TWO SHORT NOTES

The CRISIS is of great value to me. It comes next to my prayer book.
Bishop John Hurst, Baltimore, Md.

I prize the CRISIS more highly than any journal to which I am a subscriber not excluding professional journals, and I personally appreciate and greatly admire the work of the Association with which this organ is identified to the extent that I cannot longer withhold my name from the membership.
