Brother Hudson has sent me a sketch of the experience of his deceased wife, which I am (if spared) to read tomorrow after sermon. Feb. 5th. I walked from Blackhead to Adam’s Cove, to attend the funeral of Elizabeth Hudson; she died of a fever which she caught when on a visit at her relations. I don’t remember that ever I saw a more affecting scene than on this day; the people were afraid of coming near the corps [corpse]. When the remains of the deceased was brought to the door, the people stood at so great a distance, that my mind was very much pained, to think that she who had gone at all hours by night and day to attend the sick, and now scarsely [scarcely] any would come near her, who had been so kind to many of them when living! After we had sung a hymn at the door, I said to the women, if you are afraid and unwilling to bear the pall, I will; by speaking thus several came near, and at the church there was a great concourse of people. I read prayers and then preached; the people were much affected: I believe all were in tears. After preaching in the evening, I gave tickets to the society, and joined four new members: Lord help them to endure to the end. I have enjoyed a portion of comfort and peace in the past day — Lord make me thankful. I shall here insert a sketch of the life and death of Elizabeth Hudson, who died on the second of February, 1797: — E.H. was the daughter of Mr. Clemens Newell, a respectable planter of Fresh-Water-Cove: Here she was born; and twenty-six years ago, she was convinced of sin; from that time she sought the Lord in good earnest, and before long, the Lord gave her a sence [sense] of his favour, and shed abroad his love in her heart. She was now more determined than ever to wage war against the world, the flesh, and the devil; and through God’s grace, she has been a faithful servant of Christ to the end. Twenty-five years ago, she was married to John Hudson, of Adam’s Cove; they received each other with prayer, and in the fear of God; both of them were determined to serve God in spirit and in truth. The deceased has been diligent in all the means of grace, both public and private, going through all kinds of weather, frost and snow, winter and summer, to worship her God; and he did not let his faithful handmaid go a warfare at her own charge but frequently caused her to sit under the droppings of the sanctuary, and gave her that fruit which was sweet to her taste. She manifested an ardent desire after the happiness of all around her, often inviting her neighbours to come to Christ; she prayed with and for the afflicted and unconverted. Thus she went on till the Lord afflicted her body, and called her soul to eternal repose. She was confined to her room fourteen days, during that time, she manifested a Christian spirit, in bearing her affliction with patience and resignation to the divine will. The last words she repeated were,
- God of love that hear’st the prayer,
- Kindly for thy people care;
- Who on thee alone depend:
- Love us, save us to the end!
- And for ever, and for ever,
- And for evermore, Amen.
I preached her funeral sermon to a crouded [crowded] church, the scene was affecting, all present were in tears.
