The Devil's Brigade by S. M. Hutchens

Mortal Remains

The Devil's Brigade

by S. M. Hutchens

I write this in honor of my old friend Kenneth McMillan, M.D., a great lion of God of whom you have never heard.

While I believe this essay to be a mirror of truth, I have disguised enough factual material to make identification of the protagonist unlikely for all but a very few. It deals with an episode in a certain man's spiritual autobiography that he showed little evidence of understanding, but which readers of this journal can both understand and find instructive.
