M. W. GILBERT OF NEW YORK. New York City, Feb. 13, 1909 The Mount Olivet Baptist Church, .Manhat tan. New York City, has just Hospd a very successful six weeks' evange listic meeting, which was attended with very happy results. There have been more than one hundred and fifty conversions and an equal number of backsliders have been rechimed while many were received into the fellowship of the church by letters and otherwise. Rev. Dr. Gilbert, the pastor, has been baptizing for three Sundays, both morning and evening. The number of additions to the church has been more than two hun dred. On last Sunday, the 7th imt.. just after the close of the revival. Dr. flil rert preached in the morning on "The Conversion of the Dying Thief." At the close of the sermon, three souls made a profession of their faith in the Lord Jesus and pledged them selves to follow in His footsteps. During .the revival, Dr. Gilbert was ably assisted by the well known col ored evangelist, Rev. S. L. Johnson of Boydton, Va. Rev. Johnson is an earnest and eloquent speaker, thor oughly biblical in his methods, and his work abides after he leaves the field. His work was quite effective and was an object lesson to the col ored people of the city as to the way in which a revival should be con ducted. The congregations at the church are as large as aforetime, and the church is jen joying a peace such as it had never known before in its history. Mount Olivet is the largest Negro Baptist church in the North and its influence for good is widespread. Dr. Gilbert is thoroughly entrenched in the affections of his people arid his ministry is being greatly blessed by the Lord. YOUNG MEN'S LITERARY CLUB.
