Abstract

“I left the home of my birth to gather. . . . The company with which I was to sail was all strangers to me. When I arrived at Liverpool and saw the ocean that would soon roll between me and all I loved, my heart almost failed me. But I had laid my idols all upon the altar. There was no turning back. . . . So I thus alone set out for the reward of everlasting life, trusting in God.”1
