  y Septombor 29 1952 Dear BrotherHarold: Marcia said she would try to write you if she felt up to   but perhaps it is important 4>nough for both of us to write. The following paragraph is a quote from letters Iam sending oufto those who have inquired:  We have received some reprocussions from the announcement in the August HORIZONI about our lack of finances and justly so. Somewhere true conditions were exagerated. It is true that in April and May we did have a difficult time because offerings did not come in time to meet some responsibilities and there wasno reserve to fall back on. Howeverwe didnot sell any furniture. (This statement wasmade in some letters not in HORIZONS By Julyofferings hadcome in so we could make our trip to Hokkaidofrom personalfunds. Also there are only 5 native workers, instead of.24, who are wholly or partially dependenton us for support.   hope this diacrepency will not hurt your trustin Brother MacFarlani or in HORIZONS He is doing a difficult joband deserves ourwhole hearted support. Perhapsyouhave alredy beenasked asthe Coles have, what is the oiatter with this bunch over here to let a family go hgngry. were far from going hungry.   did sell some personal things to try to build upa reserve. The reprocussionsalso caused my article in the next Osaka News to be drastically cut As for the othermissionaries here on the field they were having just as hard a time financially as wewere. This last paragraph sounds like I'msorebut I don't want it that way. You did whatyou thought was right. BecauseMarcia doesn't keep copies of letters she sends you, I don't know what she wrote. It makes no difference now. Whatever damage there was is done. I write thisto you only to tell you personally how I feel. As far as Iam concerned no public statement need bemade about thematter. Three weeks ago Marcia made an appointment in the Air Force hospital in Nagoya for a physical examination. She hasbeen in Nagoya since, part of the time in the hospital and the rest of the time at the Davisee. Theday she went to see the doctor her eyes and flesh becamea definite yellow color. Thoughsome tests were negativethey have been treating her for Yellow Jaundice However thedisscolorationsare leavingtoo soon for ordinary yellow i^aundice. This week theyare making more tests and further treatment will be required.   do not knowhowmuch longer she will be in Nagoya. In the meantime thechildren andI are here at Koyoen.They are learning to accept mo asboth Mammy and Daddy and Iam doing what I thought I couldnever do— be a mother, though a poor one The Seminaryopened it/srall term September 25 with a Rally. The students gave reportsof theiractivities duringJuly and August. It was helpful to them to note that while theyspent much time holding services, with atfcendances averaging more than 100, yetthere wasa very small percentage of baptisms —54 in all the workfromNagoya to Ifenoya. Mr. Clarkpointedout to them there was not enough time spent in personal evangelism. There was anaverage of lees than 1 call per day. Agood note is that the students cameback resolved to study hard tobetter prepare themselves to serve the Christ.
