So are . the first entrances of sin slopped with the antidotes of a hearty prayer, and checked inter sobriety' by the eyes Of a revererend man, or the counsel of a singie&ermon: but when such beginnings are neglected, and rejigjon has not in it so^long as \ve can endure .it, (the v grow up to ulcers and pestilen tial evils; they destroy ths soul by their abode which at. hoir first entry might hatfe ^, been killeJ by t is pressure of a little finger,—Jeremy Taylor.
