New York: B. Waugh and T. Mason, 1833. Revised Edition. Number 41 of the Sunday School and Youth’s Library. An apparently uplifting, but rather disturbing, work about two pious siblings who died young and within a year of each other.

One of many warnings in the book, “when the young die strangers to religion, the horrible thought often wrings the heart of surviving parents, that they have gone from the agonies of disease to the torments of hell.”
