of the Different Opinion from the learn ed Gentleman who fpoke firft to the Quef tion r Firft I deny that Trade can be carried on without Religion for how often is the Sanction of an Oath neceffary in and how can we have Oaths without Re ligion As to the gaining one Day in fe which the Gentleman ieems to lay much Strefs I do admit it to be an Argument great Force but I as the People have been long ufed to Idle nefs on that whether it would be eafy to make them work upon it if they had no Churches to go whether they would not refort to fome Place As to the Expence of Par I cannot think it is prejudicial to the Society in general for the Parfons are Members of this Society and whether they who do but or others who do nothing at all for their poflefs their Re is a Matter of no manner of Con

Something about Beads and and Patty and Ivy and I will fight for it as Jong as I am and And upon my Shoul I witf tell you a good if you are afraid of your own you may fend for for I know it will come
