Overview

LAST ADVICE OF THE REV. CHARLES PETTIGREW TO HIS SONS, 1797. by Charles Pettigrew

My Dear Sons,--Life is precarious, and it is not likely that I shall remain long with you. The symptoms of a radical decay of constitution indicate the approach of my dissolution. And I can only say "the will of the Lord be done."
From the happiness which I enjoy in my family, in a social capacity, a continuation of life is flattering and truly desirable; but, particularly, on your account I wish to protract life to a more advanced period. My sons, I feel myself greatly interested in the turn you may take. Could I stay but long enough to guard you from the rocks and shoals which are so numerous, and so dangerous to youth, as just launching out into the troubled ocean of this life; and more especially, could I be so happy, as with success to direct your feet into the paths of virtue, religion and happiness, with a rational hope that you would persevere therein, the bed of death would be rendered comparatively soft, easy and comfortable.
