father than ride a league to church.; many a
Saturday night or Sabbath eve and on other
occasions have our parents led us to the vil
lage school-house to meet a few pious heads
of families with their well trained progeny.
And then have we heard a rhetorical reader
revive the shades of St. Paul Sterne Wesley
and other great divines whose soul-stirring
passages thawed the hearts of some to piety
and of others to friendship and. early 'love.
It was u community where religion was
verging perhaps to popularity ; so that those
who needpd grace to go up to the temple of
the Lord with right motives went there to
save their credit and show their equipage
No matter ; piety friendship love cleanliness
and elegance all were good fruis. though
some perhaps a little out of season. .
