Mr. Richard Baxter 125 may juflly condemn me for the bell Duty I ever did : and all my hopes are from thefree Mercy of God in Chrifl, which he often prayed fora After a flurnber he wak'd and Paid, I ¡hall refit from my Labour a Minifter then prefent faid, And your Works follow you : to whom he replyed, No Works, Iwill leave out Works, if Godwill grant me she other. When a Friend was comfort- ing himwith the remembranceof thegood many had received by his preaching and Writings, he faid, I was but a Pen in God's hand, anr what praife is due to a Pen. His refign'd Submifiìon to the Will of God in his Tharp Sicknefs, was eminent. When extremityof pain conflrain'd him earnealy to pray to God for his releafe by Death, he would check himfelf; It is not fit for me to prefcribe andfaid, when thou wilt,.what thou wilt, how thou wilt.
