Boreham on the Fragrance that Counts

F W Boreham tells this story of Henry Drummond.

A woman whose husband was dying came to Drummond late on a Saturday evening, and begged him to come to her house.

“My husband is deein', sir; he's no able to speak to you, and he's no able to hear you; but oh, do come!”

“But if your husband can neither hear nor speak, it's of no use my coming,” the professor reasoned.

“Oh, yes, sir, do come,” the woman pleaded. “I'd gie anything for him to hae just a breath o' you aboot him afore he dees!”
