Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1840 edition. Excerpt: ...me around, and encompass me in on every side, --and yet I have peace. War without, peace within. My enemies are numerous; I fear not for their multitude.

I will in all things cheerfully acquiesce in the will of my gracious God and Father, so shall I enjoy peace in the midst of trouble. ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN.
