This hopeful neighborhood have been assembled in honor of the new-comer; whilst our publications made us a brief exhortation: i used to be conjured to be obedient to the grace that Heaven had bestowed on me; the remaining have been admonished to help me with their prayers, and provides me edification through their reliable instance.
