Memoir of Mrs. Ann Fearnside: By Her Husband, the Rev. Joshua Fearnside

Rev. Joshua Fearnside




Reading, Piety, Amusement

    Observes: 'From a child she was fond of books; and it was her good fortune to be pretty well supplied with them. She had within her reach books of amusement, and books of science, as well as books of piety and devotion: and she both regarded reading as a duty, and enjoyed it as a very high gratification' (501–02).
