The Scripture I know by heart is my most valuable mental treasure.
From F.R.H.’s Bible some of the chapters she learnt by heart are now given besides the whole of the Psalms, the four Gospels, and many typical and historical chapters and the minor prophets. In 1846 she learned Isaiah xii., liii., lv. In 1854 the Epistle to the Romans. In 1856 first chapter of Genesis, learned in Hebrew; also Isaiah i. In 1957 F.R.H. learned:
Epistle to the Hebrews Oct. 24.
Epistle of James Nov. 9.
1st Epistle of Peter Nov. 23.
2nd Epistle of Peter Dec. 5.
1st Epistle of John Dec. 22.
2nd Epistle of John Dec. 24.
3rd Epistle of John Dec. 26.
Romans, relearned Dec.
Jude Dec. 30.
Galatians Feb. 6, 1858.
Hence ten epistles learnt in five months!
