hand, or

by difficult labor, want of necessaries, and mean or insufficient diet on the other hand, bring distempers upon themselves by the natural repercussions of their way of living; that the middle station of life was calculated for all kind of virtues and all type of pleasures; that peace and plenty were the handmaids of a middle fortune; that temperance, small amounts, tranquility, health, society, all acceptable diversions, and all preferable satisfaction, were the blessings participating in the middle station of life …”—- “These reflections made me very sensible of the goodness of Providence to me, and really grateful for my present condition, with all its challenges and miseries; and this part likewise I can not but suggest to the reflection of those who are apt, in their anguish, to state, Is any condition like mine?

Providence had

believed fit.”—-“Call upon me in the Day of Problem, and I will deliver, and thou shalt glorify me … Wait on the Lord, and be of great Cheer, and he will enhance thy Heart; wait, I say, on the Lord:’It is difficult to reveal the Comfort this provided me. In Answer, I the good news is laid down the Book, and disappeared unfortunate, at least, not on that Celebration.”—- “Wait on the Lord, and be of good cheer, and he will enhance thy heart; wait, I say

How can He sweeten the bitterest providences, and give us cause to praise Him for dungeons and jails! What a table was here spread for me in a wilderness where I saw nothing at first but to

perish for hunger!”—-“How strange a Chequer Work of Providence is the Life of Male! and by what secret differing Springs are the Affections rush
