Dear Sir
I have been requested to write you on behalf of the “Twelve”  who are just on the eve of their departure for England, and inform you, that  “this thing” which you have thought proper to write as a revelation to “The Church  in and the branches round about” to which you yourself ministered has  already “come to the knowledge of the Churches” both here and elsewhere, and lest  you should have any doubt concerning of the fact, we send you a copy of your reve lation to that church.
I am sir with all due respect— Yours truly.

In my own behalf I wish to state— that I sincerely wish, that it may  soon come to pass that you sir and all our friends at , may percieve  that you are walking “in the light of a fire & sparks that you have yourselves  kindled; and that you may turn round, and fear the Lord, Obey the voice  of his Servant and thereby escape the sentence “Ye shall lie down in sorrow.”
