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.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
