Brother Joseph,
My great desire to be in your com pany & in the Assembly of the Saints where God opnes [opens] the  heavens & exhibits the treasures of eternity is the only  thing that has stimulated me for a number of days past  to leave my house; for be assured, dear brother, my bod ily affliction is severe; I have a violent <cough> more especially  nights, which deprives me of my appetite, & my strength  fails, & writing has a particular tendency to injure my  lungs while I am under the influence of such a cough  I therefore, with reluctance send your journal to you  untill my health improves
Yours in heart
P.S.
 Brother Joseph,
 pray for me, & ask the prayers of the class  on my account also. [p. 142]
