Mr Earl to the Secretary. Extract

Reverend Sir,

Since my letter to you of the 20tl October I have baptized in this Parish 38 White Infants and 1 Adult, and administered the sacrament of the Lords Supper to 30 communicants—I have made three journies to Berkly Parish, and preached to four large congregations there, and baptized 60 Infants and 3 Adults—I should be glad the Society should be pleased to send me some Tracts that may

be effectual for the confutation of dissenters and Sceptics in general as that Parish abounds with such, especially those of the Quaker and Anabaptist kind; and some proper kinds of tracts distributed among the Parishioners would I hope be very prevalent for Exploding their Heterodox and Sceptical Tenets as their prejudices dont permit them to come to hear sermons preached by any orthodox minister.

I am &c
D. E.
