My dear Brethren: Grace and peace through our Beloved Master!
In our No. 131 May 1966 paper we indicated our intention of further discussion of the above subject, and it seems expedient that we do so now. Inasmuch as the Great Multitude is afflicted with ‘leprosy’ in varying forms (numerous spiritual contagions), it is no problem at all for one reasonably informed to offer expansive discussion of their maladies, although we assure our readers that such a task gives us just no pleasure at all; we would much prefer more winsome subjects. But, just as Brother Russell was the only man in Christendom – so far as we know who offered extensive discussion of this group – and the Epiphany Messenger was the only one since 1916 who analyzed them in detail – so now it seems we ourselves are in much the same position – although some of the sects in Little Babylon do occasionally broach the subject in limited manner.
Much objection arises in various quarters as we mention certain brethren as contained in the Great Multitude, the Great Multitude being those people who have lost their crowns and their position in the Body of Christ, and have been remanded to a greatly inferior position to the one they once occupied. It is claimed that we are 'Judging before the time'; but we observe that we ourselves judge nothing, although we believe it is not only proper, but our unpleasant duty, to make open note of such judging as the Lord manifests that He has done so. Therefore, Jesus told us, “By their fruits you will discover them.” (Matt. 7:16, Dia.) This statement would be a rank empty deception if it were not possible for us now to “discover” those producing tainted fruit; and the statement would certainly be leading us astray if we are guilty of 'evil surmising' to observe such contagions when they appear. Here is Brother Russell's comment on the text: “Some people, like thistles, are always scattering seeds that cause trouble; false doctrines, evil surmisings, errors.”
It is well, however, to bear in mind that Brother Russell properly taught there are only two reasons for disfellowshiping any one – namely, gross immorality, or gross doctrinal deflection. An example of the first is to be found in 1 Cor. 5:1-5; and an example of the second is recorded in 1 Tim. 1:20 – “Hymenius and Alexander; whom I delivered up to the Adversary, that they may be taught not to blaspheme!” They had made shipwreck of the Faith (the Truth). But in this time in which we are living it is well to consider that minor vices – general character blemishes – are not to be regarded as sufficient cause to relegate any one to the Great Multitude; it is only gross and persistent revolutionism against the Truth, or its arrangements that is the sure touchstone. If we assume total depravity as Zero, and perfection of mind and body as One Hundred, it would be readily apparent that there will be found many degrees and many different varieties of “wounds, bruises and putrefying sores” (Isa. 1:6) prevalent in peoples of different races and widely-divergent social orders. “Man looketh on the outward appearance”; and, since chiefly “the poor of this world, rich in faith, are called to be heirs of salvation” (1 Cor. 1:26; Jas. 2:5), we may often find much to be desired in some members of the General Church, especially so at their inception into God's Household. And just as it may be possible to evaluate some too highly for their education, outward refinement, wealth and position, so it is equally possible to rate others too severely because they lack such qualities. Therefore, the TRUTH itself is the only reliable guide we have to “discover” others by their fruits. Thus Bro. Russell has declared we should regard most highly those whose zeal for growth in knowledge, accompanied by a corresponding growth in Grace, is manifesting their true heart condition.
THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANT
In Matt. 25:14-30 our Lord gave the Parable of the Talents, describing a householder who committed five talents to one servant, two to another, and one to the third. Brother Russell interpreted these talents as opportunities of service in the Lord's work, based upon our various capacities – the five-talented man being one who has wealth, influence, intellectual power, education and ability for public utterance. St. Paul was one of these, as was also Brother Russell; and it would be a very logical display of executive ability for our Lord to commit and to expect – more from such persons than He would from the two-talented man or the one-talented man. As the Parable continues, when the Householder returned and asked for an accounting from his servants, the one with five talents said he had gained five more in his Master's absence, thus repaying him with ten talents. Likewise, the one with two talents had gained other two; and to each of these the Master said, “Well done, good and faithful servant.... enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” But the one to whom but one talent had been entrusted made profuse excuse for hiding his one talent “in the earth” (typical of those who are engulfed in the cares, pleasures, and wiles of this social order); he had gained nothing with it in his master's absence. For this he was soundly upbraided, his talent was taken from him and given to the one with the ten talents, and he was cast into “outer darkness” – to experience “weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
Jesus defines this man as “the unprofitable servant”; and Brother Russell interprets him as a representative of the Great Multitude – especially here in the end of this Age. The “outer darkness” would be the error into which this Class is now allowed to fall – the same being revealed by their many “strong delusions” (2 Thes. 2:11) – such being “their fruits” by which we may “discover” them. Here then is another view of the Great Multitude – in addition to those already given in our May paper.
