tations ­-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
Whereas the widow Abigail Bourne, who has
been for many years a member of the Ch'h of Christ
in this place, has desired a dismission from us and
a recommendation to your holy communion, we do
dismiss and recommend her accordingly, as a per-
son, who, while with us, walked as far as we know
as becometh the professors of the Gospel and
we wish you to receive as such – asking
your prayers, we subscribe [?] you in the faith
and fellowship of the Gospel.

Gad Hitchcock, Pastor
in the name of the Ch'h.

The Rev'd Mr Barker
