Mary Prince et al. in Spring Gardens Moravian Church, St John's, Antigua - between 1818 and at the end of 1820
from The History of Mary Prince, a West Indian Slave. Related by Herself. With a Supplement by the Editor., page 17:
The Moravian ladies (Mrs. Richter, Mrs. Olufsen, and Mrs. Sauter) taught me to read in the class; and I got on very fast. In this class there were all sorts of people, old and young, grey headed folks and children; but most of them were free people. After we had done spelling, we tried to read in the Bible. After the reading was over, the missionary gave out a hymn for us to sing. I dearly loved to go to the church, it was so solemn. I never knew rightly that I had much sin till I went there.
