In our petitions we are liable to
be misled both as to their nature
and their motive, but in expressing
our thanksgiving to the Deity we
can never err; the least favoured
amongst us having received
sufficient token of the bounty
of Providence to excite emotion
of the sincerest gratitude.
"Seek first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all the rest shall be added unto you."
In another hand in pencil:
The above was written by Mrs Siddons
in a prayer book given to one of her
grand daughters/ Mrs H. H. Wilson and
given by her to me in 1835.
