New Germany, N. S.,
Feb’y 12, 1909.
Dear Dr. Weidner:
It has been some time since I have written to you. I have therefore concluded to drop you a line to let you know that I have not given up my course of reading and study which you were largely instrumental in influencing me to undertake, but have been plugging away at it as assiduously as opportunity would permit. Owing to the fact that about a year and a half ago the Editorship of our Synodical organ, the Nova Scotia Lutheran, was thrust upon me, my time for reading and study has been to a considerable extent curtailed; yet, since writing you last, I have finished the following books:
Knauth’s Conservative reformation, re-read
The Faith of our Father’s – Cardinal gibbons
The Lutheran Movement in England – Jacobs
The Christian Life – Thomas Arnold
Church Member’s Manual – C.H.L. Schuetter, re-read
Com. on Hebrews, vol. 1 – Lindsay
Doom Eternal – Renensayder
The Eddyite – Geo. W. Luntilt
Locke on the Church – Horne
Homiletics – Hoppin
House postil, vol. 1, Eng. Translation – Luther
I am also at present reading Dr. Lay’s Exposition of the Augsburg Confession and Broadus on Preaching.
Things ecclesiastical are moving along about as usual up here, though we have recently sustained the loss of a good man in the removal of Pastor McCreery, to Morrisburg, Ont. We want a good strong man, strict in the Lutheran Doctrine and practice as his successor at Bridgewater, which is the natural centre of Lutheranism in Nova Scotia and is a parish of the greatest promise among us. Could you not help us out in the matter? Hoping to hear from you soon, I am
