Title Gentile Account, page 054
Description ceremonies, but failed to divert him from-what he evidently considered more valuable-an account of his labours among the degraded classes of "Shoreditch" and "Whitechapel". He made a point, though in a story, (I hope not J. Millerite)64 which he introduced to illustrate the text, "That husbands may without the word be won by chaste conversation coupled with fear." "When I was preaching in London" he said, "a sister came up to me after Meeting to ask advice. Her husband wouldn't allow her to bless the meat at table. What should she do? `Why', says I, `bless it out in the kitchen before putting it on the table.' `Well, brother,' she answered slowly `that seems like a bowin' down in the House of Rimmon.`h5 I looked pretty sharply at her. She was one who attended all the meetings regularly, and I often wondered how she found time to do it. She always looked sad, a kind of worrying sad, you understand. Said I, `I'd like to ask you a few questions about this unbe- lieving husband of yours. Does he ill-treat you?' `Oh no! But he grumbles at me bein' away, and says `So, you're agoin' off to that Mormon meetin' again are you', and swears.' `Would you like him to come to Meeting with you, Sister?' I asked. `Oh yes, indeed, Brother [unreadable].' h+J. Miller means a stale jest and was named for Joseph Miller, a popular comedian of the previous century who could neither read nor byrite.
