The children of Israel brought a willing offering to the LORD, every man and woman…
— A few months before the death of Miss Frances Ridley Havergal, the sweet and accomplished missionary poetess, she sent to the Church Missionary Society her jewels, value £50. Had she been strong enough, she herself would have gone to India. Consecrated plate: — Lord Shaftesbury, on one occasion, said to me, "I am going to build a schoolroom in your parish." I knew that he had a good many claims on him, and I said "Let me help you to collect the funds." But he would not, and he built schoolrooms in two of the parishes on the estate. Afterwards he said to me, "You asked me to allow you to help me in collecting funds, but I thought it was not my duty to do so. Do you know how I got the money?" I said, "No, of course I do not." "Well," he said, "I found I had so much more plate left me by my father than I wanted, that I thought I would sell enough to build these two schoolrooms."
