Dr. C. E. Cornell says:
“A woman dropped a tract or a little book in the way of Richard Baxter. He picked it up and read it and was thus led to Christ.
He wrote a book entitled, ‘A Call to the Unconverted,’ which brought many persons to the Savior, among whom was Philip Doddridge.
This man in turn wrote ‘The Rise and Progress of Religion,’ which led among others the great Wilberforce to God.
Wilberforce wrote ‘A Practical View of Christianity,’ which was the means of the salvation of multitudes; among them was Leigh Richmond.
This man wrote the book entitled ‘The Dairyman’s Daughter’ which has been instrumental in the salvation of many thousands.
Of this incident Dr. Jowett says, “What a small thing the dropping of that tract was, but what a wonderful many-branched tree has sprung from it.”
