Jacob Lindley’s Account

Page out of 108

Attended Muncey meeting, to our comfort.
Dined at Samuel Wallace's, and went to William
’s to lodge.


Attended an appointed meeting at Muncey,
in the forenoon, and one at Samuel Harris's in the
afternoon: both large, — favoured seasons.


Had a solemn parting opportunity with
Samuel Wallace and William Ellis's families. Left
Loyalsock creek behind, crossed Muncey, and rode
thirty miles, to Northumberland, a town of about
thirty houses, pleasantly situated between the north
and south branches of Susquehanna, at their junc-
tion: near which place, we crossed the Chilisquagus.


Visited Hannah Miller, Richardson and
wife, Josiah Haines and wife, in the forenoon; to
the peace of my mind. Afternoon, had a solid meet-
ing in the Methodists' house.

Set out — crossed the west branch — rode
down the west side of the river to Litle's ferry,
where I rode the river: having travelled thirty-one
miles. Lodged at Michael Bowers's, whose wife is
a daughter of Cornelius Lane, and desired her love
to Thomas Gibson.

Litle's ferry is twenty miles from Harrisburgh,
and about three miles from Peters' mountain.

Hence the company proceeded to their several
homes — having been absent on this toilsome, exer-
cising journey, about four months and a half.
