deepest disappointment. The earth
was parched, the whole land cried out
'for rain, and the crops were being
ruined for lack of moisture. It was
under these depressing conditions that
Pilgrim Father Bradford called together
the little band of settlers and set apart
a day to be devoted to fasting and
prayer that the glassy skies might be
come cloud covered and the windows
of heaven be opened to give life to the
thirst dying fields.
It did not look promising for a day
of thanksgiving, and yet circumstances
changed the day appointed for fasting
and prayer to one of rejoicing, feasting
and thankfu, ness. The pilgrims were
in the very act of pr.yin- for rain
