By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house…
One dear old man, who at the ripe age of seventy-eight, became a humble childlike Christian, and who twice in the week used to walk eight miles to hear me, had one favourite version of the words which caused his conversion, to which he adhered with frightful fixity and retailed to every one he met. "There were three of us old men a-settin' together, and you turned and you shook your little finger at us, and you said, 'You old men there, you are going to hell as fast as your old legs can carry you!' I never felt so afeared in my life, and I have been a changed man ever since."
