Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Lectures by the Rev. Arthur Mursell, to Working Men, in the Free Trade Hall, Manchester: 1. Fire! Fire! Fire!; 2. To Morrow; 3. Better Late Than Never; 4. Freedom; 5. Smiles and Tears; 6. Knocking at the Door; 7. Home; 8. Cross Roads; 9. What Ails Thee?; 10. Woman; 11. Red, White, and Blue; 12. Silence in Court!

Gospel; it is to prevail upon those who sneer at and despise the preachers of the truth to exercise a little more confidence in them, and show more justice to them, and not to condemn them without a hearing, and to beget, if possible, a more friendly understanding between the two generic races, starch and fustian. I do not know that the effect of this frank avowal or the simple end I had in view drew down upon me the distrust of any, or made them call me a person in disguise. It is not a very terrible name, after all. I am a parson, and I glory in the name; but not a parson in disguise. I should sooner think of a king being anxious to conceal his crown, or a conqueror wishing to hide his laurels, than a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ being ashamed to proclaim his profession. And, now that I have stumbled upon this theme, let me tell you, working men, that ministers are not the sanctimonious, cantin g, mawkish mew-worms that your injustice would make them out to be, but are the truest and best friends of our fallen humanity, and, in proportion as they are faithful to their sacred trust, are the real philanthropists and the genuine benefactors of our race.

It is necessary to be a little egotistical in a first address, in order to effectuate a preper understanding between us, and though I recognise with much pleasure many old familiar faces before me, there are numbers whom I have never seen before, to whom I am anxious to introduce myself and my intentions. I am sure I don't do this from any conceited motive, for there is not a more modest, in fact, bashful, young man in Manchester, than your humble servant. I only do it so that I may get rid of myself all at once, and not have occasion to revert to such an unpleasant subject again.

With this design (not the design of committing suicide, but only that of making away with myself), I shall just repeat one other remark which I have been in the habit of making, as explanatory of my notions as to the spirit in which we should meet one another on these occasions. It is this. That I have no sympathy with the Opinions Of those who tell us that working men are not prepared to hear the Gospel, and that I will never be a party to fastening such a libellous insult upon their under standings and their hearts, as to suppose that, in order to secure their attention and conciliate their regard, it is necessary to insinuate with a studied dexterity the truths of the Gospel, rather than Openly and directly to proclaim them. I believe this to be utterly and radically false, and shall therefore not hesitate, as occasion offers, undisguisedly, plaiul and without fear of mistake, to hurl broad-cast before the audiences whio may assemble here, the truth as it is in Jesus, whether men will hear or whether they will forbear. And now that I have done my best to help us to under stand each other, let me during the few minutes we remain together. Hide myself behind my subject.
