The Quintessential Quaker May 20th, 2018


As I was thus brought near to the Lord and his people, he was pleased to shew me that he had further service for me to do, which was to bear public testimony for his name. But oh! the exercise this brought upon me, for I found self was yet for being pleased, and I was not willing to be counted a fool, and was for being almost any thing so that the Lord would be pleased without this, that I might not become a gazing stock to the world.

—Ruth Alcock Follows, 1718–1809
