DCCCXIX. — To the Same.

Dear Adam,Bristol, March 9, 1789.

If I should live to see you another Conference, I should be glad to have sister Clarke and you here, rather than at most other places; because I spend more time here myself, than at any other place, except London. I am glad to hear that God has raised up so able a Preacher from the islands; but certainly you should spare no pains in teaching him to read and write English. And I do not doubt but if he learned with a single eye, he would be largely strengthened by the blessing of God.

It would be a reason for being, very wary in choosing names for our children, if that old remark were true: —

That our first tempers from example flow,

And borrow that example from our names.

Peace be with you and yours!

I am, dear Adam,

Your affectionate friend and brother.
