I visited, after dark, Mr. John Grab's wife. Indeed she is dangerous. I have mentioned this family on my first arrival in this place, and the longer and better I become acquainted with them, the more I have reason to admire and respect them. I look as yet on this lady to be a pattern of excellence, humanity, and Christian fortitude. The mind has never been enlightened by science, yet full of understanding and goodness, unaffected, free from vain and foolish pride.
