William Merry : The Philosophy of a Happy Futurity est. on the Sure Evidence of the Bible

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 20 February 1840: 'I never received Mr Merry's book until a very few days since. Wasn't it too bad of my dear people in Wimpole Street? [...] they [...] kept the book until boots, & shoes enough for a colony cd be made -- allowing for that corresponding genius of procrastination common to shoemakers. I really was ashamed to write to you until I had the book -- & when I had it I read it off my conscience & wrote to Mr Merry'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Elizabeth Barrett      Print: Book


William Merry : Predestination and Election, Considered Scripturally

Elizabeth Barrett to William Merry, 2 November 1843: 'Your book [...] is written in a spirit so amiable & conciliating, .. so Christian-heartedly [...] that it almost reconciles me to its controversial character & its subject [...] again and again, as I read along, I felt ... "[italics]That[end italics] is true" -- "[italics]that[end italics] is rightly put"'.
