Journal Entry

September 10, 1837 ~ Sunday

10th Sunday we met a large congregation at Brother Justus Eames at 10 AM
I preached to this attentive people assembled together from the
different Islands of the sea, from Math 16 ch 17: 18 v. After meeting
I opened a door for baptism, when another sea captain offered
himself as a candidate, by the name of Ebenezar Eames. he was
brother to Capt Justus Eames that we Baptized the Sabbath before. A
young Lady also offered herself for Baptism. I lead them down into the
water & Baptized them. I truly felt to rejoice to behold the mighty
captains of the sea enter the new & everlasting covenant. The spirit
of God
rested upon me. I addressed the people that stood upon the
shore, many were cut to the heart. Spent the night at Capt Eames.

& seventies, esspecially, Kimble, Hide, Goodson & others in England. Of Page & Blakesley on Canida & many others we thought and spake of. While filled with these meditations, & the Promises of GOD, we fell upon our knees and thanked the God of heaven, & Prayed for all Israel, not forgetting the Church of Latter Day Saints, head nor foot. We plead with God for Joseph, & for all the Elders and members, esspecially our wives. Our souls rejoiced, & we went our way with glad hearts. Will not the rememberance of these things, remain forever, esspecially untill our heads are silver'd o'er with age. Tell it unto your childrens children.
