Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
A brave cavalry officer was dying of his wounds. He thought himself on the field, at the head of his gallant men, and fancied that a heavy gun was just in front of them ready to be fired. His distress was great. At length he thought the gun had been fired, and his men, badly cut up, were retreating. Here I interposed, saying, "There is no gun there; you are safe among friends." "Let me alone," he sternly replied; "I must recover my command and renew the attack." "No," said I, "let us not think of battle scenes. You are soon to die. Let us talk of Jesus." The mention of that name seemed to exert the powerful influence I had often heard ascribed to it. His agitation ceased at once; his delirium passed away; a smile lit up his pallid features. After a moment's silence, he said in a low tone, "Jesus, Jesus! It is He who said, 'Come unto Me,' etc. I want rest, I am weary." Soon after he entered the glorious rest of heaven.
