Love or lust statement 35

As a new convert and a former prostitute from the Five Points, Mrs. Bolton would, quote. ‘Confess openly’ regarding her past sins to Pierson, while in the company of Sojourner-Truth. I should point out that Sojourner-Truth is the housekeeper for the Pierson family at their New York residence. Interestingly we read, quote. ‘In these confessions, she (Mrs. Bolton) admitted that she had lived in fornication; that she had used much skill and cunning in seducing men, and had received large sums of money from different gentlemen.’ On numerous occasions, Mrs. Bolton appears to enjoy her confessions to Elijah Pierson, due to her ability and willingness to reveal salacious details, we read that she would, quote. ‘Even describe the manner in which she communicated her inclinations to various dry goods merchants and clerks of whom she betrayed by naming to Mr. Pierson.’ (Ref: N20. The shocking confessions from Mrs. Bolton and the scriptural readings from Mr. Pierson resulted in a union of unusual compromises! Like a lamb to the slaughter Elijah, quote. ‘Believed her repentance sincere, and he was strengthened by a text of Scripture which he often quoted about harlots entering the kingdom of heaven before others.’
