Dedicated to Dr John Lettsom, who was known to sign his prescriptions, 'I. Lettsom':Whenever patients come to I,

Faith is the nail which fastens the soul to Christ; and love is that grace that drives the nail to the head. Faith takes hold of Him, and love helps to keep the grip. Christ dwells in the heart by faith, and He burns in the heart by love, like a fire melting the breast. Faith casts the knot, and love draws it fast.
