ADDRESS TO MY CHILDREN.

Dear Surviving Children:--Your oldest brother and oldest sister left us years ago, your youngest sister November last, and your precious mother 26th day of last May, whose advice and precious admonitions rest as so many golden leaflets on your memories. Treasure them up; they are more precious than rubies or the gold of Opher.

They have left us an abiding confidence that they are at rest. They have been taken out of the world one by one, as we too, soon or late, must go.

Some of you have come forward and been baptized into the church of Christ; by so doing declared that your home is not in this world; that you seek a country out of sight, a heavenly country. Then let us gird up our spiritual loins, take up our staff and travel on till we that better land shall see.

Some of you, I am sorry to know, still seem to stand at a distance, without God and without hope in the world. I know you are as good children as children in common, but will you hear a word from your father while his gray hairs are bending over the grave, connected with the precious admonitions of your mother who has gone before?

I would, then, beseech you to harden not your hearts while it is called today, as in the provocation in the wilderness, but may the Lord give you a thirst for that water whereof, when one drinks, will never thirst again, and for that bread when one eats thereof, will not hunger again; and though we be separated here one by one, may we all meet in that better world, where parting will be no more, but one continual round of joy, peace and happiness, world without end.

Take this, lock it up in your trunks, read twice a year, and keep it as long as you live, and bequeath it to your children.

Yours in hope,
GREEN W. DAVIS
