asperated him that he blasphemed the Saviour in
such a wilful, malicious and wicked manner
that will not bear putting in print.

he seated himself in a chair, where he had re
mained but a few minutes before he turned to
bis wife and asked her what she said She re
plied tbat she had not spoken ?1 thought.' said
