<1840  Decr. 5th.> for Burslem. We found the brethren in Macclesfield in  good spirits, and in a good state to appearance; they appear  to be well suited with Revr James Galley; I think he will  be a useful man in this Kingdom. We found Bror.  in Burslem not in the best of health; he is like the rest of  us, the climate does not agree with him; he is affected with  a bleeding at the lungs. We staid with him in the Potteries;  I preached two evenings. The Church is in a good state;  some of them have a pretty hard time of it. will  stay there for the present. Saturday 28th., left for the next  stopping place in Grets Green, where we spent the Sabbath.  On Saturday evening we called to see Sister Roden, Father  Patrick’s daughter; she was very glad to see us, and wanted  we should stay all night. Her husband was very kind to  us and bid us welcome to his house at any time, or the Elders.  We could not stay; took tea with them, and agreed to send  Elder Lorenzo Snow there, if he could come, blest them,  and left them. I preached in the morning to the saints  in Grets Green, staid afternoon meeting, and then walked  to Birmingham: was very tired; heard Elder Snow preach—  he is a nice young man I think. also spoke  to the people after Bror. Snow had got through. We found  Bror. Robert Williams here; he opened the meeting; he seems  to be full of the Spirit. On Monday at 12 o’clock, and took the railway. Bror. Williams started  on foot for London. We arrived here on Monday evening  about 6 o’clock; found well and in good  spirits. We have been pretty busy since we have been here.
