Change of address—Letters for the Editor should now be addressed, The Editor, The Light of Reason, Ilfracombe.
A. E. W.—Yes, you are at liberty to employ the illustration to which you refer.
Do not imagine, for one moment, that because you are "just over thirty," you have left behind the time and opportunities for self-improvement. You are just at the age when you are most capable of improving yourself. We know a lady of thirty-five who is contemplating entering upon a musical education. With all the mistakes and indiscretions of the past to guide you, and with your powers just arriving at maturity, you are now capable of entering upon and accomplishing any task. The past has gone; let it go for ever, retaining only the golden wisdom of its experiences, and, acting in the living now, the most stupendous difficulties will quickly give way before you.
E. E. K.—The sentence quoted by you from The Light of Reason is not applicable to any particular Church, whether large or small; if it were it would condemn itself. It refers to the spirit of exclusiveness in whatever sect or religion it may be found.
F. T.—The subject of Universal Love is expounded, with more or less detail, in our books, "From Poverty to Power "and "All These Things Added," and as many of our readers are familiar with these books, we will not, at present, deal with the subject in The Light of Reason, but may do so later.
