Letter from Mr Earl to the Secretary

Edenton 12th October 1766

Reverend Sir

Since my letter to you of 26th March last I have baptized in this parish 32 Infants and 2 Adults and administered the Sacrament of the Lords Supper to 24 Communicants I likewise preached to two congregations in Berkley Parrish where the People are destitute of a minister and baptized 26 Infants and 3 Adults. I Intended to have taken another Journey to that parish before this time but have been prevented by sickness which confined me to my Bed for five weeks and through the means of which I am at present so weak and reduced that I can but scarcely walk.
