    more & more.          We pray all Gods people to forgive us; we are Sorry

    for whatever we have offended them, and dishonoured God & his holy

    Religion by, whether in words or Deeds; or any omissions of holy and

    religious duties. and we Intreat Gods people to pray to ye Lord for us

    that we may obtaine his forgiveness, and that we may be accepted of

    God and his people (thõ unworthy) and be enabled to walk before him

    and amongst his people, as becomes ye Gospel of Christ, all ye dayes of our

    life,for ye future which we heartily desire to do.  Samll Prime. Sarah Prime.
