To Our Leading Medical Workers:—Instruction has now been given me that I must place in the hands of our ministers and physicians the light given me in past years for Dr. Kellogg and his associates, lest the mistakes of former years be repeated.

Our medical missionary workers know but little of the instruction that for the last twenty years the Lord in mercy has been sending to the pioneers in this work. Testimony after testimony has been given in regard to the danger of centering so much in Battle Creek, and the necessity of opening new fields and making plants in many places. Again and again the Lord has declared that it was his will that the company of workers collected in Battle Creek should be broken up into several companies.

Wonderful scenes, with which Satan will be closely connected, will soon take place. God's Word declares that Satan will work
