Lady Glenorchy, in her diary, relates her being seized with a fever, which threatened her life, "during the course of which," she says, "the first question of the Assembly's Catechism was brought to my mind — 'What is the chief end of man?' — as if some one had asked it. When I considered the answer to it, — 'To glorify, God and to enjoy Him forever,' — I was struck with shame and confusion. I found I had never sought to glorify God in my life, nor had I any idea of what was meant by enjoying Him forever. Death and judgment were set before me; my past sins came to my remembrance; I saw no way to escape the punishment due unto them, nor had I the least glimmering hope of obtaining pardon through the righteousness of another." From this unhappy state she was shortly after delivered, by faith in the Lord Jesus.
