My countrymen, I have given proofs that I am one most anxious for liberties for our country, and I am still desirous of them.

The love of Christ reaches to the very depths of earthly misery and woe, or it would not meet the case of the veriest sinner. It also reaches to the throne of the eternal, or man could not he lifted from his degraded condition, and our necessities would not be met, our desires would be unsatisfied.
Ellen G. White
