    From N. Southard, Editor of the Midnight Cry

    In the Midnight Cry of Oct. 31, 1844, about ten days after the close of the twenty-three hundred days, the following was published from the pen of the editor:—GSAM 189.4

    “In view of all the circumstances attending this movement, the blessed effects it has produced on the minds of God’s children, and the hatred and malice his enemies have displayed, we must regard it as the true ‘midnight cry.’ And if we have a few days in which to try our faith, it is still in accordance with the parable of the ten virgins; for when they had all arisen and trimmed their lamps, there was still to be a time when the lamps of the foolish virgins would be going out. This could not be till after the passing of the tenth day; for till that time their lamps would burn. There must, therefore, be a passing by of that day, for the foolish to give up their faith, as there must have been of 1843, for the tarrying time. A little delay is therefore no cause for disappointment, but shows how exact God is in the fulfillment of his word. Let us therefore hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful who has promised.”GSAM 189.5
