Not illustrated. 1835 edition. Excerpt: ... to your prayers, as well as myself. "With respect to my soul, I calmly wait, in unshaken resolution, for the full salvation of my God; ready to trust him, and to venture on his faithful love, and on the sure mercies of David, either at midnight, noonday, or cock-crowing: for my times are in his hand, and his time is best, and is my time. Death has lost his sting; and, I thank God, I know not what hurry of spirit is, or unbelieving fears, under my most terrifying symptoms. Glory be to God in Christ for this unspeakable mercy! Help me to praise him for it." 42. One of those who visited him at Newington, was Mr. William Perronet; a pious, sensible, benevolent, and amiable man, who was snatched hence in the strength of his years. He often said, the first sight of Mr. Fletcher fixed an impression upon his mind, which never wore off, till it issued in a real conversion to God, accompanied with a most affectionate and lasting regard for the instrument of that happy change. Of this friendly man Mr. Fletcher writes thus to Miss Perronet: "I cannot tell how much I am obliged to your dear brother for all his kind brotherly attendance as a Physician. He has given me his time, his long walks, his remedies: he has brought me Dr. Turner several times, and will not so much as allow me to reimburse his expenses. Help me to thank him for all his profusion of love, for I cannot sufficiently do it myself. Give my duty to your father: I throw myself in spirit at his feet, and ask his blessing, and an interest in his prayers. Tell him that the Lord is gracious to me; does not suffer the enemy to disturb my peace; and gives me, in prospect, the victory over death. Thanks be to God, who giveth us this great victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ! more
