"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

It was one of May's sweetest mornings that I met a clergyman of the village of D--, and received from him an invitation to be present at a meeting of brethren in his church. At the time appointed I was there, and, with no small satisfaction listened to several who narrated their Christian experience. It was at this meeting I met the subject of this narrative, and heard from his own lips the story of his wondrous wickedness against God, and of God's more wondrous goodness and grace to him.
