The time has now undoubtedly come for us to leave here, nevertheless we must proceed in a proper manner or nothing is gained. Again shall the 12 apostles of the Lambe be a disorganized body pulling different ways, shall one to his plough another to his merchandise, another to England & No! I even I will step in (if there is none other for it is my right in this case) And give council to you upon this subject.
