CO THE EDITOR. Sis,—While thanking you for your report of the meeting of the Holiness and Divine Healing Association in your ißaue of the 17th instant, permit me to correct an error which appears therein. Mr Dowie's meetings were in no way similar to those of Mr Milner Stephen. Mr Stephen professed to heal or cure by virtue of a power in himself — i.e., animal magnetism. Mr Dowie distinctly repudiated this power, claiming that he did not heal, but that the Lord did so in fulfilment of His word in Mark xvi., 18. The Association above-mentioned disclaims Stephen's power, and, while not denying Mr Dowie's gift, acts differently from his method, taking the passage you quote, James v., 14 and 13, witli many others as their authority. —I am, etc, A Member. Dunedin, September 20.
