And in this sense, one's great enemies are oftentimes those of one's own house'; and children, in their younger years, are greatly corrupted by the example and speeches of servants.

SEAFIELD, WHO DEPARTED THIS

1708. DONE for the use of her
CHILDREN.

"ANNA late Countess of Seafield, the eldest daughter of Sir William Dunbar of Durn, son to the Laird of Grangehill, and Janet Brodie his wife, grandchild of the Lord Brodie, was born in the year of God 1672, and bred up virtuously from her infancy by her parents, and particularly by her grandmother Lady Dunbar, who was a virtuous and pious woman, and took care to instil into her grandchild's mind, a sense of piety and devotion from her very infancy.

When she was about eight years of age, while reading the holy Scriptures, she happened to read these words, The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.' On which, reflecting on her own sinful state, she was struck with great terror, looking on herself as one of those against whon this is threatened. In this state.
