We sing And Pray And I teach them the things of the kingdom of God And I break bread And partake of the sacrament with them. My ownly son living was baptized when he was Eight years old. He is now most nine year of Age He is A good youth And seems to be under the influence of the spirit of the Lord He obeys his Parents in all things I ordained him this day to the office of A Priest to officiate in that office in his Fathers houshold untill He shall Arive At A suitable Age to officiate in the Church. When I Am abroad away from my family Attending to the Affairs of the Church Phebe W.
