11It is worth noting that two of these were there directly as a result of the influence of Basil Manly. His son, Basil, Jr., for whom he prayed in 1831: “O may the Lord smile upon the child — early lead to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and employ him in thy service. My one desire is that he may early become a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ and may live to the glory of Him who loved us and gave himself for us.” J. P. Boyce came under the ministry of Basil Manly as a result of the conversion of his mother, who was moved to seek God after the death of the Manly’s son, John Waldo, at less than a year of age. Manly wrote in his diary, “the will of the Lord is done and I have not a word to say in opposition to it.” Later Mrs. Ker Boyce requested a visit and told Manly that her mind was first “seriously awakened” by the sermon he preached on the occasion of that death. See Manly’s Diary. pp. 147, 148, 172.
