Thus saith the Lord, my servant and
his house shall be numbered with the blessed and Abraham their father,
and his name shall be had in sacred rem[em]brance.
And again thus saith the Lord, let my people be aware of dissensions
among them lest the ene my have power <over> them, Awake my
shepherds and warn my people! for behold the wolf cometh to destroy
them! receive him not. Now
I would inform you that my health is good and also that of my family,
and it is my earnest prayer to God that health, peace, and pleanty
may crown your board and
blessings of Heaven rest upon the head of him in whom the Lord hath
said there is no guile.
