OF THE LATE
MRS ANN JOHNSTONE,
WILLOW PARK, GREENOCK.
THE MERCY OF THE LORD IS FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING UPON
THEM THAT FEAR HIM, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO CHILDREN'S CHILDREN."
PSALM CIII. 17.
EDINBURGH: WILLIAM OLIPHANT AND SONS.
GLASGOW: W. COLLINS, AND D. ROBERTSON.
FAMILY OF THE LATE MRS JOHNSTONE,
THE FOLLOWING RECOLLECTIONS
WITH UNFEIGNED ESTEEM AND AFFECTION.
THEIR OWN AND THEIR PARENTS' FRIEND.
THE following brief Memoir was originally printed for private circulation. The writer would never have presumed to give it to the world, had not its publication been urged both orally and in writing, by a number of Christian Friends, whose opinions she felt to be entitled to respectful consideration. With great reluctance she at length yielded to their reiterated solicitations; and, the family having kindly given their consent, she now, with the utmost diffidence, sends forth this little volume, praying that its perusal may be blessed by Him, to whose glory the subject of it lived, and rejoicing in whom, she died. As a specimen of many similar communications, addressed to the writer, she selects the following, the perusal of which, she trusts, will lead her readers to the conclusion, that she was not altogether without excuse, in consenting to submit to the public eye, what has been to her indeed a labour of love.
