How many of them can you include?

I'd say they include the dedication on his tombstone, as well as the statement he makes on the page before:

"You can come any time now," he said, looking skyward, "for I'm ready."

I'm very struck by a line in the Boston 1725-1740 chapter:
"But don't you want your freedom?" Celia would ask Amos time and again.
"No," he would reply," not yet awhile."
