    “DEFENSE OF ELD. JAMES WHITE

    “Justice to Eld. White, and sacred regard for the truth and for right, demand that we speak in his defense against the unjust attacks of his enemies. We do not do this merely as an act of personal justice to Eld. W., but mainly because what is said against him is used by our enemies as their best weapon with which to assail the cause of present truth. We fully believe that God has called him to occupy a leading position in the work of the third angel’s message. We also believe that God has given to Sr. White what the New Testament calls the gift of prophecy. The importance of her position in this work is, therefore, very great. If our work is of God, and if the doctrines which we cherish are the truths of the third angel’s message, then, surely, ours is a most important and responsible business. And those who stand in the fore-front of the work have responsibilities upon them which cannot be estimated. We have some sense of the importance of the position occupied in this work by Bro. and Sr. White. But our enemies have, in some respects, a more perfect conception of it than we, as a people, have possessed. By the word, enemies, we mean those who have made it their chief business to attack the character and work of Bro. and Sr. White, as the most effectual method of warring against this cause. We have never claimed infallibility for these faithful servants of Christ; yet we believe that God has given them a testimony to bear which cannot be disregarded, except at our own peril.DJWW 22.2

    “It becomes necessary at the present time to make a direct appeal to the readers of the Review relative to the course of Eld. White in financial matters. It is due to him, and he asks it as an act of justice, that every person who knows any act of dishonesty, or overreaching, or fraud, or covetousness, or grasping of means in any unbecoming manner, should make a statement of the fact in writing, and send it to this Office. We design to place before the public a full statement of the financial matters of Eld. White, as the most fitting reply to the attacks which are now being made upon him.DJWW 22.3

    “We ask every one who can speak of any unjust transaction of which he has personal knowledge, to report the same to this Office. Let us have a full and immediate reply to this request. And that we may have the whole truth, we ask also that those who have been witnesses of, or sharers in, his acts of benevolence, shall also give us statements of the facts touching this part of the subject. We request an immediate response from all concerned.DJWW 23.1

    “J. N. ANDREWS,

    “U. SMITH,
    Committee.”
