"I then saw in my dream, that they went on until they came into a certain country whose air naturally tended to make one drowsy, if he came a stranger into it. And here hopeful began to be very dull and heavy to sleep; wherefore he said unto Christian, I do now begin to grow so drowsy that I can scarcely hold open mine eyes; let us lie down here and take one nap. By no means, said the other; lest sleeping, we never awake more. " Hope. Why, my brother. sleep is sweet to the laboring man; we may be refreshed, if we take a nap. " Chr.

He meant by that, that we should beware of sleeping: 'Wherefore, let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.'" [P. 22.]
