A very fine, personal letter. 

Addressed to a Mr. Griffin, probably the same recipient as the other letter. He is apparently a minister, probably in Wales, whom Spurgeon recommends ought to write his "Recollections" or autobiography before he passes away and urges that it would be quite welcome. He would review it in the Sword and Trowel. 

The most moving part is that we see Spurgeon at the end, near begging, "How greatly I need your prayers! Do not forget me!" Spurgeon suffered from an ongoing issue with depression and from a lack of rest. He once wrote, if the enemy doesn't kill me, my friends will . . . by that he meant because of their constant requests on his time for preaching, recommendations, etc., 

The letter is a sort of mini-lesson both on the imprortance of praying for each other and especially those who carry heavy public loads and, perhaps also, on the importance of self-government of our schedules etc.,  

2pp. Very good condition.
