Unrecorded tract on repentance published by the Bible Truth Depot of Vinton, Iowa. The short narratives weaves various extended metaphors comparing the necessity of fruit to grow trees and the need for sorrow to engender repentance. The Depot was founded and operated by the Loizeaux brothers, a pair of sibling Methodist ministers in Iowa, who began the press to avoid the need to import pamphlets from England. They moved their venture to New York in 1890, and the first leaf bears a stamp with the address of their first office there. This title not located in OCLC, nor are many in the list of works printed on the rear wrapper.
