A STORY OF THE LATE QUEEN. i — f1 Preaching at the Park Chapel, Crouch End, on; Sunday, the pastor, the Rev. Alfred Rowland, Jj f ex-chairman of the Congregational Union, said J he was allowed by a member of the congregation ji to tell the following characteristic anecdote of r: the late Queen Victoria: -A district secretary of the London City Mission visited a small cottage at Windsor, with an old-world garden of sweet- :< smelling flowers in front. Upon taking a seat on g a chair which was brought to him he was told Y: that it was the Queen's chair. It seemed that one of the Royal Princesses stopped her carriage t to look at the flowers, and on learning that the mother of the house was ill went in to see her. i: Next day the Queen herself called, "and of course," said the daughter who told the story, we were greatly lfurried." But the Queen said, L" Don't be put out. I have come to-day not as a t Queen, but as a Christian lady. Have you got a Bible?" She was given a copy of the Scriptures, v and sat down on the chair and said: "I heard y from my daughter of your long and sad illness, and I came to comfort you." She took the sick woman's wasted hand in hers, and said, "Put your trust in Jesus, and you will soon be in a & land where there is no pain. You are a widow,: I" so am I. We shall soon meet our loved ones." d The Queen then read the 14th chapter of the Gospel of St. John, beginning "Let not your; heart be troubled," and then knelt down on the.; r floor and prayed for the sick woman. rt- ——————————————— t
