"One came to the Refuge who was led astray by the abominable villainy of one in this city, who called himself respectable, and was called so by others, at the tender age of fourteen; and after years of infamy, and wretchedness, too horrible to be told, she was awakened by the awful warnings and dying agonies, of one of her wretched companions." Inlcudes the appended annual lreport of the society. American Imprints 24407.