VARIATIONS IN STANDING
At this point we emphasize that not all the Great Multitude have always been “one-talent” people. Quite a few of them were five-talented when they first responded to the Gospel call to “enter the House of the Lord.” (Psa. 122:1). As examples, we cite St. (?) Augustine (about 400 AD), whom some rate as the greatest intellect of fallen man in all history. Also, John Calvin – considered one of the best religious minds of this Age. And Martin Chemnitz – in some respects apparently more capable than Martin Luther himself, with whom he collaborated in his conflict with the Papacy. How, then, do such men eventually become classed with the one-talent persons? Certainly, not because they were lacking in zeal – or because their opportunities of service toward the public were taken from them. Generally ‘kinsmen’ have been putting forth great effort to build up Little Babylon. But in such efforts they have been synonymous with Azazel's Goat “one goat for Azazel” (Lev. 16:8, margin). Azazel means Perverter, and this Goat this Unprofitable Servant – has been the means all during the Age of perverting (distorting with error) every one of the Stewardship Truths that the fully-faithful Little Flock leaders have propounded. This is set forth in excellent detail in Epiphany Volume 8.
What, then, is represented by “taking away even that which he hath?” (v. 29) We answer that such lose all part in the Sin Offering; they lose all opportunity of ever regaining the crown they have lost: they lose forever their standing in the priestly Body of Christ. They become “profane persons, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.... He found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.” (Heb. 12:16,17) Stating it tersely, they lose their birthright – in exact fashion as a disinherited son loses his standing in his father's estate.
But the sentence goes even beyond that: He is cast into “outer darkness” into error – out of the Holy and fellowship with the Priesthood, abandoned to Azazel “into the wilderness.” (Lev. 16:21) As they leave the Holy, they automatically become separated from the Lampstand, whose fuel is the holy oil (representing the Holy Spirit – the spirit of understanding – of this Gospel Age). And losing the oil in their lamps (Matt. 25:8) is just another way of saying they lose the spirit of understanding –this being the direct cause of them going into “outer darkness” (error).
In their ejection from the Holy, they also become separated from the Table of Shewbread, that bread typing the Sarah features of the Abrahamic Covenant (Little Flock promises). They can no longer feed upon that bread, because the Sarah promises no longer apply to them. And finally, they are forbidden longer to minister at the Golden Altar, because that service is exclusively for the Priesthood – “much incense with the prayers of Saints” (Rev. 8:3).
Because this Great Multitude “admitted not the love of the Truth, God will send to them an energy of delusion” – outer darkness – error (2 Thes. 2:10,11, Dia.); and the Berean Comment for this text states: “That which, from certain standpoints, has the appearance of truth.... Giving then over to error, which they prefer to the Truth.... Great delusions are just before us, and some of these may come closest upon those having the most light of Present Truth.” There can be no mistaking Brother Russell's opinion on this subject, and with which we are in full agreement. Therefore, we should ever be wary of any interpretations coming from such people that are in any way contrary to the interpretations given us by Brother Russell.
Such erroneous teachings by the Great Multitude are typed by the “strange fire” offered by Nadab and Abihu, as recorded in Lev. 10:1-7, and for which they were destroyed. It would seem that these two were intoxicated with strong drink when they committed their infamous impudent act, because the command is immediately given to Aaron in verse 9: “Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the Tabernacle of the Congregation, lest ye die.... that ye may put a difference between Holy and Unholy, and between unclean and clean. And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes (truths) which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses (type of the Star Members).”
