of God what Ever is is Right in fiveteen months I have been bereved of four Near & Dear Relations, in a few Days after I wrote my Last to you it Pleased God to Call my Husband out of this Troblesom world where he had Injoyed Litle & suffered much by Sin & Sorrow. He is Gone to a world of Spirits from whence none has Ever Returned to give us an acount of what is there transacted, but it has Pleased God to favour us with a Revealation in which we are asured the Godly shall Injoy a Perfect Happyness in His Presence for Ever,
Mr Cooper the first sabath I went to meeting after a Long confinement with my sick family comforted me with a Sermon from the fourth chapr of 2d of Corenthans 17 vs for our Light Afflictions which is but for a moment worketh for us a far more Exeding and Eternal weight of Glory. He shew in How many Respects Afflictions workd thus to a belever, & only to them; for to the wicked worldly sorrow worked Death, & that it was Pall that could say this that had meet with such a Large Portion of affliction Ever since He had Profesed Christ. to me the Sermon was a master Peec of the kind & several others I heard Speak of it were of my mind, but I am not Good at Repeeting or Remembring tho I hope I Retain so much of the Sence as in some measure to Enable me with the asistance of Gods Spirit to Influenc my conduct Hear in this world & throw the merits of Christ Give me Hopes of a Gloryous Eternity.
