Excerpt from The Wesleyan Methodist Association Magazine, for 1844, Vol. 7
Naturally possessing a melancholy and desponding disposition, her joy partook not of an extatic character. Her mental constitution frequently exerted a lessening inﬂuence on her spiritual enjoyments, and excited in her such an amount of anxiety, lest she should be found deceiving herself, that the time of her sojourning was passed, most emphatically, in fear. Her rejoicing was mingled with trembling to an extent, as was uncomfortable to herself, and to some persons, pos sessing a less tender conscience, highly unaccountable.
For some weeks prior to her death, she entertained a strong pre sentiment of her approaching dissolution, under the inﬂuence of which impression, her deep humility, her exemplary deadness to the world, her anxiety to be fully prepared for her Master's coming, became daily and increasingly evident. She dreaded not the consequences of death, knowing, that when absent from the body, she should be present with the Lord, which she regarded as bliss to be infinitely desired. She was assured of obtaining a victory over death and the grave; yet she feared the pains of dissolution, the conﬂict with her final foe.
