Miracles in My Life - J. N. Loughborough

the Olcott

the Olcott meeting which was attended by Elder and Mrs. White, she gave us a testimony on the importance of continuing longer in one place. "It would be better and accomplish more good if there were fewer tent-meetings and a stronger force or company, with different gifts of labor. Then there should be a longer stay in a place where an interest is awakened. There has been too much haste in taking down the tent. Some begin to be favorably impressed, and there is need that persevering efforts be put forth till their minds become settled, and they commit themselves to the truth." At a conference held in Battle Creek on the 28th and 29th of April, 1855, the brethren voted to invite Elder White to move the Review Office from Rochester to Battle Creek. Dan Palmer, Cyrenius Smith, J. P. Kellogg, and Henry Lyon agreed to furnish $300 each to purchase a lot and erect a publishing office. They secured the lot on the south-east corner of West Main and Washington Streets, and erected a two-story wooden building 20 x 30 feet. The first number of the Review published here was Dec. 4, 1855. 104

In May, 1856, Brethren Ingraham, Cottrell and I started out again with the New York tent. After three weeks at Syracuse we moved to Rosevelt. At that meeting, having made up my mind that R. F. Cottrell ought to be preaching, I told him one Sunday that he must fill the 1:00 p.m. appointment, as I was going to get some rest. He consented supposing he would be alone in the effort. After he was well started, I went to the tent back of the rostrum and sat down beside the wall to listen. When he concluded his sermon, he began to give out my appointment for five o'clock. I lifted the wall over my head and was inside the tent just as he said, "Brother Loughborough will speak at five o'clock." Then he saw me and added, "Here he is. Let him give out his own appointment." Afterwards he asked, "Did you sit there all the time I was preaching?" "No," I answered. "not inside the tent, but just outside, and now you've got to take a turn with us." 105
