Page 190 - I knew you would make me feel ; I therefore forbade your application. But you must believe me when I say, I do not wish to increase the sufferings of the prisoners. When I am ordered to execute them, the least that I can do is, to put them out of sight. I will now tell you...
Page 244 - O, with what meekness, and patience, and magnanimity, and Christian fortitude she bore those sufferings ! And can I wish they had been less ? Can I sacrilegiously wish to rob her crown of a single gem ?

Page 240 - MY DEAR SIR: To one who has suffered so much, and with such exemplary fortitude, there needs but little preface to tell a tale of distress. It were cruel indeed to torture you with doubt and suspense. To sum up the unhappy tidings in a few words, Mrs. Judson is no more.
Page 26 - A female friend called upon us this morning. She informed me of her determination to quit her native land, to endure the sufferings of a Christian amongst heathen nations— to spend her days in India's sultry clime. How did this news affect my heart ! Is she willing to do all this for God ; and shall I refuse to lend my little aid, in a land where divine revelation has shed its clearest rays ? I have felt more for the salvation of the heathen, this day, than I recollect to have felt through my whole...
Page 243 - The teacher is long in coming ; and the new missionaries are long in coming; I must die alone, and leave my little one; but as it is the will of God, I acquiesce in his will.
