Verily thus saith the Lord unto my servants &  let them settle up their businss speedily & Journy from the Land of  before me I the Lord sendeth snow again upon the ground, Let them awake  & arise & come forth & not tarry for I the Lord commandeth it. Therefor  if they tarry it shall not be well with them.
Let them repent of all their sins & of all their covetous desires before  me saith the Lord, For what is property unto me Saith the Lord.  Let the properties of be turned out for debts debt saith the Lord.  Let them go saith the Lord & whatsoever remaineth let it remain  in your hands saith the Lord.

Therefore will I not make the solitary  places to bud & to blossom & to bring forth in abundance saith the Lord.  Is there not room enough upon the mountains of  & upon the plains of Obashinihah or or in the Land of  where Adam dwelt that you should not covet that which is but  the drop & neglect the more weighty matters— Therefore come up  hither unto the Land of my people even — Let my servt. be faithful over a few things & he shall be ruler of over many  things— Let him preside in the midst of my (blank or omited) in the city   & let him be blessed with the blessings of my people  Let my Servt. be ashamed of the Nicholatins & of all their  secret abominations & of all his littleness of soul before me saith  the Lord & come up unto the Land of & be a  unto my people saith the Lord, Not in name Name but in deed saith  the Lord— And again verily I say unto you I remember  my servt, behold verily I say unto him that his  name shall be had in sacred remembrence from generation to generation  for ever & ever saith the Lord. Therefore let him Contend earnestly  for the redemption of the of my saith the Lord (over) [p. [1]]