Psalms 91 is known as The Psalm of Saints' Security; and in verse 6 of that Psalm this “strange fire” (false doctrine) is described as “the pestilence that walketh in darkness,” and in verse 11 as “any plague.” To the fully faithful the promise is sure that they need have no fear of such “pestilence”; nor shall “any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” Among some of the more 'leprous' “Strong delusions” of the Great Multitude at the present time are:
(1) The Great Multitude are the ‘dedicated’ restitutionists, the children of the New Covenant, when their parents are not yet even married – have not yet celebrated “the marriage supper of the Lamb”—Rev. 19;9;
(2) Consecrated Epiphany Campers (also restitutionists) having their names already written in the Book of Life (before the Kingdom book has even been opened);
(3) Such Campers partaking of the Memorial (whereas partaking of the emblems of that Memorial now by the prospective Elect is, among other things, their solemn vow to “walk in His steps”; but by restitutionists – if they partake of it at all – in the Mediatorial reign will be only an expression of gratitude and a promise of obedience to the righteous laws of that reign, and not in any sense as a Covenant by Sacrifice);
(4) Justification outside the linen curtain (outside the righteousness of Christ);
(5) Repudiation of the Chronology as given through That Servant;
(6) The same group that has invented Campers Consecrated now revolutionizing against the process of the Abandonment to Azazel;
(7) Revolutionizing against the “Epiphany-Tire of Trouble” period being identical;
(8) Revolutionizing against the Truth that gross revolutionism against the Truth or its arrangements is the only method for recognizing crown-losers, their contention being that a date manifested them all in one instantaneous swoop, that date being October 22, 1950.
These are only a few of the more outstanding “strong delusions”; there are dozens of others. But, as Brother Johnson has so aptly observed, When these people fall into the hands of Azazel they talk all sorts of nonsense!
SOME OTHER OBSERVATIONS
It is well to keep In mind that it is not the Great Multitude's acceptance and spread of false doctrines (“strange fire”) that causes them to lose their crowns; it is instead the loss of their crowns (and the ejection from the Holy) that separates them from the Golden Lampstand in the Holy, causing them to lose the “oil in their lamps” (“the spirit of understanding”), which in turn causes them to go astray from the Truth which once sanctified them, and to invent false doctrines. Once they are delivered over to Satan (Azazel) by the removal of Priestly fellowship and all brotherly help and favor of the Priests, they either rebel, or support rebels against the Truth which once sanctified them. They also then develop sectarian systems; and this has been the direct cause of the appearance of Big and Little Babylon upon the stream of time, with the resultant persecution of the fully-faithful Little Flock (and in this latter part of the Epiphany, by one group who attempt the complete elimination of the Little Flock by false teaching), who have naturally opposed such actions. (Isa. 66:5) During the Age this condition became so pronounced that, despite the gallant efforts of such as Arius, Marsiglio, Claudius of Turin, Martin Luther, John Wessel, Thomas Cranmer, John Wesley and other “Good Soldiers,” the apostasy from the teachings of the Apostles became so pronounced that the general symmetry and beauty of the Truth in the Jewish Harvest was completely lost; and it was not until the Harvest in the end of this Age when That Servant once more restored “the unity of the faith” to God's people, which enabled them to “give to every man a reason for the Hope” they cherished.
It should be stressed here that the Gospel-Age Perverters (Azazel means Perverter) did not reach that condition through the failure of the Lord to love and help them sufficiently, for “He is faithful that promised,” not being willing that any should perish – or be demoted, lose their class standing. Even in their wayward state He has been solicitous of their welfare, which prompted St. Paul to counsel the Corinthian brethren to “forgive and comfort” the one they had delivered unto Satan (Azazel) for the destruction of his flesh, “lest such an one be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow” (2 Cor. 2:7), and suffer complete loss of life. “Wherefore, I entreat you publicly to confirm your love towards him.” Clearly enough, the Lord wishes their recovery from the clutches of Azazel.
