W-MCP1-3a.048 FORM LETTER TO BIBLE CLASS OF MACNAB STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Sep 14 1920
To: Hamilton, Ont.
The Bible Class season will open next Sunday on the old grounds and every player is expected to be on the field on the stroke of three oclock [sic]. there is no grandstand, and no spectators will be admitted. Everybody in the game is the slogan proposed for the [F]orward Bible Class this season. Last season we got our crowd together and now it is up to us, with God's help to shape them into a team. What ideas have you about how this may be done? Bring your ideas along anyway and see if you can put them over the plate. Every fellow will have a cance [sic] in the box. We want the [?].[?].C. to live up to its name. Make point of having a talk with the Captain every day about how this can best be done; and you are sure to get some daylight on the matter. He is ready to meet you any time in our room.
The opening lessons for this quarter tell how the Captain made his start in life as a young man, just as you are doing; and there is a lot in them for us. Personally I may say that I have made a special study of these lessons for a book I am now writing; and I believe that God's Spirit will enable me to do part in making them the most interesting lessons we have had. He will help you to do the same on your part if you only ask him, and give him a chance. Start to ask him right now, and on Sunday we will have the best meeting the Class has every known.
Yours in the Captain's Name
