Epistles of Faith

Letter XXIV

William Huntington (1745-1813)


My Dear Pastor,

A WEEK having elapsed since the date of my last, without receiving an answer from you, I am necessitated to conclude you, at least, thinly me too far gone indeed; otherwise, I think you would have presented some foundation for hope, or administered some cordial or other to my distressed sin-sick soul. But, David. like, I look on the right hand, and on the left, but no man seems to know me. Therefore perish I must, unless the Lord, in mercy, put forth his hand, and snatch me from the pit, ere it shut it's mouth upon

Your lost, sinful Servant.

Sackville Street, Oct 8th, 1790.


William Huntington
