PETER LEVISHAM

remember how I hesitated that night before leaving my bedroom door unlocked.
`Those were the three occasions on which I met Peter Levisham prior to the trial. The 12th of November of that year was a Saturday. It is our custom at breakfast to read a portion of Scripture. I had closed the book and we were sitting for a few moments in silent meditation, when I felt it borne in upon me that my presence was required in London. Three or four times in my life I have had similar leadings. I have felt the presence of an impelling power, bidding me go I knew not whither to do I knew not what. It is a terrible experience, and I believe a very dangerous experience, one that no one should seek and which should be wrestled with in prayer to see whether it is of God. I retired to my own chamber, and then saw my sister and cancelled the engagements I had made for the morning. I travelled by train to Charing Cross, where I got out. Standing on the pavement in the Strand, I watched the stream of buses pass. I did not know which one to take. I did not know where I was going. While waiting, my attention was called to a blind man, who stood quite alone, and who seemed unaccustomed to the London traffic. I asked him if I could be of any assistance, and he handed me a slip of paper on which was written an address in the City. I told him that I would go with him, and we got on to a bus together. After seeing him to his destination, I walked a little way farther up the street, until I was accosted by a flower-woman, who stood immediately opposite a large block of offices. She was a cheery, importunate soul, and eventually she persuaded me into buying one of her roses. It was while I was speaking to the woman that I felt for the first time a strong conviction that I had rightly followed the leadings of my guide. I entered the block of offices, read the list of names in the lobby and, disregarding the lift, began to climb the stairs. I climbed to the very top of the building. On my right hand was a door marked "Mivart, Dixon & Co," on the left a door marked "P. W. Foster." I knocked at the latter and, as I did so, I heard the clocks strike the hour of eleven.
