Excerpt from Woman's Worth: Or Hints to Raise the Female Character Angelic beings, bright and beautiful in form and raiment, might have stood by his side, and pointed out to his astonished gaze the uses of the glorious things by which he was surrounded.

It could only have been with awe and veneration that Adam listened to the words of the heavenly visitants, though love to the solitary man might have caused them to make the disclosures.
