"WITH respect to myself: in many conflicts and troubles of soul I have consulted many masters of the spiritual life; but divine mercy did not, does not, suffer me to rest on the word of a fellow-creature. The best advices have often increased my perplexities, and the end was to make me cease from human dependence, and to wait upon God. To Him therefore I desire to point you and myself, in the person of Jesus Christ. He receives weary, perplexed souls still, and gives them solid rest He teaches as no man ever taught; His words are spirit and life; nor can He possibly mistake our case."
