Mrs. S. was talking of going to different churches when a child, & "Gordie" remarked "you were not a Baptist because you were not taught anything else” & she replied—"I was died in the wool all the same."
Used to take hold of her father's hand and walk to the Episcopal Church. Liked to go there for they had a great bass viol that reached above her head.
Attended the "Line bock Presbyter" church sometimes. when the weather was bad, her mother would go to Pres. Church instead of Bap., three miles away.
The silk harmonies & very high pulpit with sounding board of Epis. Ch. attracted.
The best of all when "Elder Powell" "used to come to make his pastoral visits."
