    Ellen G. White Statements Not Reprinted

    The reader will have observed that three communications from the pen of Mrs. E. G. White were included in A Word to the “Little Flock.”AWLF 25.1

    First, there is the letter appearing on pages 11 and 12, addressed to Eli Curtis, in reply to his request for Mrs. White’s comments on his prophetic positions as presented in articles in the Day-Dawn. In this letter Mrs. White refers to his views on such points as the two resurrections, the Holy City, the cleansing of the sanctuary, etc. This published letter was never reprinted, as the fuller presentation of her views on these subjects obviated the necessity of its being repeated.AWLF 25.2

    The second communication from Mrs. White, found on pages 14-18, is an account of her first vision under the title, “To the Remnant Scattered Abroad.” This was written December 20, 1845, as a personal letter to Enoch Jacobs, and was first published by the recipient in The Day-Star, January 24, 1846. Then on April 6, 1846, it was reprinted in broadside form by James White and H. S. Gurney. The statement as it appears in A Word to the “Little Flock,” with the exception of minor editorial changes and added scripture references, is identical with the full account of the vision as first printed.AWLF 25.3

    It may be of interest to note that Mrs. White states in a postscript of her letter to Mr. Jacobs, that this account “was not written for publication,” and commenting later she wrote, “Had I for once thought it was to be spread before the many readers of your paper, I should have been more particular.” - E. G. Harmon, in The Day-Star, March 14, 1846.AWLF 25.4

    The third Ellen G. White communication, occupying pages 18-20, is a reprint of a letter addressed to Joseph Bates, presenting an account of a vision which was given April 7, 1847, in which Mrs. White was shown the most holy place in the heavenly sanctuary, and was then carried into the future and viewed scenes connected with the conflicts and victory of the church. This was first published in broadside form by Elder Bates accompanied by his remarks found on page 21 of A Word to the “Little Flock.” Scripture references were also added by James White to this third E. G. White communication as it went into print in this pamphlet.AWLF 25.5
