Comments

A widely reprinted tract by the Quaker minister Sophia Hume (1702-1774), who was born and bred in luxury in Charleston, South Carolina, but cast off her material lifestyle and converted to the Quaker view in 1740. Like many of her religious tracts, in A Caution to Such as Observe Days and Times she delivers a jeremiad against sinful pathways and false religiosity that she herself experienced as a young woman in Charleston.
