Beloved brethren and  Sisters in the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ  I beseach you in the bowels of mercy to rememb[er]  the exhortation that I gave you when I was yet  present with you— to beware of delusive Spirits  I rejoice that our heavenly Father hath blessed  you greatly as he has also me in enabling me  to speak the praises of God and the mysteries of  the Kingdom in other tong[u]es according to promis[e]  and this without throwing me down or wallowing  me on the ground or any thing unbecoming or  immoral also without any external operation  of the system but it is the internal operation [p. 26]

Beloved brethren and Sisters in the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ I beseach you in the bowels of mercy to remember the exhortation that I gave you when I was yet present with you— to beware of delusive Spirits I rejoice that our heavenly Father hath blessed you greatly as he has also me in enabling me to speak the praises of God and the mysteries of the Kingdom in other tongues according to promise and this without throwing me down or wallowing me on the ground or any thing unbecoming or immoral also without any external operation of the system but it is the internal operation [p. 26]
