November 1, 1840 ~ Sunday NOV 1st Sunday. It seems to be a hard matter to esstablish the truth in the city of London there is so much agoing in the city to draw the attention of the people that it almost required a trump to be blown from heaven in order to awaken the attention of the people to the subject of the fulness of the gospel I freequently think o[f] Pauls perils in the city, their was a great differance between Paul who was without purse or scrip & the Pharasees who had thei[r] large reward for Divineing, so it is with us in trying to warn London without purse or scrip. Still we have to pay high for all we eat, drink, sleep, room, fire, candles, & a room to warn the people in &c. & we are out of money but still we feel to put our trust in God.
