inoffensive, if not very edifying. So m contented, modest, easy, steady, it was a pleasure" to be in his company. A most merciful man; as ready to forgive, as unapt to take or give an offence."But it was in spiritual gifts and faculties, that this apostle of his day, shone with the Canada Goose Coats greatest lustre." " He was a man," (I again quote William Penn,) " that God endowed with a clear and wonderful depth ; a discerner of other men's spirits and very much a master of his own, And though side of his understanding which lay next to world, and especially the expression of it, sound uncouth and unfashionable to nice ears, matter was nevertheless very profound; and, abruptly and brokenly as sometimes his sente Coach Factory Outlet Online would fall from him, about divine things, it js well known they were often as texts to many fairer declarations."
jt-vj$fc|)OUgh this sententious and rather abrupt mode ' ..'«»EffrSpTession, might be his frequent manner of de^lE'verry ; yet this dyes not appear to have been always £pe ; ,for in the testimony given' by his children terning him, they say, that " though of no great 4iitfe,.he had the tongue 'jjt. the learned, and peak a word in due season, to the conditions f?tpacities of most; especially to them that were &itlV;fnd wanted soul's rest; being deep , in the Sjie'iinvsteries of the kingdom of God." Of this Sjgf^&is character, I find a remarkable instance, inartiASi-'ript which has been put into my hands, :j«h' the following relation is given by an an\vom;tn Friend, to some who visited her. , ^'.'^-&d ,rr(iw^ Friends," Coach Factory Outlet said she, " I will tell you I^^SSHf'.i Avas first convinced. I was a young lass at ^jffi|ft:timej and lived in Dorsetshire, when George V.;?l^^.cattje to that county-; and he having appointed $.;^gfeieui'ig, to whieh' Canada Goose Outlet people ^generally flocked, I went |»|^.^e; rtstr-and in my going along the road, '■-"'-qiiery arose in my mind ; what is it that I feel ,fcii jcbndemneth me when I do evil, and justifieth AVben I do well ? what is it ? in this state I went . meeting. It was a large gathering, and e Fox rose up with these words : who art that queriest in thy mi ad, what is it which I which condemneth me when I do evil, and iwith me when I do Coach Outlet well Coach Outlet ? I will tell thee what Lo! he that formeth the mountains and D dWilliam Mead belonged, which was about half a mile distant from his house; but as he was not always able to do this, he frequently held meetings in the house, with the family, and with those who came to visit him ; still feeling the benefit of frequent waiting upon God, and the duty of worshipping him in as public a manner as his bodily health would permit. He continued at Gooses till the 2d month, 1690, when he returned to London, and after paying a short visit to his P'riends at Kingston, eame again to the city, where he Coach Outlet Online continued till the yearly meeting in the fourth month, of which he gives this account.—" The wonted goodness of the Lord was witnessed, his blessed presence enjoyed, and his heavenly power livingly felt, Coach Outlet Store Online opening the hearts of his people unto him, and his divine treasures of life and wisdom unto them ; whereby many useful and necessary things, relating to the safety of Friends, and to the honour and prosperity of truth, were weightily treated of, and unanimously concluded."
After this yearly meeting, he continued in London nearly a month, and then went into Canada Goose Cheap the country, as far as Hertford and Ware, visiting his Friends at Tottenham, Ford Green, Enfield, Cheshunt, Waltham Abbey, and Winchmore Canada Goose Jackets Hill. At Hertford he had a meeting with the ancient Friends of that place, to whom he imparted suitable advice ; and returned by Ware, and other places already mentioned, to London, in the latter part of the seventh month ; where, except one excursion into the neighbouring country, he continued tilt his disease, being almost daily with Friends at their meetings, and writing epistles on different occasions. The last of these is addressed to Friends in Ireland, who were, at that time, under great sufferings, from the intestine commotions in that nation. This affectionate and encouraging epistle is dated the 10th of Eleventh Month, 1690. The following day being the first of the week, he attended the meeting at Gracechurch street; where he was publicly exercised in his ministerial gift, both in testimony and^supplication, with great power and Canada Goose Sale clearness.
