[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—I would contrast with

the conclusion of your reply to Father Bernard Moultrie the pagan philosopher who was converted to Christianity by a peasant. When asked by the learned theologians of his day how he came to be converted to Christianity by an illiterate rustic, he replied that there was such a power of virtue came from the old num that he could not resist it, whereas he could answer their learned arguments with like for like. The Kingdom of God is not in word only, but also in power. That which bears the name of Christianity to-day has the Gospel of God in cord only but is destitute of Divine life and power.—I am, Sir, &c., 80 Grosvenor Street, West Hartlepool. Do:cum BROWN.
