This letter appeared in the June 11, 1894, special issue of Zion’s Watch Tower:
DEAR BRO. AND SISTER RUSSELL:
I feel I must emphasize the dear; for since this fearful trial has come upon you and you have so clearly proven the groundlessness and injustice of the attack upon you, you look nobler to me than ever before. You are kept in peace, but now go further, rejoice! Rejoice that you are counted worthy thus to suffer for his name! Yes, rejoice; for out of this you come forth purer and brighter--and those who really love the Lord, not in word or tongue only, but in deed and truth, will love you more, trust you more fully and show themselves more willing to heed all your words of advice and encouragement. Well, the sifting is going on. The Lord will have only clean ones, and he knoweth them that are his--praise his name! Such favor to be chosen of him! How can any be other than humbled at the thought!
Ever your sister, filled with blessed hope,
F. G. Burroughs.
Bible House workers are noted as such in that issue. She is not.
In the Conspiracy Exposed Extra we find this:
Sister Burroughs writes on the subject as follows:
“A sister here asked me if I did not think it would be well to let Bro. Russell know how much harm had been done here by Mr. Rogers in his very disagreeable manner of insulting those who refused to buy `DAWN; ’ but I thought he was in England and beyond giving further offense here, so we would not trouble you, but took him to the Lord in prayer–that he might be humbled and given a better spirit.”
Burroughs lived in New York State in 1894, not in Allegheny. We have no record of her association with Bible House.
