Set of just under 200 small paper slips, rolled and inserted in a honeycomb pattern into a shallow box. Each slip consists of three printed quotations on various Christian themes. The first two quotations consist of one or two lines of Bible verse, with book, chapter, and verse noted. The second of these, printed in italics, is very frequently a Psalm. The third text consists of two to four lines from English hymns (titles not noted). A sample slip reads: "Be of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.--Luke 8:48. / I will trust in the covert of Thy wings.--Psalm 61:4. / Heal us, Immanuel, here we are, Waiting to feel Thy touch; Deep wounded souls to Thee repair, And, Saviour, we are such."
