The Bishop of Lincoln has issued a Lenten pastoral letter, in which he refers to what ! he terms "our present trouble" in the following terms: knows how weak we are, and how easily we excuse ourselves from the discipline to which the church year by year invites us. Therefore He gives us from time to time, as tokens of His love, special opportunities of suffering through what seemed to be the mere circumstances of our lives. Bo it is just now in our own diocese. God has allowed trouble to come to us. I say ‘ come to us,’ because, thank God, it has come from without rather than fropi amongst ourselves, but still it is upon us.” Recording to the latest official report from America the population of the United States numbers no fewer than 61,702,000 souls.
