- A Letter on the Division by F.W. Grant (19th Dec 1884)
- Papers Concerning the N.H.H. Division (1887)
A collection of papers that gives good insight into what is known as the Grant division. Thankfully in the reunion between the Grant and Kelly-Lowe brethren, the KLC brethren were free to acknowledge this act was 'sin and unrighteousness'. Amazingly the TW brethren will still hold this was 'of God', but their ecclesiastical position necessitates them to and shows the falsehood of the whole thing. Particularly liked this on the last page: "At the judgement-seat of Christ you cannot, as so many of you do now, shelter yourselves by saying the assembly decided, and you could not but concur. This may quiet your conscience here, but there "every one of us shall give account of himself to God." "
