NVe, my wife, Lillian and my dfo's niece, Miss Hompstone, sailed rom Baltimore, on the North German Joyd line steamer "Main" June 14th ur Bremen, Germany. We had two lundred and forty passengers from learly all parts of our country and rom nearly all professions or vocations n life, a majority of ladies. The ?oyage from Baltimore to Bremen is ibout four thousand miles; we had a I'ery delightful voyage ot twelve days across arriving in Bremen, June 27th. After staying a few days in Bremen my family and 1 bought tickets for our trip, starting entirely independent and alone, first, througli Holland visit? ing Amsterdam, The Hague and thence by way of the Hook of Holland across the North Sea to Harwich, England, thence to London. We spont six days in Holland visiting many his? toric and otherwise places of interest. Among them the Queens Palace and the houso in tho woods where the Peace Congress was held. We spent twelve days in London, and of course saw right much, for we were all the time on the go. The Baptist Worlds Congress to which my church did me the honor to appoint me a delegate, which I waa proud ot, was indeed very interesting to me.

Kingdom, China, India, Japan, Congo South Africa, National Baptist Con vontion, Southern Baptist Convention Regular Baptist, North, Lott Care Convention, Canada, Mexico, Wet Indies, Australia and New Zealand an many times following the speocheB, solo or the national air of the countr would be sung in their own tongue an then repeated in the English languag I was reminded of the account i Pentecost, "every one speaking in h own li nguage." Dr. Curtis Lee Law of Baltimore, responded to the c. made to tho Southern Baptist Co vention and the two hundred delegat present from the Southern Bapti Convention stood up and all sang "1 Country Tis of Thee" and my sc was thrilled as never before. Missie and the best means and measures be adopted for the extension of t Redeemer's Kingdom in the wo seemed to be the key note of the C< gress. I saw many from the Unit States whom I knew and have hei preach. I have been through the ho? of Parliament, Westminster Abb St. Paul's Cathedral, and saw Ba ingham Palace (King Edward and Queen) and many other hist* buildings and places. London is ti a great city, but behind New _ city in many things modern. A twelve days in London, we crof the channel into France and r been here in beautiful Paris four d; sight-seeing.
