The A.B.P.S. [American Baptist Publication Society of New York] has opened up a very
large stock at this house in Dallas, and I learn from the manager of it, that they are going
to doubble [sic] it right soon. My sympathy is entirely with your work at Nashville. I
have been connected with the Texas Baptist and Herald for about four years, during
which time I have traveled over nearly all of the state, and I know our people well. In the
main, they are not in sympathy with the A.B.P.S. and the way is open wide in Tex. to turn
the tide of Baptist sympathy to your board, if proper effort can be put forth. It is my
judgement [sic], that you ought to employ one man who is suited to the work to travel
over texas [sic] and put your Sunday school series in our Sunday Schools. It can
be done I know, for in connection with the work I am doing, I have often voluntarily
done that thing, without any difficulty whatever. Our people in Tex. are ripe for that sort
of work, but delay will soon turn their sympathies to the other side, and fix them there. I
am very much interested in this matter.
