LL 27, in small part, and altered. Small sheet, bottom third torn away. Johnson omits "little" from the last sentence, "till this little heart. . . ." He notes the reference to Solomon Stoddard and Ethan Allen Andrews, A Grammar of the Latin Language for Schools and Colleges (Boston, 1837), as well as that to the New Testament: "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (I Corinthians 2.9).
