From a letter to J.C. Ryle from William Marsh.
“The great enemy is awake and astir; if we sleep, the land will be sown with tares. May truth conquer among our Suffolk brethren, and the wheat they sow producce an abundant harvest. Controversy, ‘with meekness and wisdom’, in the present day is a bounden duty; silence would be too like neutrality, and neutrality is treason. Yours most truly, William Marsh.”
