Hello? Is Anyone There?

Anyone still reading The Life and Diary of David Brainerd? I still have about a fifth of the book to go. I jotted these thoughts down the other day, after reading about DB's death:

I think: What a life well-lived! He used his "dash" (It's been said that all we get is a dash between two dates) wholly for Christ--even on the agony of his death-bed. This book has not always been easy to read or enjoyable, even, but it has been solidly encouraging. DB's example is so high and praiseworthy, we should think on it and be sharpened and encouraged.
