Wernigerode, July 18, 1909

I went to a genuine German Erbanunstunde, which is held by the earnest Christians of the Staats Kirche (church of the state) after the regular service in a small hall.

Prof. Stroeter read a few verses from the Bible and explained them, after which several of the audience offered up a short earnest prayer and, after the singing of a song, were dismissed. No ceremony of any kind, but very impressive and refreshing and blessed by God the father.

We took dinner at the hotel and supper at Prof. Stroeter’s.

Greeting from the Harz Railway.
[Editor’s note: “Jlfelder-Thal.” seems to be untranslatable.)
