Graham, Mary Jane
Graham, Mary Jane was born in London in 1803, and was so carefully educated, and so industrious in study, that she acquired a knowledge of nearly all the modern languages, as also of Latin, Greek, and mathematics. In her eighteenth year she fell into infidel doubts, but soon emerged from them into Christian light and hope. To save others from a like experience, she wrote the Test of Truth (London, 12mo, 7th ed. 1852), giving aaccount of her mental exercises, her infidelity, and her conversion. She also wrote a treatise on The Freeness and Sovereignty of God's Grace, published after her death (12mo). Her last years ware full of suffering, but she died in great peace and joy at Stoke Fleming, Devonshire, in December 1830.
