Too Late For Restaurant Waiter - Story Told By Dr. R. A. Torrey

"One evening when Mr. Alexander and I were in Brighton, England, one of the workers went from the afternoon meeting to a restaurant for his evening meal. His attention was drawn toward the man who waited upon him, and there came to his heart a strong impression that he should speak to that waiter about his soul, but that seemed to him such an unusual thing to do that he kept putting it off. When the meal was ended and the bill paid, he stepped out of the restaurant, but had such a feeling that he should speak to that waiter that he decided to wait outside until the waiter came out. In a little while the proprietor (owner) came out and asked him why he was waiting. He replied that he was waiting to speak with the man who had waited upon him at the table. The proprietor (owner) replied, "You will never speak to that man again. After waiting upon you he went to his room and shot himself."
