sumptuous, in words and deeds; We do humbly own that we
have been great Sinners for wch we desire to judge & abhor ors.

we have been really guilty therein, we do desire to give glory to
God by judging & condemning ors. for ye Same. We own
that the Lord might Justly have cast us into Hell for or Transgressions,
and desire to be thankfull to him for his great patience & tenderness towards us
we desire that ye Lords Long Sufferance & pity, may lead us to Repentance, yet
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.
