Reflections of Sarah Thomas, an unfortunate young woman, who was executed for stealing two surplices, out of St. Mary's Church, London. These few lines are dedicated to all young persons, in hopes they will take warning by the untimely end of the said young woman, and refrain from vice, for as the apostle St. Paul says, "the wages of sin is death"
