Mary Ann Kelty

Mary Ann Kelty (1789-1873) was a teacher and author in England who appears to have discovered the writings of early Friends later in her life. Though she plainly shows herself to be in perfect accord with the principles and practices of the primitive Quakers, she lived in a time of great declension from the original purity and power in the Society, and probably for that reason, never formally joined with them in membership (though she is said to have frequently attended the Friends’ meeting house at Peckham). Her book “The Lives and Persecutions of the Primitive Quakers” is a very well-written, short history of the early Society of Friends, highlighting the most noteworthy figures and remarkable events of that time.

Permit the word of exhortation, upon a point wherein it seems to me you are in some danger—it is that of mixing up the pure, distinct, interior principle of faith in the gift of God, as an invisible and spiritual thing, only to be known, apprehended, believed in, felt, and obeyed, by the inward senses of the new-born creature—-I say, it is to be feared, that you mix and confound this precious, living thing, with the notional, historical knowledge, which is to be picked up from the letter that describes it.

This short collection of dialogues between a mother and her young daughter was written by Mary Ann Kelty (1789-1873) in order to illustrate the necessity of identifying and uprooting the root of sin in children, before it grows strong and unyielding. “It is not,” says Kelty, “by lopping off the branches of corruption that the instructor of youth can hope to be of service,” but rather by helping them to an early and deep familiarity with the Light of Jesus Christ, that living “Word in the heart” which manifests all that is contrary to Truth, and gives power to become the children of God.
