Revd Mr. Earl to the Secretary. [Extract]

No Carolina Edenton
27th March 1772.

Reverend Sir,

Since my letter to you of the 29th Sept last I have baptized in this parish 44 white and 6 Black Infants, and 4 Black Adults; and administered the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper to 37 communicants.

I visited Berkley Parish which is destitute of a Minister, and baptized there in four congregations 37 white Infants, and two black adults. I should have visited them again before this time had not sickness prevented me, of which I have not been clear these many months.

I am, yours &c.
