Reading Experience:

'Pray say for me many grateful & kind things to Mr Young, with thanks for his dear Baxter, which I brought here with me, & read with pleasure very frequently. My friends in the opposite parlour have lent me another abridged work of Baxter's, edited by Benjamin Fawcett, & entitled "Converse with God in Solitude". The chapter on friends taken from us by Death is worthy to be written in letters of gold; the rest, I have not yet read: but hope to like'.
