The 98th annual report (1902) of "The British and Foreign Bible Society" contains the following experience of Colporteur Galibert: "Calling at a handsome house, he explained his object to madame. 'How much do you ask for your whole load of books?' she inquired. 'Nine francs,' he answered, supposing that the lady wished to make a free distribution of the Scriptures. She paid the price and then called the servant, 'Take all these books and throw them into the fire.' 'Madame' said Galibert, 'here is your money; give me back my books.' 'No!' said the lady. 'I have paid you, and you may go. But when you pass this way again, don't forget to call; I'll buy your books again.' 'Madame,' says Galibert, 'I will go; but let me tell you that the very Word of God which you have destroyed will rise up to judge you at the last day.'"
