consolations & support, being destitute of Christian society & fellowship &c. &c. You will find your present situation very trying on these accounts &c. but the Lord can & will make up to you for it and all other privations you may undergo for his cause sake. You are brought in providence to a place where your labours must be greatly wanted, & I trust it is not a trifle that will make you leave it.

I trust your little one is doing well. You will doubtless both find him a great comfort to you in your secluded situation.
