Thanks Marty - especially for the Wheaton link.

I notice that after his arrival in Scotland (Our Record, March 1892, p.48) there are many accounts and notices of his preachings in The Believer's Magazine (1892 to 1900) and The Witness (1902 to 1906). There's quite a bit of written ministry in The Witness and The Believer's Pathway from 1892 to 1901 and in The Believer's Magazine between 1900 and 1904.

The Wheaton article dates his "drift" to Quakerism as 1904. He's still promoted in The Witness until at least November 1906. Maybe it was a gradual drift.

There is one book not yet uploaded that I'd love to see - if anyone has it: "Studies in the Psalms of Israel; Their message for our day".

T E Wilson mentions (in his book on the Messianic Psalms) that Reich lists 33 things from Psalm 22 that were fulfilled by Christ. I can't find anywhere near that number. I'd appreciate seeing the list by Reich.

My mother, born Margaret Elizabeth Ross, was the only child of Esther M. Reich (who became Ross on her first marriage, and Tucker on her second.) Thank you for maintaining this archive of Max Isacc's writings.
