Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'Mamma suffers much and was obliged to go to bed after dinner so Mr de Regis read the sermon which was on the small number of elect and one of the finest that we have read. It seems there is much difficulty in saving oneself the way to heaven is narrow they say and that to damnation is wide. What I learnt from this sermon was that one must not be content with what one says, "I do, as others do", for it is just then that we say "I damn myself". Happily in Wartegg we have not many occasions to sin...'
