Anecdote of Elias Hicks

By: Lydia Maria Child

Fiction

It made a strong impression on my mind, because it shows so clearly the excellence of a bold meekness and Christian firmness in the discharge of duty; because it adds another fact to prove that he who trusts in moral power hath ever a brave indifference to threats of physical violence. When Elias Hicks was preaching in Virginia, many years ago, he took occasion to bear a powerful testim...
