"Such schemes as these are nothing without numbers." So said Mr. Weston to Emma, who could hardly agree. For she preferred the original plan, that two or three more of the chosen only were to be admitted to join them.

Collect for St John the Baptist
The (Roman) Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Savannah GA
Almighty God, by whose providence your servant
John the Baptist was wonderfully born, and sent to prepare the way of
your Son our Savior by preaching repentance: Make us so to follow his
teaching and holy life, that we may truly repent according to his
preaching; and, following his example, constantly speak the truth,
boldly rebuke vice, and patiently suffer for the truth's sake; through
Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the
Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
