account of our journey by Wm Embree, and I felt myself so in
-debted to father as rendered it requisite for me to comply with
his request, but looking over, and seeing how imperfectly it
was, almost discouraged me attempting, for I cannot con
-cieve it will be any way entertaining excepting a lit
-tle bare information. I often feel myself very defective
in literary knowledge and my Ideas in matters of conse
quence much confined, let those whose genius are more
brightened have charity, and accept dear father my com
munications flowing from the sincerity of the heart, my
mind has felt very much wean'd from the worlds applause
