Set of soon this Morning for Wil-

-law Amos Garretts, before Meeting 15m & where
we left our horses, where I heard from
my dear Wife and family, being the
first account I had from them since I
left home. and I left truly thankfull
I was so near my own habitation, and
among my near relations, and inti
-mate friends. We returned here from
Meeting and got our dinners, and
set of homewards, our roads parting
on the way, we took an affectionate fare-

travelled more than 1200 miles in near
unity, and Christian fellowship through
some proving dispensations. I got home
in the evening, and found my Dear
Wife and family all well, by whom
I was gladly recieved. and I felt thank
-full I was got once more amongst them
