(3) original letters in the handwriting of Princess Victoria (1917-1920). Some consider Princess Victoria to have “professed,” even though she never did so formally in a meeting, never attended a single meetings or convention. John Pattison wrote in his "Princess Victoria’s Contact with the Workers 1917-1920": “The essence of these letters...show that, as we have been told, Princess Victoria had a clear revelation of Truth; that she was very close to and influential to her mother, as were also the professing girls who were in service to the household.” Click Here to View Letter No. 1; then click "next" to see the other 2 letters.

The name of the Mother of Wm Irvine's illegitimate son has been discovered!
It has been fairly common knowledge that William Irvine fathered an illegitimate son named Archibald Irvine. There has been much speculation through the years surrounding the identity of the mother. Until 2010, mother’s name was not known to the public, although descendants of the Irvine family were aware the son existed.
Not long ago a surprising email arrived at TTT, providing the son's birth record as well as additional family details. Click Here to read a mini version

Notes of George Walker - Picton Conv
- "The world can say that they got saved by reading the Bible, or got something direct from heaven, but just ask them to show you someone in the New Testament that got saved like that. This is the worst form of spiritual pride that has ever been known. "
