Feb. 13th. This day is rendered peculiarly striking to me and my beloved wife, who is set off for Manchester, under the awful uncertainty whether she may find dear Hartley's afflicted wife alive or not. The Nelson Coach is gone by, and no tidings, for which I have remained here, as Hartley promised to write by that conveyance. Poor fellow, my heart aches for him, and prays for himself and his wife ; may she be spared, and may these afflictions be instruments in God's hands, of the greatest possible good to my dear children's souls at Cheetwood.
I have a fearful apprehension that all is over, and that the decided event has taken place: but Oh! my God, whatever may have happened, increase our faith and repentance towards Thyself; and our christian love amongst each other.
Night. All is over I My dear daughter is no more
in this world. She died at two o'clock this memorable morning. May we abound in prayer, resignation, and faith.
Feb. 14th. May God preserve me safe to Manchester, tomorrow. Oh I what a mournful interview awaits me; but I will strive through the grace of God, to bless the Lord, in the midst of all my tribulations. Skippers's
memorable words, " Bless the Lord," should be continually on my lips, flowing from faith in my only Saviour, Christ.
Feb. 27th. I have gone through many painful and
solemn scenes since I wrote the above; and the sight of my dear departed daughter in her coffin, I can never forget: most serene and beautiful was her aspect. I trust her soul is in Paradise, through the merits and atonement of Christ. She expressed from the first seizure a conviction that she should die, and often begged of God to pardon and receive her soul. A few hours before she died, she asked for her baby, kissed it, and said to her nurse, "I am sure you will take good care of my child"; and soon after two o'clock she was lifeless in her husband's arms, as he endeavoured to give something to revive her! "May we all meet in Glory," such was Frederic's dying prayer. I repeat it on this occasion with the earnestness and affection of an attached and mourning father-in-law.
