scriptures to the two apprentices In the everning a
few assembled to offer prayer and praise to God who
is wafting us though the paths of the great deep had

Edmonsons collection Lord help me verry approbate
the sea running like little mountains when my
sperits are low I contemplate on the works of Chr
