GLASGOW, 24th June 1891.
MY DEAR MR. M'INTYRE,
I am very very thankful for your decision, and not I only, but very many here. If you knew all, I think you would recognise the Lord's answer to continued prayer in the whole matter.
I have passed through the pain of bidding farewell to an attached and prayerful flock, but it may be a step higher in sanctification. I heard also in my own case of three distinct cases of blessing to unsaved ones that were brought out clearly after I had left them. The Lord Himself was the Shepherd who gathered in the wanderers, when their under-shepherd was away, and I am not sure but that the presence of the under-shepherd might have been a hindrance.
Let us go on praying for each other, dear brother and fellow-soldier, and believe me, yours truly in Him who sends no one on warfare at his own charges,
ANDREW A. BONAR
