In order to attempt to cheat the devil, Tom became "... a violent church-goer. He prayed loudly and strenuously as if heaven were to be taken by force of lungs."
"Tom was as rigid in religious, as in money matters; he was a stern supervisor and censurer of his neighbors, and seemed to think every sin entered up to their account became a credit on his own side of the page."
"... it is said he always carried a small bible in his coat pocket."
