The GOSPEL TRUTH
CHARLES G. FINNEY
To James Barlow
2 July 1862
Oberlin. Ohio 2d July 1862.
Dearly Beloved Brother Barlow,
Capt. Moody is here & is just
starting for England,
I have only a moment in which
to say that our health is improving.
I am stronger than for many months
past. We desire much to hear
from you all. Do give our kindest
love to every member of your dear
family, & to those of our dear friends
who may enquire after us. Especially
to Dear Mr. & Mrs Bell. Do write
us soon & tell us about the state
of religion in Bolton.
We think & talk of you a great
deal. I can only add God
bless you all forever.
C. G. Finney
