"...Never before did I gaze so earnestly mentally into that dark unknown world & seek to the position I must occupy there. At this moment I trust I made a sincere, honest surrender of myself to God, the maker of my & the preserver of my life. ...I asked for life if that might be a useful one. Let me remember this in future years."
