עמוד 78 - I have been surprised at his questions and answers in natural things; that whilst he was ignorant of useless and sophistical science., he had in him the foundation of useful and commendable knowledge, and cherished it everywhere.

עמוד 21 - ... people had been vainly seeking without, with much pains and cost, they by this ministry found within; where it was they wanted what they sought for, viz., the right way to peace with God. For they were directed to the Light of Jesus Christ within them, as the seed and leaven of the kingdom of God; near all, because in all, and God's talent to all; a faithful and true witness and just monitor in every bosom; the gift and grace of God to life and salvation, that appears to all, though few regard...
