IT WAS TRUE.
In October, 1883, the question was asked through the TOWER; "Are there any other papers than the TOWER which teach, as it does, that Jesus is now present?" And the answer was given: "We know of none other which teaches the personal presence of Christ Jesus," etc.
If any reader knows of any journal which up to and at that date taught the presence of our Lord, they will confer a favor by sending us a copy of such paper with the article containing such teaching marked. We feel sure, that the above answer was correct.
