Your labors will be here and there, so you must not be fastened to one place." I immediately put my house up for sale, and in two weeks time received a draft for the sum I desired.

After I returned from the Oregon camp-meeting in July, 1878, I spent two busy days at Oakland shipping the tent and fixtures to Reno, Nevada, where I had agreed to hold a tent effort. On the 17th, I took the train for Reno. I showed my ticket to the conductor, then lay down for much needed rest, and with a prayer for light about going to England.
