Reading Experience:

'[came home to find one of her sons drinking ale with some men with fireworks] I slept only at short intervals, up and down all night, in the morning shaken and jaded. But I had my poor wanderer in my little room, read part of the 51st Psalm; earnestly prayed for him, exhorted, reproved, but all in tender love: he was humbled, very sorry, very affectionate, entire peace was made between us'
