This is a collection of tracts which includes the story of a deacon traveling through eastern Vermont near the Connecticut River, where he finds refuge from a thunderstorm in the cottage of an impoverished farm woman hungry for the word of God, but lacking a Bible.  The frugal deacon had just enough money to get to his destination, but decided to give her the weighty sum of a dollar to purchase a Bible.  He later learns that the woman not only bought the Bible, but led a revival in her community.

Adopted by Monica Mercado in honor of Catherine Brekus
