Dr. Kellogg:

Dear Brother,

I have a most earnest desire that you shall stand on vantage ground.

Recently I have been unable to do much, but I have received special help from the great Healer. He has given me power as I have borne my testimony before the people. During my stay in Philadelphia, I spoke twice, once in each of the tents pitched in that city. The Lord gave me strength to address those assembled, and I praise His Holy Name.

To keep up an internal warfare would please the enemy and greatly retard the work that the Lord would have done in our world.

I have said over and over again that there must be unity between the gospel ministry and the medical missionary work. If you and your associates draw off to do the work that you have been doing, I shall be compelled to publish the warnings that the Lord has been giving you for the past twenty years.
