Having carried the history of my life, as well  as that of my family, as far as I intend to do  for the present, I shall leave the world to judge  concerning what I have written as seemeth them  good. But this much I will say, that the  testimony which I have given, is true; and will  stand forever. And the same will be my tes timony in the day of God Almighty; when  I shall meet them, concerning whom I have testified,  before angles and <the> spirits of the just made perfect;  before Arch-angles and Seraphims; Cherubims and  Gods; where the brief authority of the— unjust man  will shrink to nothingness before him, who is the  Lords of Lords, and God of Gods; and where the  righteousness of the just shall exalt them in the  scale, wherein he weigheth the hearts of men.
And having, in common with the Saints, app ealed in vain for justice to ,  , , and , I now bid them a last farewell until I  shall appear with them before him, who is the judge  of both the Quick and dead; and to whom I  now do solemnly appeal in the name of Jesus  Christ: Amen. [p. 316]
