Excerpt from A Missionary Life, Stephen Grellet

A Missionary Home or Foreign Both. The world was his parish, any part of it to which God bade him go.

In the summer of 1798, the city of Philadelphia wore a strange and solemn air. The streets so lately crowded were almost deserted. The awful plague of yellow fever raged. Many had ?ed for their lives, leaving their sick to the care of hired nurses. The bodies of the dead were carried to the grave with no convoy but that of he arse and driver. The Meetings of Friends were almost the only places of public worship kept unclosed. A member of that Society, a young Frenchman, who had been in Philadelphia for more than three years, whilst away on a religious mission, had heard of the panic there, and with his soul burdened on behalf of its inhabitants, resolved to return. Heedless of the entreaties of his friends, he might have seemed, for he could not tell them how sure had been his call thither.
