"Such a research would richly pay us--for the end would be conviction--so much on the side of miraculous mercy--such an unanswerable proof of the superintendency of Divine Providence, as would effectually cure us of rash despondency--and melt our hearts--with devotional aspirations--till we poured forth the effusions of our souls in praise and thanksgiving."
— Sancho, Charles Ignatius (1729-1780)
(I.xliv, pp. 123-7; pp. 87-9)
