My Dear Mrs. S.:

Your letter of the 19th is at hand and I AM responding to say, it is truly written in the Scripture:

'Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today." (Exodus 14:13)

However, at this time I AM responding to return the check you enclosed for Five Dollars in appreciation for MY Work and Mission. As I do not take up collections, neither receive love offerings, nor gifts, nor presents, nor compensation or remuneration in any form for MY Spiritual work and service, it would be a violation of MY Own Law, as given in the Scriptures, to accept of this gift. This has been MY policy for many, many years, as I AM a Free Gift to the world and there is no man who can honestly say he has ever given ME any money or anything of value. If anyone who is ignorant of MY policy, sends ME a gift as you have done, as an expression of appreciation, it is immediately returned, just as I AM herein returning your check.

Under separate cover I AM enclosing a copy of the Supplement to The New Day, which carries MY Letter "To Whom It May Concern", which will give you verbatim some quotations from the Scripture concerning why neither I nor MY followers receive gifts or tips. With best wishes and many blessings to you in every righteous endeavor, this leaves ME, as I AM Well, Healthy, joyful, Peaceful, Lively, Loving, Successful, Prosperous and Happy in Spirit, Body and Mind and in every organ, muscle, sinew, joint, limb, vein and bone and even in every ATOM, fibre and cell of MY BODILY FORM.

Respectfully and Sincere, I AM

(signed) REV. M. J. DIVINE, Ms. D., D. D.
(Better known as FATHER DIVINE)

GOD is a free gift to the world. Any and all of the material on this and other pages may be copied and reproduced.

Use the material freely but respect FATHER DIVINE'S intent, which was and is, to provide us all with the keys to eternal health and happiness without cost or price. HE truly came as a free gift to the world, gratis to mankind.

It is also nice to give credit where credit is due for through the Spirit and Teaching of FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE you are and can eternally be abundantly blessed.

From all of us to all of you. we wish you, peace and love, and many blessings, and may we all ever live in unity and brotherhood and the Consciousness of GOD'S Actual Ever Presence.

True Americanism, True Brotherhood, True Christianity, True Judaism and All True Religions are synonymous and truly Our GOD is One GOD. Amen
