Sowing on Ploughed Ground

A selection from a letter by Augusta Toplady to William Romaine, a winsome and effective preacher of the gospel, upon hearing that he had accepted his invitation to come to Broad Hembury in Devonshire, England, to preach. The letter was written September 11, 1773.

God’s Holy Spirit come with you, and speak by you, and bless you to this people. You will sow on ploughed ground, and cannot offend the generality of my hearers; preach free and finished salvation as strongly as you will. May you be enabled to reach their hearts.
