An early American religious tract that tells the story of French maid Armelle Nicolas and her "child-like, hearty, and confident conversing with God as her only love, her father, and intimate friend." This short English work was translated from a section of the 1704 French work "L'école du pur amour de Dieu" in the hopes that "some able pen or other" might be inspired to translate the entirety of the humbly pious woman's story into English.
        WorldCat records suggest this could have been => a tract printed for Anthony Benezet (1713–84), a French-born educator and abolitionist who immigrated to Philadelphia.
