The Diary of Ruth Bryan 1805-1860 for the years 1822-1829

It has been said that hers was emphatically “the life, walk, and triumph of faith.” But be it remembered, that this was not the lesson of a day; before such a blessed life could be attained, self must be brought low. The process was a painful one. Many years of darkness were appointed her, during which time she had to wade through deep waters of heart-exercise, while groaning under the bondage of the law. – From the Life  – Dedicated to my friend Jeff from Grace Gems who made this author known to me.
