MR No. 422—Additional Material on Ellen White and Health Reform

I have no recollection of being in meetings with I. C. Wellcome. It might have been, but I have no acquaintance with him, and never knew him by sight. Before ‘44, I sometimes lost my strength under the blessing of God. I. C. Wellcome may have confounded these exercises of the power of the Spirit of God upon me with the visions. I had no visions until in the winter, near spring, after the time had passed.—Letter 2, 1874, p. 9. (To J. N. Loughborough, August 24, 1874.)

Often while there [at the Rural Health Institute, St. Helena, Calif.] I was compelled to eat meat because there was nothing else that I could eat. At times I would be so faint and dizzy for the want of good wholesome food that I fairly reeled through weakness. [The cook] has not made it her study to prepare wholesome dishes in order that flesh meat as a food may become less and less necessary.—Letter 4, 1884, p. 3. (To Brother and Sister Maxson, February 6, 1884.)

Released April 16, 1975.
