INTERIOR OR HIDDEN LIFE,
DESIGNED PARTICULARLY FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF THOSE
WHO ARE SEEKING ASSURANCE OF FAITH
AND PERFECT LOVE.
BY THOMAS C. UPHAM.
Entered according to act of Congress, in the year 1843, in the
District Clerk's Office of the Court of Maine.
PRESS OF J. GRIFFIN, BRUNSWICK.
It is the object of the present Work to aid in promoting Holy Living. It will be noticed, that the principles of the Work take for granted, and every where imply, that man ought to be, and may be holy. Holiness is the one great thing, for which, above all others, man should live. It has been my desire, in the following pages, some of which have already appeared in a periodical publication, to promote this great result.
There are reasons of a personal nature, why I should not have written. There are other reasons, which none can appreciate but myself, which seemed to me imperatively to require it. If what is said is true, nothing but good can ultimately flow from it. If it be otherwise, it is my earnest supplication that He, who can bring good out of evil, will overrule the mistakes of human infirmity, to the glory of his own name.
