The following letter written by Rev.
C. 3. -Dawsey, who preached on one
occasion recently at Dials church, will
-be read with interest by many of those
who hea'rd hin besides others who
know of him as a missionary to Brazil
supported by the Spartanburg District
of the Upper South Carolina Metho
Steamship "Southern Cr6ss,"
'Lat. 0, Long. 41.
I am sending to my friends a. little
message from the border line of the
equator. We shall cross it within the
next few moments, or may be we have
already done so. (.However, I have
felt no seecial bump of the shilp.) You
would think of it as being unbearably
hot hei'e, yet it is quite comfortable on
board. There has been no noticeable
change on the ship since we left New
York as far as the heat is concerned.
We are so far out on the ocean-three
or four hundreds miles from the coast
-that it is not easy to detect changes
Thus far the Jord has been with
and has led us. We left Net York on
the 22nd of July. Our steamer, the
"Southern Cross," sailed out of the
harbor about six o'clock in the after
noon. The -putting out to sea, for
those going to a foreign country, Is
an experience not easily forgotten. The
giving up of native land and the -many
friends dwelling there is no easy
task. Our leaving this time was made
easier by the presence of a nephew
and his wife, who came down to the
pier to tell us a last bood bye. We
shall never forget the inspiration of
their faces as they stood on the shore
and waved their handkerchiefs as the
"Bouthern Cross" made her way out
of the harbor and started on her long
journey to the land of the "Southern
'Cross." Thank God for those who
stand oil the shore line of the home
land and pray -for us who try to carry
the message of love to our friends in
A large number of recruits are go
ing out with us-25 in our party, I be
lieve. Of this number three mission
aries and. their families are returning.
They are the -Kennedys, Borchers and
'Dawseys. Three new families are go
ing out for the first time. They are
the Carrs, the Taylors and the LMan
chiesters. Of the Woman's Council
Misses Epps and Brown are returning;
Then there are Misses Brown, Caudill,
Clark and Hardy that are going out as
new recruits for our school work. All
of the new ones impressed us as be
ing workers of whom our church
should be !proud, and I doubt not but
that they are going to make successful
missionaries. You will be interested
to know that two of these new workers
are originally from South Carolina.
Mr. Manchester lived for some time in
Spartanburg, his father being musical
director for a number of years of Con
verse College. Miss Brown Is from
Sumter and lived there until about
two years ago when her mother moved
to Atlanta. Southi Carolina Method
ism has made a large contribution to
our missionary enterpr'ise in Brazil.
I have been kcept abusy on board try
ing to help 'Mrs. Dawsey see after the
children, but even so I have found
time to read a number of good books.
Among others, "The Case Against
Spiritualism," by Stoddard, and "A
-Handful of Stars" by Boreham. I am
interested .in spIritualIsm because it
Is one of the great problems thlat we
are' now having to face in Hrzazil.
Greater In many resplects than the
problem of Romanism. Fe'w of the
loaders of South Amerkca would1 try
to defend Rome tod-iy yet there arc
quite 'a num~'ber who di. .Jrena Spir't
nalism. The last book mentioned. "A
Handful of Stars" is one of the most
inspirational that I have read in many
a day. Mr. Borchamn ls one of the
grpat inspirational writer' e of today.
