Halaman 276 - I often have cause to acknowledge before the Searcher of hearts, is far short of what I am persuaded, the power of redeeming love is able to effect ; yet some consolation is afforded by the conviction, that I most sincerely desire a higher degree of attainment, even the state of a perfect man in Christ Jesus — that I may be thoroughly washed in the laver of regeneration, until I am prepared, through adorable mercy, to be presented faultless before the throne of his glory with exceeding joy. In...
Halaman 381 - This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that JESUS CHRIST came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.
Halaman 10 - I was once strong for the work, but now I am a child, brought back to my horn-book, and have nothing to trust to but the mercy of God through Christ my Saviour.
Halaman 14 - God pervades the most secret chambers we can retire to, and His ear is ever open to hear both the evil and the good. Yea, many of the present day have known, when the terrors of the Lord have overtaken them for sin, and they have had to taste of the spirit of judgment and of burning, that every secret thing has been brought to light, and all the hidden works of darkness have been made manifest ; that even for idle words they have had to render an account. " When we have long wandered, and got far...
Halaman 144 - Brothers, — I request your attention, whilst I inform you of my own mind as an individual. I consider the conduct of the United States, since the war, to have been very bad. I conceive they do not do justice. I will mention what took place at New York at one particular time. After the treaty of Fort Stanwix, I went to New York under an apprehension, that the commissioners had not done right; and I laid before Congress our grievances on account of the loss of our lands at that treaty ; but the thirteen...
Halaman 117 - ... good peace, all animosities would have been done away, and you could then have sat side by side in council. I have one request to make, which is, that you would furnish him with provisions to carry him home.
Halaman 120 - Eiver and the Bay of Quinta, on the north sides of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, in the British government. " This evening Friends being quietly together, our minds were seriously turned to consider the present state of these six nations ; and a lively prospect presented, that a mode could be adopted by which Friends and other humane people might be made useful to them in a greater degree than has ever yet been effected ; at least for the cause of humanity and justice, and for the sake of this poor...
Halaman 15 - ... and all my boasted attainments, I fell far short of that purity, which all the vessels in the Lord's house must come to ; and that I was yet under the law, which cannot make the comers thereunto perfect, not having passed under the flaming sword, nor felt the day of the Lord to be come, which burns as an oven.
Halaman 396 - Watson united, we met with them in the provincial school — about one hundred children in all, their master, mistresses, and thirty or forty other Friends. My mind, which had been so exercised all day, presently after sitting down, felt sweetly opened to them ; they were soon broken into tears, and a more precious opportunity I never remember with children. They took leave of us in tears, and I felt much refreshed and comforted, and have reason daily to acknowledge, that it is the Lord who opens...
Halaman 24 - I endeavoured as soon as possible to retreat, but they stopped the sulkey frequently, and seemed reluctant to let us go. Accompanied by several Friends, we passed on to Augusta, and proposed a meeting at four o'clock in the afternoon of next day ; but the people being thoughtless and dissipated, were so taken up with their diversion, that we did not obtain the company of more than twenty. We proposed another at ten o'clock, in the forenoon of the following day : As they can scarcely tolerate us on...
