That None Be Left Behind

From a letter by Andrew Fuller to a relative, August, 1784:

My heart longs for you and the dear children. Give my love to them, and tell them to seek after the salvation of their souls; for they must soon die, as well as we. Let them not think that to be religious is to be melancholy; for surely to live in the fear of God is the happiest life in the world; and to die in his favour how desirable! May this be the case with us all. I long that none of the family may be left behind.
