Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1817 Excerpt: ...but it obtained for them neither privilege nor indulgence.

I could not bring myself to imitate her; but an interior voice often told me, that I did not do for God, all that he required of me. I wished to do it, but I seemed, if I may use St. Augustine's words, to fear, lest God should speak too clearly to me;. and that I should engage myself too far, in his service.--The death of my sister Henrietta made a strong impression on me. She lived like the queen, and died the death of a saint: I desired that my death might resemble hers; but I felt there was little resemblance in our lives.
