[From North Carolina Letter Book. S. P. G.]
Mr. Earl to the Secretary (Ext)

No Carolina Edenton Apr. 12, 1763.

Revd Sir,

Since my last to you I have baptized in this Parish 37 white & 3 Negro Infants & administered the sacrament of the Lords Supper to 31 communicants. I have made 2 journeys to Berkeley & St Johns Parishes at the instance of the respective parishioners & Baptized 150 white & 8 black infants and 3 black adults, there are many sectaries interspersed in the several Parishes I visit, but are not so numerous as they have been some years ago; hope that by the blessing of God upon my endeavours, they will continue to decrease more & more & be at last brought into one fold.
