By a constant spirituality of mind, rarely exhibited, she gave those delightful manifestations of a sanctified heart, showing she was preparing for the holy and blessed company of the redeemed.  That multitude, which man can number who, having come out of great tribulation, have washed their robes, and made them white, in the blood of the Lamb.
But deeply alive to the corruption in her own heart, All was unfeignedly aknowledged by her to be the work of divine and sovereign graces........."