With this Class their love for the Lord and their love for “the pleasures of sin for a season” keeps them in constant turmoil – so much so that the Apostle James describes them as “double–minded .... unstable in all their ways”(Jas. 1:8) – “like a wave of the sea, agitated and tossed by the wind.” And – “let not that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord” – until he mends his ways and extricates himself from the clutches of Azazel. It is their very doublemindedness that brings them into the hands of Azazel; and this is the evil that must be corrected if there is to be any hope at all for them. Here is something from Brother Russell on this same matter:
“What of those who make this arrangement and then fail to make the sacrifice?....Those who do not go on to give themselves fully in sacrifice are delivered over to the Adversary to buffet them until their flesh shall be destroyed – until these earthly clinging tendencies which were holding them from full loyalty to God are broken down and their minds become fully submissive and in harmony with God.... In every case it is necessary that the flesh be destroyed. If the will is overcome by the flesh, the result will be the death of the will also; that is, the second death.... Such are not counted in with the sacrificers, yet they are saved “so as by fire” on the spirit plane, in the day of the Lord Jesus.” (Reprints 5056)
And further by Brother Russell: “But sad disappointments attach to the experiences of this company: it is because they fear the reproaches of Christ that they shirk present privileges and opportunities for walking with Him in white in the “sufferings of this present time”: behold, they not only miss the present joy and rejoicing of those who are faithful, but eventually they must come through still greater sufferings, if they would attain even to a lower place.”
Based upon statements of the Apostle Paul, the Apostle James, and Brother Russell's emphasis of their teachings as above given, Brother Johnson reiterates and elaborates the subject in E-15:525:
“As in none of the Great Company do these forms of the rod prove sufficient fully to free their Holy Spirit from the bondage of developed worldliness, selfishness, error and sin, and in a large number hardly fazes them at all, and variously but incompletely affects the rest of them, the Lord resorts to a second set of untoward experiences, which are calculated finally to deliver their New Creatures from the bondage into which their unfaithfulness to their Justification, or consecration, or both, has brought them. He delivers them over to Satan, called in Lev. 16:8, 10, 21, 22 Azazel (averter, perverter), for the destruction of the flesh that their New Creature, the Spirit, might be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus (1 Cor. 5:1-5, 1 Tim. 1:19,20). It will be noted that 1 Cor. 5:1-5 shows that for evil conduct delivery to Satan was made, while in 1 Tim. 1:19,20, it is shown that such delivery was made for setting aside the Truth and teaching error in Its place. Their delivery to Satan implies that God temporarily abandons them, and lets Satan buffet them, until their fleshly minds are destroyed.... Filling their minds with more or less error (such as those set out aforegoing—JJH) Satan makes them busy themselves with false religious work, works of false propaganda, of building false religious sects. He deceives them into believing they will accomplish great works, win great numbers, gain great favor, etc. (such as converting Israel before the Great Multitude are cleansed, putting Restitutionists into the Book of Life now –before that Book is yet opened, etc.—JJH). The upshot of it all, however, is great disappointments, troubles, losses, frustrations and failures, wrecking their ambitions.”
It will be noted that Brother Russell and Brother Johnson make no exceptions concerning the delivery of all of them to Satan (Azazel), no allowance whatever being made for the degree of their perversity. In all of them “He brought down their heart with labor” (Psa. 107:12), because they rebelled (revolutionized) against the words of God – the Truth. We stress this matter here because R. G. Jolly is now hinting (see his article in the March-April 1966 PT, “The Cleansing From Leprosy”) that he and his 'kinsmen' do not need the process so clearly described by the Apostles and by That Servant and the Epiphany Messenger; but this is just another evidence that he also “rebels against the words of Cod” just as do his fellows – and should be all the more convincing to unbiased observers of his present tragic condition.
Many Scriptures stress the marked difference between the Great Multitude and the fully-faithful followers of the Lamb. In Rev. 7:15 the former are described as servants in the Temple; whereas, Christ and His faithful Bride are the “living stones” that comprise that Temple – the Levites and the Priests in the antitype of Solomon’s grand temple. Here then is another unanswerable proof that the Great Multitude cannot possibly be an earthly group (as depicted by the Witnesses), because the Temple (Christ and His Church) is in Heaven, and these Levites – the Great Multitude – serve in that Temple. Brother Russell always concurred in this conclusion.
After the death of the Apostles, when the various sects arose in Christendom, the doctrine of Restitution was completely lost, and this in turn made way for many baneful errors – eternal torment as the wages of sin, the immortality of the soul, the Trinity, etc. – so that the resultant confusion was rightly termed Babylon. But, when That Servant appeared, he produced order from the chaos, and produced “the unity of the faith” (the Truth in symmetry and reason). However, since his death the Truth has again been bandied about by the various Truth groups to such an extent that there is again Babylon, confusion, on every hand. This is the direct result of the work of the sixth Slaughter-weapon man of Ezek. 9:2, who, since 1916, has “defiled the house, and filled the courts with the slain” – through the Revolutionism against the Truth, which has been “making manifest the counsels of hearts,” revealing the “fruits” by which we may “discover” them.
