Monday June the 11th
O Lord have mercy upon us and
remember not our iniquities. But blot them out of
thy book of remembrance. Death verily in the Land
death is lurking in every corner. The Cholera is now
rapidly depopulating out land no human skill
can obviate its malicious touch. It is now rapidly
spreading desolation and misery where ever it goes.
No attempts can [?] its fatal ravages, the death
seeking monster comes off conqueror. Lord have
mercy upon us and stay thy mighty vengence
Lord restrain thy wrath and reward us not according
to our iniquities. But for Christ's sake have mercy.
Having heard a few minutes since of its rapid
increase in my cear native county dear old Gloucester.
It is only three miles from my Father's residence.
I can only trust in the Lord. If it is thy will
to afflict us, give us resignation to thy most
holy love; Prepare us all for deaths end judgment
Sanctify the hearts of every one and let us all
through adversity or prosperity put outrwhole trust
and confidence in thy mercy. For with thee
nothing is impossilble and with man all
