Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'My sisters and I had a volume of the sermons given by an Oxford friend of our brother William; but it was with the caution that there were two sermons which it was better for us not to read. The prohibition was ultimately taken off, but not till our friend had made up his mind that we were not likely to have our minds disturbed by the new teaching, which was extemely stern, and likely in some cases to be discouraging.'
