in sunder and to drench its smiling valleys with the blood of servile, internecine war ! O, MY SOUL, COME NOT THOU INTO THEIR SECRET ; UNTO THEIR ASSEMBLY, MINE HONOUR, BE NOT THOU UNITED !

A word of advice and I am done.

Be thankful, my brethren, that you have so little to complain of.

Instead of vituperating your rulers, pray for them.

Remember your subjection to Christ. Seek the grace and protection of the King of Zion. He will guide you with his counsel, and give liberally to those who ask Him, that celestial Wisdom which is pure and peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and of good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. You may safely trust in Him and in the word of His grace, to break every galling yoke, to undo the gorest burden that oppresses the heavy laden, and to give them the liberty wherewith Christ makes free, and to the weary that true rest which remaineth for the people of God.
