Excerpt from The Devil Unmasked
Satan and I first met at the foot of the holiness mountains, where the. Road forks, one going through the plains of sin to the land of perdition and the other up the mountain to the portals of glory. I was very much surprised when I first saw him; he did not look anything like I had supposed he would. I had often seen his picture and supposed that he had long horns, cloven feet, a skeleton - like body, and a fiendish look.
If he had any horns, they were covered up; if he was cloven footed, I could not detect it, and, instead of being a lean, skeleton-like person, he was plump and looked as though he was well kept; in fact, he looked real genteel and dignified, more like an angel of light than the old-time devil people used to talk about. Instead of being a horrible, ugly, frightful being, he looked like a high-toned gentleman, who would make a very favorable impression on almost anybody.
