CoxviLLE, Pitt County, N. C., |
June 12th, 1869.
Brother Bodenhamer :—I have
just returned home from my route of
appointments up the country. As
some of the brethren and sisters ex
pressed a desire to hear from me
after I got home, [ have concluded
to write you a few lines for publica*'
tion. I left home the 12th of May,
reached Kinston, Lenoir county, cn
the 18th ; got on the cars, and reach
ed High Point the 14th, where Elder
Burns met me and I went home with
him. The same day we started to
the place where the Mayo Associa
tion was to convene. Brother Davis
and his brother carried us to the As
sociation on the 15th, where we met
with many strange brethren—chough
strangers in the flesh, yet we were
not strangers in the Gospel of our
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, for
they preached Jesus Christ, the way,
the truth and the life, and all of
grace. So we had a good meeting,
and I believe the Lord was with us.
A.11 M'as peace so far as 1 know; all
soemed to enjoy themselves; each
one seeming to esteem others better
than themselves. They looked so to
me and 1 felt so, and we parted Avith
each other with a hope of n^eeting yi
a better Avorld ; so I. enjoyed myself.
We returned to the Railroad with the
brethren and friends; stayed with
Brother Burns part of 7’uesday night,
and then took the train to Haw
River, There I left the Railroad,
to travel through a strange country
Avhere I kucAV no person. You that
have travelled, ina}^ guess at some of
my feelings, but I met AVith very
kind brethren and friends, who treat
ed me better than I deserved. I met
the brethren, sistDrs and friends at
all my appointments, and tried to
preach the Gospel to them, although
sometimes I was in the dark, so that
’t seemed to mo that all I said Avas
to no purpose, and felt that I had
better been at home ; I felt so little j
and mean, and could see so much im
perfection in me, that I Avas not fit
for a ])rcachcr; and brethren, if I
am, surely one of the least. But
sometimes 1 felt the presence of the
good Lord Avith mo, enabling me to
apeak of his goodness, as I believe.
1 feel thankful to the brethren and
friends for their kindness in assisting
me along on my route. I got home
»afc and in good health, and found
iny family all well as couimon. I
can't teli hoAv thankful I Avas to God
for his mercy and goodness bestowed j
on us, poor offenders and disobedient
creatures as we are. So, brethren,
farewell; I never expect to see you
all again. May God bless you and
give you grace to serve him, and keep
you from going into error, but that
you may prove an honor to the cause
of God while you live, that when
you leave this Avorld you shall be
rest—for there remaineth a rest
the people of God.
Y’ouvs in hope of eternal life,
