    Miss Harmon’s Visit to Poland, Maine

    Miss Harmon had been shown that she must go to Poland, Maine, and narrate her vision. The day after this third vision, unexpectedly to all, her brother-in-law drove up to the door of her father’s house, and proposed to take her to Poland. While there she held a meeting in which she related the vision. Hazen Foss, 15See Chapter XI, pp. 182, 183. being in despair, could not be induced to attend the service, but with his ear near to the door outside, he heard her recount her vision, and said, “The vision she related is as near like what was shown to me as two persons could describe the same thing.” The next morning he unexpectedly met Miss Harmon, and told her to be “faithful in bearing the burden, and in relating the testimonies the Lord should give her, and she would not be forsaken of God.” To others he said, “That is the instrument on whom the Lord has laid this burden.” He surely ought to know, as he had seen the person in the vision in which he was told that the burden was “taken from” him.GSAM 212.2

    Miss Harmon’s work from that time was in going from place to place in the New England States, relating what had been shown her. In some instances she was told, in vision, where to go, and also told what difficulties she would meet. Her messages were, especially, reproofs for those who were drifting into the doctrine of the spiritual advent of Christ, and encouraging all to hold on to the past experience.GSAM 213.1

    She says of her experience: “Some refrained wholly from labor, and disfellowshipped all those who would not receive their views on this point.... God revealed these errors to me in vision, and sent me to his erring children to declare them; but many of them wholly rejected the message, and charged me with conforming to the world. On the other hand, the nominal Adventists charged me with fanaticism, and I was falsely, and by some wickedly, represented as being the leader of the fanaticism that I was actually laboring to do away.” 16Early Writings, 72. Of this we shall learn more fully in the succeeding chapter.GSAM 213.2
