Excerpt:

Miss Sarah Howley, when she was between eight and nine years old, was carried by her friends to hear a sermon, where the minister preached upon Matth. xi. 19. My yoke is easy, and by burden is light: in the applying of which scripture this child was mightily awakened, and made deeply sensible of the condition of her soul, and her need of Christ; she wept bitterly to think what a case she was in: and went home, and got by herself into a chamber, and upon her knees she wept and cried to the Lord as well as she could might easily perceived by her eyes and countenance.

2. She was not contented with this, but got her little brother and sister into a chamber with her, and told them of their condition by nature, and wept over them, and prayed with them and for them.

3. After this, she heard another sermon upon Prov. xxix. 1. He that being often reproved, hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy: at which she was more affected than before, and so exceeding solicitous about her soul, that she spent a great part of the night in weeping and praying, and could scarce take any rest day or night for some time together, desiring with all her soul to escape from everlasting flames, and to get an interest in the Lord Jesus: O what should she do for Christ? what should she do to be saved?

4. She gave herself very much to attending upon the word preached, and still continued very tender under it, greatly savouring what she heard.

5. She was very much in secret prayer, as might easily be perceived by those who listened at the chamber door; and was usually very importunate, full of tears.

6. She could scarce speak of sin, or be spoken to, but her heart was ready to melt.

7. She spent much time in reading the scripture, and a book called The best Friend in the worst of Times, by which the work of God was much promoted upon her soul; and was much directed by it how to get acquaintance with God, especially toward the end of that book. Another book that she was much delighted with was, Mr. Swinnock's Christian Man's Calling; and by this she was taught in this measure to make religion her business. The Spiritual Bee was a great companion of hers.
