As I had said often to thee, give up to be crossed; that is the way to please the Lord, and to
follow him in his own will and way, whose way is the best. Let nothing enther thy mind
concerning anything about me, for I am very well contented in the work of the Lord. I know your
care and tenderness were not wanting to Friends: and so be all satisfied in the will of the Lord. I
hope in the Lord you are all together,, ere this come to you. Be all satisfied and content with the
will of the Lord; and let neither murmuring nor repining enter any of your minds; and let not
sorrow fill your hearts, for we have all cause to rejoice in the Lord evermore, and I most of all.
