    Preface and Reflections

    Mission-Friend's faithful and skillful stenographer, who copied so many edifying sermons while reading thousands upon thousands of rich blessings, has left us. He has gone to rest after a long workday. He has left to be with God, for which he longed in later years.

    As Jesus said about Lazarus in Bethany, so also we could say about Boring, "He has slept in." Lazarus was surely a calm, cheerful man who mostly lived and moved with sisters, and in the same way the happy Boring grew up in Jönköping together with his mother and sister. His father died when he was only a year old, and therefore his mother and older sister brought him up. They also became mediator to his conversion, which occurred with the big awakening in the year 1876.

    Since he studied in the town's general secondary school, he first worked in the well-known Hall's print shop and newspaper office, but came to America in 1884, called to the Minneapolis "Veckoblad," where he stayed a long time. ??

    As a result of his skillfulness as a speedy (fast) writer, he got a situation on the "Missions-Vänners" print shop and in time became its editor, where his cheerfulness and loyalty lasted nearly 50 years.

    When lektor P. Waldenström was here on his first visit in 1889, Boring went with him on his trips over the whole country, and wrote down and introduced in the paper all his sermons. During the year he wrote down many other sermons which then became widely known and read. In later years he often wrote out the sermons of Pastor Gustaf F. Johnson and Evangelist Frank Mangs, of which we sent out these accompanied by the last that Boring wrote down and which he, inn his pure writing, mentioned Pastor Isak Höyem's sermon on the Bible's last book -- all for the faithful stenographer's memory, with the wish and prayer that the glorious messages which they contain will be a rich blessing for many.

    Boring was born Dec. 29, 1857, and slept away peacefully May 11, 1936, and thus was going on his 80th year. Peace over his delightful memory.
