times some-times takes us down into the
ieeps of affliction, that we may
see his promises. Many of the
promises are written in sympa
thetic ink a kind of ink which
leaves no mark on the paper till

black lines stand out. There is

be held to the fire of some fierce
and trying affliction.
You must be cast upon a certain
island ere you can shake eff the
blasts into the fire. Or you must
be banished to another certain
island ere you .can be "m the
spirit on the Lord's day," and
"bear behind you the voice ot the
trumpet, and ee the majestic
figure at whose feet you shall fall
s dead. I say, be thankful for
trials, when ihey come.
