
say it again. I am sure he has
made It easier for many people to
do right and harder for them to do .
wrong. His views are not my views
his. theology ia not my theology, '
but I thank God for all who make
it "'easier for us to do right and '
harder for us t odo wrong."
