"Now I saw, upon a time, when he was walking in the fields, what he was (as he was wont) reading in his book, and greatly distressed in his mind; and as he read, he burst out, as he had done before, crying, 'What shall I do to be saved.' " I saw also that he looked this way and that way, as if he would run: yet he stood still, because (as I perceived) he could not tell which way to go. I looked then and saw a man named evangelist coming to him, and he asked, wherefore dost thou cry. " He answered, Sir, I perceive, by the book in my hand, that I am condemned to die, and after that to come to judgement; and I find that I am not willing to do the first, nor able to do the second. ' Then said evangelist, point with his finger over a very wide field. Do you see yonder wicket gate. The man said, no. Then said the other, do you see yonder shining light. He said, I think I do. Then said the evangelist, keep that light in your eye, and go up directly thereto, so shalt thou see the gate: at which, when thou knockest, it shall be told thee what thou shalt do." [P. 5-6.]
