Last image of Walther?

 These were given to me by one of our parishioners, a great-grandson of Rev. H. Ruhland.  Rev. Ruhland was a seminary student at the time when he made these sketches of his professors. 

Since the sketch of Walther is dated in 1886, it it likely the last picture of him since he died the following year. 

Originally printed in the Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly, the sketches also contain pictures of Craemer, Erdmann, and Stoeckhardt, among other notable LCMS theologians.

Hey, what happened to your hymn page? I clicked on it and it just goes to some google thing.

I don't know, it seems to be working fine for me - it's in Google Docs.

Ah, okay thanks. I must have been logged in already last time because I just clicked on it and it opened directly. I just noticed you have a copyright on your stuff. I am not selling it, just using it at home. Hope that's okay. I'm not intending to rip you off.

No problem.
