“…I went into the woods one morning… a light appeared to shine from heaven… My mind seemed to rise in that light to the throne of God and the Lamb… The Lamb once slain appeared to my understanding, and while viewing him, I felt such love to him as I never felt to any thing earthly… It is not possible for me to tell how long I remained in that situation,”

Elias Smith, The Life, Conversion, Preaching, Travels, and Sufferings of Elias Smith (Portsmouth, NH: Beck & Foster, 1816), 58-59.
