BISHOP ROSECRANS.–

As Bishop Rosecrans (brother of the General) was at dinner, the conversation reverted to the war.

“It would seem to me, Bishop, that you and your brother, the General, are engaged in very different callings.” remarked a gentleman

“Yes, it appears so,” returned the Bishop

“And yet,” he continued, “we are both fighting men. While the General is wielding the sword of flesh, I trust that I am using the sword of the Spirit. He is fighting the rebels, and I am fighting the spirits of darkness. There is this difference in the terms of our service: he is fighting with Price, whild I am fighting without price.”

I’m a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday’s words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. – Karan
