Excerpt from The Annual Monitor for 1878: Or Obituary of the Members of the Society of Friends in Great Britain and Ireland, for the Year 1877
The testimony Of former volumesis abundantly repeated in this, - and a glorious testimony it is, that for those who Sleep in Jesus, survivors sorrow not asethose who have no hope. Yet some atleast whose records are found in the2 following pages knew well what it was, in deep conciousness of innate corruption, to feel their souls at times cast down within them; but remembering Him who had called them by His grace, and trustfully committing themselves to His guidance and ever present strength, they were enabled again and again to triumph in Him, and now rejoice in being for ever made more than conquerors through Him who loves them. And shall not we who read their records, be encouraged to believe that the grace which was sufficient for them, will prove as sufficient for our deepest needs, as we too follow with that whole-hearted dedication which makes no compromise with the world, the ﬂesh, or the devil, Him who said If any man serve me let him follow me, and where I am, there Shall also my servant be. If any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
