[n/a] : Bible

Accounts of prisoners: 'I.N., 21, Reg. no. 491. - Convicted of a felony. - I found this criminal entirely ignorant of the contents of the Bible when committed, his former life having been most dissolute. Shortly after his committal he shewed much penitence. and the earnest attention with which during almost every hour of the day he was studying the sacred Scriptures attracted especial notice. He was but three months in prison yet he learnt the four Gospels, and several chapters of the Old Testament.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: I.N.      Print: Book
