In conclusion hereof, I thought fit to acquaint the pious Reader, how after that Mrs. Wentworth, by the contrivance of her Husband, was turned out of her House, which he did lett unknown to her; and then, she being commanded by the Lord not to quit it, he took away all, not a Stool to sit upon, not a Bed, nor any thing else left; and afterwards sent three of her Cosins, who took her out the House by force at Midsummer 1677. But in the year 1678. April 26. the Word of the Lord came unto her, saying, That he would return her, at Midsummer next following, into the same House again, notwithstanding all oppositions of men whatsoever, in despight of their Malice. And though her Husband would let her have no Houshold-stuff, Bedding, and the like; yet he, the Lord, would provide her with all suitable conveniencies, and Money too for her maintenance and House-Rent, by such as she never saw before: And that should be for a sign, that he, the Lord hath sent her, to give warning to the Nation, that an unheard-of overturn was coming upon them, unless they repent. Now all this, according to the Word of the Lord, is come to pass; for though all manner of oppositions from all sides, directly and indirectly, have been made, yet when the time, appointed by the Lord, was come, the Door of the House was opened to her, (by whom, God knows, for to this day she knows it not) and she entrd111 freely and took possession. Soon after Beds were brought in, Chairs, Tables, and all manner of useful Furniture; Money also was and is not wanting to this day: yea more bountiful has been, and still is the Lord, then he promised, even to the astonishment of all that have been, and are eye-witnesses of it. Thus wonderfully doth the Lord own, that he hath sent her. Whereof if any desires further satisfaction, he may have it from her self; whilst the whole thing it self, being of a larger extent, then to be crowded in here, is making ready to be published.
