John Condor, afterwards D.D., was born at Wimple in Cambridgeshire, June 3, 1714. His grandfather, Richard Condor, kissed him, and, with tears in his eyes, said, 'Who knows what sad days these little eyes are likely to see?' things wearing at that time a threatening aspect, relative to Dissenters. Dr. Condor remarked upon mentioning the above circumstance, 'These eyes have, for more than sixty years, seen nothing but goodness and mercy follow me and the churches of Christ, even to this day.'

Thus many a desponding prophecy is falsified by events most blessed. We write bitter things, and God blots them out and writes gracious things in lieu thereof. Many a gloomy vaticinator might save himself his depression of spirit if he would remember that 'the Lord reigneth,' and 'he will speak peace unto his people.'
