Attached to her family-record, in her handwriting, is the following prayer: "O, Father of mercy, have mercy on these Thy creatures, who will have no mercy on themselves: Thou hast told us so in Thy Word, and Thy unworthy hand-maid has found it to be a truth, and feels it and sees it to be true. I have no good thing that is in my flesh: Thou knowest I have nothing but what I received from Thee, that is good; and no one man knoweth but him that receiveth it. These aie my dear children, whom Thou hast trusted to my care. Thou knowest what has been my mind and chief desire, and so I expect to be judged."
