Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'After poor John's funeral, I wished the servants, and those who attended, and were disposed to do so, to come and read with us, believing it might afford opportunity for relief, if any thing were given me for them. The party were in all about forty, many young people, and others. We first read two chapters in Matthew; after a pause, I kelt down and had to supplicate, first for all the party; afterwards for our own household, more particularly for the servants; in all which I was helped, and a very solemn silence followed'
