Of the two martyrs, whose histories, such as they are, we have recorded, enough has been said in the following essays. Our great object has been to connect general historical with particular biographical illustrations..." Contains the lives of Walter Mylne (c1476-1558 and Wallace Adam.

Wise state in his Preface: "The widow whose trials are recorded in these pages was well known to the writer. He had the pleasure of aiding her to escape from her hour of thickest gloom; and of witnessing the ripeness of her piety toward the end of her life. In writing this narrative, he has taken the liberty to enlarge and expand somewhat the original facts and conversations, which were stated to him by the lady herself. Names, places and dates are also changed, or concealed for obvious reasons. The work, therefore, is substantially a record of facts; and the writer hopes it may engrave some lines of truth on the susceptible minds of the youth, for whom he writes. D.W. Elm-Street Parsonage, New-Bedford, 1852."
