[unknown] : [Bible probably]

'The following particulars relating to a poor woman named Amelia Roberts, who has hanged for robbing her master's house, are so instructive both to masters and servants... The facts stated were communicated by her to two of the ladies of the Newgate Association who visited her ... she then went into the family of Lady E.K., who, being a woman of exemplary piety herself, laboured for the good of her servants also ... the private instructions of her mistress, who would at times sit and read to her while working at her needle, were at length blessed so far that she became sensible of the value of her soul'
