Susanna Anthony

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Susanna Anthony's diary, in which she blamed the devil as the cause of her temptations, fears, and woeful condition. Growing up as a Quaker, Anthony experienced conversion around the age of fifteen. After her conversion, she showed signs of hope in her writings as she sought relief from sin through divine mercy. In 1742, she joined the First Congregational Church at Newport pastored by the Puritan Nathaniel Clap.

Keywords:   diary, Susanna Anthony, devil, conversion, sin, divine mercy, First Congregational Church, Nathaniel Clap
