no other men can do. You must proclaim the Gospel in its simplicity and
purity. and we commend you to God and the word of his grace. You have
our best wishes, you have our most fervent prayers, that you may be able
to bear this testimony, that you have seen the face of God.
Therefore, call upon him in faith and mighty prayer, till you prevail, for
it <is> your duty and your
privelege to bear such testimony for yourselves. We now exhort you to be
faithful to fulfil your calling, there must be no lack here. You must
fulfil in all things, and permit is us to
repeat, all nations have a claim on you. You are bound together as the
three wit nesses were. You, notwithstanding can part & meet &
meet and part again till your heads are silvered o[v]er with age.

take part in this ministry, to proclaim the gospel with all diligence
with these your brethren, according to the tenor and intent of the
charge you have received, each of which answered in the affirmative.
