Recollections of Miss Young, who accompanied her father, Captain Young, to female convict ships at Woolwich: "On board between two and three hundred women were assembled, in order to listen to the exhortation and prayers of, perhaps, the two brightest personifications of Christian philanthropy that the age could boast. Scarcely could two voices, even so distinguished for beauty and power be imagined, united in a more touching engagement: as indeed was intensified by the breathless attention, the tears and suppressed sobs of the gathered listeners. All of man"s word however there heard, heart-stirring as it was at the time, has faded from my memory; but no lapse of time can ever efface the impression of the 107th Psalm, as read by Mrs Fry, with such extraordinary emphasis and intonation that it seemed to make the simple reading a commentary; and, as she passed from passage to passage, struck my youthful mind, as if the whole series of allusions may have been written by the pen of inspiration, in view of such a scene as was then before us. At an interval of twenty years, it is recalled to me as often as that Psalm is brought to my notice. Never in this world, can it be known to how many hearts its solemn appeals were that day carried home by that potent voice"
