Letter From Rev. J. E. Jackson
179 N. Szechuen Road,
September, 12, 1919.
Dear Brother McKie:
Our boat reached Shanghai safely.
We were able to get breakfast and
be on the shore by ten o'clock Tues
day, September 9. This was Monday
in the States. When we crossed the
international date line-meridian
180 degrees-we skipped one day,
so in China ic is about eleven hours
earlier than in America. The voyage
was grand. But the prettiest part of
it was also the most unpleasant. For
two days the wind blew fiercely and
the waves broke against the ship's
bow in great force, and often splash
ed thirty feet high. At the same time,
the boat was dipping up and down
thirty or more feet and rocking too,
so we were traveling in three direc
tions. This was just a little too much
for the heads of some of us. They got
too heavy. I kept my balance well
and was not seasick. But some of our
party "fed the fish." We saw a few
whales as they came partly out of
the water. The silver sprays breaking
in the air were wonderful and pretty.
I know that many prayers have
been uttered for me. They bore us
safely across 5,000 miles of deep,
blue sea, but I do not expect them to
^^end with the voyage. Probably I need
prayer more now than while I was
sailing. It means much to know that
the folks behind are keeping the
"home fires burning." But they can
also help us keep the foreign fires all
On reaching Japan and China
alike, I saw men working as beasts
of burden. They were drawing great
heavy loads of lumber, and almost
anything. Ropes around the should
er, no hats, almost naked, no shoes,
and the sun hot enough to cause sun
stroke to a newcomer. These sights
prick the heart. I wonder what Jesus
thinks of such. Most of the riding in
town, except on street cars, is in
ricsha carts, two wheels, shafts for
one man to pull. In Shanghai it costs
about twenty cents an hour. But
there are some autos, bicycles and
motor cycles. Horses are few, and in
Shanghai pull carriages, in Japan
pull wagons. Here we have big auto
Shanghai is the New York of
China. It is a great city and almost
anything can be found here.
We have a fine mission. Our com
pound consists of one church, two
schools, three two-story brick dwell
ings electric lighted, gardens, tennis
courts and boys' play ground.
Had two lessons in language. It is
not so hard. I may try to preach in
Love and best wishes to all.

Reasons for Thanksgiving
From Rev. F. A. Weaver.
Please give me space in your paper
to speak to the public again about
Thanksgiving Day. I think it ought to
be a great day in the eye ol" the na
tion, when we can see so many bless
ings that God has bestowed upon us
during the last twelve months. Moth
ers and fathers and kindred ought to
return thanks unto God for the day
the armistice was signed, when our
boys were standing at the door of
death, the Lord shut that door at the
right time and sent many of them
back home. That day brought jubilee
to the world, so much so that I think
the day of Thanksgiving ought to be
changed to the 11th of November.
We should be thankful to our
Heavenly Father that we are yet in
the land of the living ,and can find
bread to eat. While many of our
homes have been made to mourn on
account of the visit of the Death An
gel and other troubles, such as riots,
we hope that it will be a thing of the
past, and that peace and harmony
will reign thoughout the nation, and
we hope our boys will remember that
God was with them overseas and that
He will be with them here. Pray and
wait on God and let Jesus fix it for
you. He knows just what to do, He
knows when to do and how to do. Re
sorting to violence will not bring the
blessing from above, disobediece is
the cause of the plague in the land
today. If the nations would turn to
God, they would have the power to
kill every boll weevil on earth. Pray
and wait, the darkest part of the
morning is just before day.
We are thankful that peace is here
in our midst as far as race riots are
concerned. And let Us say as one of
old, "Let others do as they will, but
as for me and my house, we will
serve the Lord." Remember, disobe
dience is a very good word, but it
carries with it a bad prefix, it leads
to disgrace and to death, to dishonor
and to dissatisfaction.
Turn and read the 6th chapter of
Galatians, "Brethren, if a man be
overtaken in a fault, ye which are
spiritual, restore such a one in the
ipirit of meekness, considering thy
self; be not deceived, God is not
mocked, for whatsoever a man sow
?th, that shall he also reap." Let us
return thanks to God for the Execu- j
tive Head of the nation, who walked j
the bloody fields of Europe for the j
jood of humanity. May the Lord !
bless the Red Cross workers, who
have done so much for suffering hu
manity. May the Lord bless all na
tions with peace and posperity.
Yours for the cause,
Rev. F. A. Weaver.

Governors Will Talk Fertilizer
With a view to getting government
assistance for the transportation of
the ingredients that enter into the
manufacture of commercial fertili
zers,- the governors of the Southern
states are to have a conference in
Savannah during the Commercial
Congress, December 8-10. The con
ference is called by Gov. Dorsey, of
Georgia, chairman of the House of
Southern Governors. Attending the
conference also will be representa
tives of the leading fertilizer houses.
Governor Cooper is in receipt of a
letter from Gov. Dorsey, calling the
conference for Savannah on Decem
ber 9th. The following is the call is
sued by Gov. Dorsey for the confer
ence on the shipping problems faced
by the fertilizer companies:
It has been called to my attention
that fertilizer companies are exper
iencing difficulty in securing the ne
cessary ingredients for the manufac
ture of commecial fertilizer, the dif
ficulty being largely that of trans
It is also the opinion of those who
have investigate'd the subject that if
the manufacturers could get govern
ment assistance in the matter of
transportation of the ingredients, it
would greatly increase the output
and at the same time substantially
reduce the cost to the consumer.
Being very desirous of cooperating
with the commercial fertilizer com
panies in secui-ing this government
aid, and with this end in view, it is
my purpose to lay this matter before
the House of Southern Governors
which meets in Savannah Dec. 8-10.
I am requesting the said governors to
notify the leading fertilizer compa
nies in their respective states to have
their representatives meet with the
morning of Dec. 9th for a discussion
House of Southern Governors on the
of this matter.
I sincerely trust that you will at
tend this meeting.
Yours truly, Hugh M. Dorsey, Gov
ernor of Geogia and chairman House
of Southern Governors.