And to him that “hath an ear to hear, let him hear what the spirit saith unto the churches”: Once more “attain to the unity of the faith.... be infants no longer, tossed and whirled about with every wind of that teaching which is in the trickery of men, by cunning craftiness in systematic deception; but grow up in all things into Him.... no longer walk, even as the Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having been darkened in the understanding” of the Unity of the Faith—Eph. 4:13-18, Dia.
Sincerely your brother

QUESTION OF GENERAL INTEREST
QUESTION: – Has Brother Jolly now given the real truth on the Book of Life as respecting Youthful Worthies and Campers Consecrated?
ANSWER: – No, he has not; in fact his latest utterances on this subject are simply a jumble of words – so garbled that nobody – not even himself can determine whence he comes, or whither he goes on the subject. He who discerns clearly teaches clearly; and – conversely – he who teaches unclearly does not himself discern clearly. Note Brother Russell's comment on this subject:
''All found written In the Lamb's Book of Life will be delivered forever, from all enemies: Those written as worthy (the Ancient Worthies—JJH) during the Jewish and Patriarchal Ages, and those written during the Gospel Age, and those who will be written during the Millennial Age.” (Parousia Vol. 3, p. 62)
All that Brother Johnson has given Is simply an elaboration of the foregoing; and it should be clear enough to any who are properly schooled In Present Truth that this would exclude any except the Elect Classes from any standing in any Book of Life during this Faith Age. The Youthful Worthies can begin to inscribe their names in the Book of Life now because that Book has been opened unto them as one of the Elect Classes in this Epiphany period; whereas, according to both Brother Russell and Brother Johnson, no Restitutionist can yet begin to inscribe his name in the Book of Life, because their Book is not yet opened – and won't be open until the New Covenant is inaugurated. Of course, we should expect just such confusion from R. G. Jolly. Here is Brother Johnson's conclusion regarding all such “gazers”:
“God has never given local elders or non-star members the privilege of seeing a new doctrine. This privilege is limited exclusively to our Lord acting in the star-members. Any attempt on the part of a non-star-membered teacher as the first one to work out a doctrine would be speculation, and would, therefore, not result in uncovering a new truth, but would result in error.”
Disregard of the above warning has led R. G. Jolly into 'inventing' his Campers Consecrated; and this in turn has resulted in new errors on the Book of Life, and other errors. This is just what we should expect under the circumstances. In this Jan-Feb. Present Truth, pages 12 & 13 are three Questions and Answers on this subject in a desperate wordy attempt to fit his present errors into the simple truth that Brother Russell expressed in four succinct lines quoted aforegoing. We suggest to our readers who may have a Present Truth available to read those answers, compare them with what Brother Russell so tersely stated; then determine for themselves which expressions they wish to believe.
When R. G. Jolly gave his erroneous answer at the Chicago Convention last October a year, it was so very evident that he did not know what Brother Russell or Brother Johnson had taught on the subject; so he quickly gave error in his answer. Now, in a desperate effort to save face, he uses more than a full page in the Present Truth to muddy the Truth stream. If he really wanted his readers to understand this subject, why did he not just quote the direct and concise statements of Brother Russell and Brother Johnson – just as we have done in our presentations of it? Please see our December 1, 1965 paper, pp. 3-4 for Brother Johnson's treatise on the Book of Life (a copy free upon request). As a result of his “strange fire” (false doctrine) – Campers Consecrated – he must of necessity go from one error to another, and lose much of the Truth that once sanctified him. We assume that he was clear at one time on the Books of Life for the Elective and Restitution salvations – but it is clearly manifest that he no longer understands this truth. When any one other than the Star Members presents a new doctrine and persists in that course, he receives the “strong delusion” (2 Thes. 2:11) – the punishment meted out by the Lord to all such – and loses the “spirit of understanding.'' (Matt. 25:1-8 – See Berean Comment). J. F. Rutherford's course was persisted in to the extent that he lost everything. It is our wish and prayer that this will not be the case with R. G. Jolly.

