SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., AUGUST 31 TO SEPT. 3--HUDSON
RIVER TRIP ON CHARTERED STEAMER, SEPT. 4.
BROOKLYN, N.Y., SEPT. 5, 6
WE HAVE concluded to have the Convention at Saratoga Springs, N.Y., with steamboat excursion to Brooklyn. This, we believe, will be much more enjoyable than to have the Convention at Brooklyn. Our thought is to have a Four-Day Convention at Saratoga Springs from Tuesday, August 31st, to Friday, September 3d, and on Saturday, September 4th, to enjoy fellowshipping on one of the famous steamboat trips on the Hudson River, arriving in good season to secure necessary accommodation for Saturday night. On Sunday, September 5th, the Academy of Music, the largest and finest auditorium in Brooklyn, will be used for the three sessions, morning, afternoon and evening. Monday, the 6th, will be devoted to visiting the headquarters of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, the Brooklyn Tabernacle and Bethel Home.
Saratoga has long been regarded as one of the finest summer and health resorts in the United States. Its immense Convention Hall seats five thousand people and is admirably suited for our General Convention. The acoustic properties of the building make it easy for speakers to be heard in any part of the auditorium.
Tickets should be purchased to Saratoga Springs, N.Y., making careful inquiry as to lowest rate applicable from your own station. Special concession on the basis of the certificate plan on account of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society's Convention will probably be obtained, in which event full fare will be paid on going trip, and certificate receipt furnished by the agent, which will entitle holder to return fare at reduced rate.
All believers in the Atonement by the Precious Blood will be welcomed if they have the Spirit of Christ. But "grievous wolves," "backbiters," "slanderers" and "contentious" persons are not invited. Should such attend these or any meetings of Truth people, they should be treated so Scripturally as to make them ill at ease and very unhappy at these Love Feasts. Mark the Apostolic delineations and admonitions and be of good courage in obeying the same. Read Jude 10-12and Romans 16:17 and Philippians 3:17.
Reasonable terms for boarding and lodging have been secured. None should count on an expense of less than $1.25 per day, and of course at good hotels it would be considerably more.
