Representative Text

Bright scenes of glory strike my sense,
And all my passions capture;
Eternal beauties round me shine,
Infusing warmest rapture.
I live in pleasures deep and full,
In swelling waves of glory
I feel my Savior in my soul,
And groan to tell my story.

The Southern Harmony

Author: Sarah Jones

Jones, Sarah. (1753--1794). A Methodist, she spent her entire life in Mecklenburg, Virginia. Her husband, Tygnal Jones, owned 70 or 80 slaves, and "was quite averse" to their emancipation. An extremely spiritual woman, she left correspondence with a number of Methodist ministers who worked in that area: Devout letters; or, Letters spiritual and friendly. Correct and published by Jeremiah Minter, minister of the Gospel . . . . (Alexandria, Va., printed by Samuel Snowden, 1804. viii, 154 p.). In his introduction, Minter mentions The Life and Death of Mrs. Jones which he had recently written, but no copies of this are known. --Leonard Ellinwood, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
