    What is special about these issues? I read them some time ago in a scanned format in date order. It enabled me to absorb a little of what it was the be a member of that small group who, after the great disappointment, did not reject the basic interpretation of prophecy by William Miller but instead re-interpreted their understanding of it. In some issues there are short letters by those who spent their means in travelling to visit their fellow believers, nourishing them in ‘The Truth’ and also baptising some. One can see the pressures to reject the Shut Door theory beginning to grow. An interesting read. A steal at $8!
