Excerpt from The Recollections of Jotham Anderson I have lived long enough in the World to exhaust all its pleasures, and to be more than wearied with its cares. Like other old men, I look back upon a life of mingled joy and sorrow, light and darkness, and take an equally melancholy satisfaction in the te membrance of each. There is one light, as I look back, which I see shining every where; brighter than the sun of my prosperity, and casting the rainbow of peace on every cloud of my adversity - and that is the light of God's love I cannot remember the' hour when I have seen it hidden. 0 that I had always honored and loved it as became his child l - And even now, when the infirmities of age are stealing upon me, and to the out ward eye of man nothing remains for me buttoil and sorrow-even now, that love is not withdrawn. It has lighted up, as I may say, a torch of hope, which dissipates all the pre sent clouds of earth, and scatters the thick darkness ofthe valley ofthe shadow ofdeath. He who was the guide of my youth, is the strength of my age. He who was my sun at the noon of life, is my shield at its close. Thy should I fear for the future, when the past, though chequered with ill, is yet one continued testimony of divine faithfulness P Methinks, as I draw near the tomb, I am as much tranquillized and gladdened by my remembrance ofthe past, as by my hope of the future. And why should I not be P For my faith in the promises is always the clear er and brighter, when I think of my experi ence of past faithfulness; and my hope is never so steadfast, as when it is supported upon the arm of memory. It is when I re flect on the joy and peace of days gone by, that I feel most able to trust those which are.
