"Every word that fell from his lips is more precious than all the treasures of the earth; for his 'are the words of eternal life!' They must therefore be laid up in your heart, and constantly referred to on all occasions, as the rule and direction of all your actions."
— Mulso [later Chapone], Hester (1727-1801)
(I, pp. 70-74)
