PÓgina 31 - I desired all to withdraw, then told her that we were to part for ever ; that as Christians, we should part with prayer; and that I would, if she was willing, say a short prayer beside her.
PÓgina 52 - Their doctrines are most repulsive and strongly tinctured with impertinence and disrespect towards their superiors, in perpetually endeavouring to level all ranks and do away with all distinctions. It is monstrous to be told that you have a heart as sinful as the common wretches that crawl the earth. This is highly offensive and insulting, and I cannot but wonder that your ladyship should relish any sentiments so much at variance with high rank and good breeding.
