community now in this place informs me that they are  one and the same. I have received no reply to my letters  and attribute the delay to a press of business or professional  absence. I have come to the conclusion to join your  people immediately and take up my abode with you.
Let us adopt as our motto— Sicut patribus sit Deus  nobis— (As God was with our fathers, so may he be with  us)— and adopt the means to the end and the victory  is ours— The winged warrior of the air will not cease to be  our proud emblem of liberty, and the dogs of war will  be forever chained. I shall be with you in about two  weeks and shall devote my time and energies to the  advancement of the cause of truth and virtue and  the advocacy of the Holy religion which you have  so nobly defended, & so honorably sustained. My love  to all the bretheren. With sentiments of paternal regard
Yours, Respectfully
