Excerpt from The Gospel Ministry, in a Series of Letters From a Father to His Sons
A father, once Writing to an absent son, on his twenty-first birth day, said with pleasantry, that the chief design of writing on that day, was to absolve him from further allegiance and declare him free. The son had already reached a position in life both honourable and lucrative. To the surprise of the father, he replied in a very serious strain, declaring that the day had been one of much sadness to him, because in the eye of the law, it terminated the period of his minority, and added, My dear father, I neither expect nor desire to be freed from your authority, until you are translated to a better world.'
