MY MOTHER, MY WIFE, AND MY DAUGHTER,
FROM WHOM BLESSINGS COME TO ME DAILY.
ROBERT LAIRD COLLIER.
ROM time to time the secular press has pub+ lished, on the following Mondays, my Sunday evening discourses, which are usually practical discussions of religious or social subjects, addressed, for the most part, to the busy, enterprising young men who constitute a large part of the congregation of the Church of the Messiah.
I have been frequently requested to put some of these discourses into a more permanent form, which, with some hesitation, I have consented to do, and give them to the public just as they were preached and taken down by short-hand reporters for the local papers, with the hope and prayer that God's blessing may attend them, and that they may do some measure of good.
ROBERT LAIRD COLLIER. CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 1869.
