Think of Jesus

A selection from a letter by John A Broadus, while in Goshen Depot, Virginia, to Mrs. Broadus, June 16, 1867, about a sermon he preached at the Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Virginia:

Sunday morning it rained considerably, which prevented my going to Sunday-school, and prevented the huge Presbyterian church from running over. It was full, including some four hundred college students and cadets [Washington and Lee College]. I did greatly long to make them think of Jesus. Oh, that I could once speak of him somewhat as a man ought to speak [he preached on ‘One Jesus,’ from Acts 25:19].
