"Now about the midway to the top of the hill was a pleasant arbor made by the lord of the hill, for the refreshment of weary travelers. Thither, therefore, Christian got, where also he sat down to rest him; then he pulled his roll out of his bosom, and read therein to his comfort; he also now began afresh to take a review of the coat or garment that was given to him as he stood by the cross. Thus pleasing himself awhile, he at last fell into a slumber, and thence into a fast sleep, which detained him in that place until it was almost night; and in his sleep his roll fell out of his hand. Now as he was sleeping, there came one to him, and awaked him saying, 'Go to the ant, thou sluggard, consider her ways and be wise.,' And with that, Christian suddenly started up, and sped him on his way, and went apace till he came to the top of the hill." [P. 10.]
