MR No. 797—Letters to the Beldens on Norfolk Island

Dear Brother and Sister Belden,

[Stephen T. Belden (1829-1906) and his wife, Vina. Stephen Belden's first wife, Sarah (1822-1868), was Ellen White's sister.] I received your letters in the mail that came a week or two ago. We are always glad to hear from you, and all of us are interested in your letters.

I shall not be able to write you a very long letter this time, for I am much burdened with the many other letters that I must write.

We see the necessity of republishing the books that contain the account of our first experience in this work. Those who have come into the truth in recent years know nothing of the experience through which the people of God passed when the importance of proclaiming the first, second, and third angel's messages first came to us.

I am glad that you are able to help the believers on Norfolk Island. Tell them that health reform is necessary to a pure clean breath and a pure, clean current of blood. Tea, coffee, port, and tobacco defile the users. The Lord
