Here we have a gathering
Men near and most
Whom must needs carry on
To work amidst small communities
Widely, and where
Officers to bring these up before
Their consciences they had discharged
Obligations they took upon themselves
They engaged enormous duties
So vast a territory must be difficult to prescribe
Any fixed routine is of priceless value
All persons engaged in work periodically pass through examinations by fire!
How easily one solitary sphere yields to discouragement
Or some ill-feeling predecessor in the same appointment
Or some leader who has not seemed sympathetic enough!
