Two-Wealthy Farmery .<&c»
IT was uienj&onedi m $he laft part of this Hiftoiyi
hJiat tshei cniefi reafon which had. drawn Mr. Worthy to vifit his frisB$j,iift at the pfcefdnt time, was,
that Mr. Bragwell had a fmall Eftate to fell by
a^QaPri: .Mr. Worithy,. ibough he didvnobthimfche
friould be a bidder, wifliad to be pceTent, as.be> had-
bufinefs to fetBe wh%ajiepor twoperfons who warn2

fubjeft; but here, as ufual, they had two opinions
about, the fame thing.    Mr. Bragwell's notion of an
ufeful fubjeft wasj- fomething by which money was
to be£g£&$■•■andra.-rgood bargain ffcuck*.    Mr. Worthy was no lefs a man of bufinefs than his friend.
His fchemes were wife, and his calculations juftj
his reputation   for integrity and good fenfe made
tBfm the common judge and umpire in bis neighbours'
affairs, while no one paid a more exa£l attention
to every tranfaflion  of Rjs own.    But the bufin.gfs
of getting money was not WlfhhinYJl^nrfty,much
lefs was it the whole concern of the day.    Every
morning when he rofe, he remembered that he had
a Maker to worfhip as well as a family to maintain.
Religion, however,^neA?JS& made~him negleft bufinefs, though it fometimes led him   to poftponeMjl
He ufed to fay, no man had .any reafon to expect
God's bleffing through the day who did not afk it
in the" morning.    But he had not the lefs fenfe j ffHF
pint and activity when he was among men  abroad;
beeaufe he had ftrft ferved God atpifemer|ff!
As thefdttwo Farmers rode along, Mr. Worthy
took occafion, from the frnienefs of the: day, and
the beauty of the country through which they paffed,'.
to turn the difoourfe to the' goodnefs of God and
our infinite obligations to him.|a;He knew that the
tranfition from thankfgiving t<S&'prayer would be
natural and eafy, and he therefore Aid, by degrees,
into thafsimportant fubjeft: and. he obferved that
fecret prayer was a duty of uj§rverfal obligation,
which every man had it in his>po.wer to fulfil, and
which he ferioufly bedievsed Was'the ground-work
jpf all religious pracUksejdsmd of^*devout affections,

Mr. Bragwell;fj|i.t cbajcious that^he was yej^fiegi
Jigent and irregular in^the per,^rmance of this
f$&tyi. he confider.ed it as a mere ceremony, or at
| leaf^s a diity which might give way to the flighteft
. temptation; of drownnefs at night, or of blpnefs
.in ^fjq^[^rj^.*^.s he^iew he did riotjji^e in the
JJ^onfeienttoii^l^ this pracfice'j berried
to ward off the fubjecT, kiiowing what a hoiifj .way
his friend had of putting things; At Taft he faidj
j he certainly thought private prayer a good cuftom,
. efpecially for people w.hjS.have time, and that thofe
>yho were .fick, or Qldj or oup^df^ufinefsj c'oujtt?