Dear Brother Hoefle: Grace and Peace in Jesus' dear Name!
It is Sunday morning and I hope to leave in about 45 minutes and will, D.v., give out some tracts. I always get a little nervous and shaky beforehand – but feel happy afterwards....... I thought perhaps you would like to add the enclosed name and address to your list. I don't know this Brother....... I read over the December 1966 paper. I liked it. I was noticing about Bro. Jolly speaking (on page 6) of the ‘higher class,’ under heading His ‘Higher’ Class. I was wondering if he was thinking of the question and answer on page 446 of E Vol. 4 where it says (Question 48) that Youthful Worthies are to remember that the Great Company in God's esteem is a higher class than they. On the other side I notice Brother Johnson commends Youthful Worthies for assisting in the rebuke toward the Catholic Church (page 449 of E Vol. 4) – also I notice on p. 393, par. 20, in speaking of Ruth, Brother Johnson says there was an antitypical spitting done – “As the Youthful Worthies have come to see the Truth on the subject they have done it to the Society directors and editors” – using the Truth to the “disparagement and disgrace of the pertinent person......

Dear Brother Hoefle: – Grace and peace through our Beloved Lord! Our dear Sister McNeil passed away Feb. 4 at 9:00 p.m., and was buried Sunday, Feb. 5 at 4:00 p.m., beside my mother (Sister Condell). The LHMM brethren were at their Convention, so were not privileged to be at the funeral. Bro. ------- conducted the service. Since her passing was expected, her funeral was arranged and coffin made – and all that was necessary was her funeral and burial.
A few days before her death she gave me a message for you and the Bible House family: she earnestly urged that you and the others be not weary in well doing but to continue to keep up the “good fight” – especially in antitypical Gideon's Second Battle unto its completion, until Jericho's wall is broken down and God's people set free.
She had several severe attacks of pain – during which she would become delirious, but would always become rational when over. She would then remember and speak on the things touching on salvation for all. A half hour before her passing she asked me to sing Hymn 295, in which she tried to join in; then she asked me to pray. I made a short prayer, for words failed me. Then her pain came back – lasting perhaps less than a minute, after which she finished her earthly course. I was alone with her, so I did the last thing I could do and left the room woke my daughter and told her then went to the gate to see if I could see any one. I was just in time to see Brother's ---- van enter his yard. He came and looked at the body and then notified the others.
That's the account, dear Brother, and I will add for myself that she was an example of the believers in the midst of it all. All of us have suffered a great loss – and I in a very special way. She was a great strength and encouragement to me with her admonitions to righteousness and truth.
Please give my Christian love to all at the Bible House. Yours by His Grace, ------- (JAMAICA)
“Faithful unto death” (Rev. 2:10):
Dear Sister McNeil was reportedly over 105 years old, had met and become well acquainted with Brothers Russell and Johnson. In January 1957, when R. G. Jolly attempted a four-hour continuous “profusion of words” at a Crofts Hill meeting, she was then past 95, but yet strong enough in mind and spirit to “withstand him to the face” on some of his errors. She had also been a life-long friend of beloved Brother and Sister Condell (also departed); and the passing of these faithful brethren leaves a most lonely feeling of great loss with those of us who knew them. Indeed, “Blessed are those dead who die in the Lord; Yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow after them.” (Rev. 14:13, Dia.) We believe what Brother Russell says in Parousia Vol. 3, p. 237 is apropos in her case:
“The mission of the feet, which is no insignificant part of the Kingdom work, will be accomplished. Though their message is popularly hated and discredited and they are despised by the world as fools, for Christ's sake, as all his faithful servants have been throughout the Gospel Age, yet, before they all are 'changed' and joined to the glorified members beyond the veil, they, as agents of the Kingdom, will have left such records of that Kingdom and its present and future work as will be most valuable information to the world and to the undeveloped and overcharged children of God, who though consecrated to God, will have failed to so run as to obtain the prize of our high calling (and we earnestly hope and trust that her record of faithfulness to the Lord, the Truth and the Brethren – and his experience with her – will prove to be 'valuable information' for R. G. Jolly and his kinsmen.—JJH).
