Tub epistle from tub a Manly my Kino Virld in London by adjournments from the 20th of to if 5th month to the 30th of the same inclusive 18 is. To the quarterly and monthly meet a amp of Ehi bsds in great Britain Ireland and elsewhere. Deah fiends being permitted to sect at the present time to investigate the state of our religious society and participating together in that love whish we believe takes its origin in the boundless mercy of Goth through Christ our holy redeemer through him who died for us we have found this love to extend to you our Brethren. We have considered your situation whether in your larger or smaller meetings and As we have again been impressed with the belief that in renewing the written salutation of our love we shall be found in the Way of stir duty we have desired to be directed to impart to you Stich information and counsel As May tend to your increase in the fear of the lord and in the consolations of his presence. Seeing therefore the infinite value of love that qualification of a True disciple we Are desirous of pressing it on every individual to examine impartially crw far he feels it to flourish in his own mind and to influence All his actions thus inducing others to follow film As he is endeavouring to follow Christ. And we believe that nothing will be of favourable the preservation of thin holy disposition As humility of heart a temper in which we constantly see ourselves unworthy of the least of the lords mercies Aqa i Pendant Only on his Compa amp Sion for our final acceptance. Seeing also that no awakened mind can be without a View to a better and a enduring state and that no one knows How soon he May be called to put off mutability let us keep in perpetual recollection that in the state to which we aspire there is nothing but eternal Praise Joy and adoration in the presence of him through whose love we were first awakened. In contemplating this copious subject though we Are not apprehensive of More symptoms of deficiency than in former years we Feci disposed afresh to encourage friends to be prompt in undertaking and prudent in executing the blessed of iliac of pc acc maker. And we believe the patient endeavours of faithful friends will be generally crowned with Success in proportion As their own minds Are seeking to Jesus for assistance in performing an office on which he has pronounced his blessings a and in endeavouring to Lead the minds of any contending persons to a sense of the absolute necessity for All True disciples to live in peace one with another and to forgive one another even As god Lor Chiist a bake has forgiven them. Before we quit the subject of Chi is Tian love let us remind you that no limit of a name can bound its influence. In this season of almost unprecedented pressure on some of the poorer classes of our countrymen we deem it particularly desirable that our dear friends every where should not be backward in examining into their distresses but Liberal in contributing a due proportion of Relief. Many Are allowed to have temporal possessions sufficient to do this with comparative ease let those therefore remember that they Are but stewards and let them seek to be Good and faithful stewards. And it is probable that others not equally abounding in the Good things of this life May Liuti that in using moderation in their own expenditure they May have wherewith to Supply the wants of others and to make the heart of the poor Man sing for Joy. Of the Blessing of clothing the naked and feeding the hungry who would not desire to be entitled to a share in it moderation in personal and Domestic expend be every Way become the followers of a lowly hearted Saviour. We Are therefore engaged to press it upon our Young friends just setting out in life to beware of needless expense in the furniture of their houses and in their general Domestic la bits. Even those who think their property May entitle them to abundance or to elegance by indulging in costly habits Are setting but an ill example to those of More contracted Means and As we Are but that which coincides with our natural disposition our want of circumspection May prove an incitement to extra a ence in others and prompt them to use exertions for supporting an appearance which divert them from the Truo business daily i Tuff to be approved in we Juht of god. And dear you a my eneral specially you whole period of a a re a not be of advanced As that of Thole Wii Itu we have just addressed even you who Jiffy or Are about to Teavor the Protection a Parent to enter into the Busy scenes of life some of you probably in populous towns far dist Tel from the retirement of your path real abodes we beseech you to guard against the new temptations which Way now assail the first incitement to any Liberty inconsistent with your principles and be willing to seek the society of experienced Fri rods in the places where you May be situated and to re chive their admonition with meekness and Artemiou. Never forget that lift season of Early youth is a be amp Aoa danger p funds a cars Lens Tittle be led to cry in who Lias said amen for Ever to be i will m no Sph. In. 32. And if you g you will from for preserve and his words a a him that come Wise cast out. A the usual amp counts of sufferings brought in Titis year chiefly for tithes and those called Church rates and for military demands amount to thirteen thousand six Hundred and forty Fiva five to ing men have a eco imprisoned for refusing to serve ii who local these and other accounts which to have received few our several quarterly meeting a Haye an epistle from Ireland and one from cach of the yearly meetings on the a me Van continent. The yearly meetings of a our Anun ice i Brethren seem vigilant in their tto tit it a to the support of our testimonies and to purposes of Benevolence. The due education of our youth still forms a part of a i it concern of the yearly meeting of j which has also together r with those of Maryland and new York continued to Chi c for the inhabitants of the wilderness and those of Carolina Virginia and Maryland testify in their epistles their concern Nib the amp Ute of the enslaved africans in their land. Although in our country a amp Well As in theirs Trie n famous traffic w Africa in slaves has been abolished 6y la of we desire Friend not to forget slavery still it within the British Empire and to their sympathy flow awards its oppressed victims. Thus dear v give we May say that to u and at Home the lord is a. servants to remain i the 4vatch. Though the sub jul Tsoi Nii a it it a Ein May be somewhat various it i still pleasant to reflect that All u e Aiu ung at the same object Ai i All looking to the same lord for his gracious assistance. Having the same Faith and being baptised with the same baptism even those plunges into to Cicile and conduct which Wash us from Confidence in our own exertions How can it be otherwise than that we should rely As we have just hinted on the same lord ? May this Unity of Travail encourage us All to abide steadfast in our allegiance to him that in due season we May reap the unfading re Vaid of i holy peace. Having touched on some of the subjects which have warmed our hearts in desire that we be built up a spiritual House we entreat you to consider that it is by Means of a a div dual exe Lions under the direction of the omnipotent master builder that the work is to b6 effected to his Praise. Be vigilant the re cure we beseech i you be Consu uit when cases require a in faithful and tender admonition. Neglect in this Point give countenance to defects and incr a them whilst the faithful admonished Ray Hope to partake of the Reward of those who a a turn Many to righteous acis a , Saith the Prophet a a Bhail so Hine the stars forever and Ever Quot now dear friends in conclusion let us observe that love Christian Jove is the Parent of every virtue cities trails our personal indulgence it expands our hearts to every class of society and to every modification of the human pc us a it makes us prompt to lend a hand of help to such a May stay from the path of safety it leads to Universal Benevolence a and As it is the origin of to cry Good work so through the a race cart our lord and Saviour Jesus Christ it will be the Reward of a life passed in his a a civic in its licit ivc a Ion the realm of unmixed love with Lipini fur .
