My Dear Sir
I ought long ago to
have written to thank
you for the letter you were
so good as to write to me
shortly after Easter.
I have deferred it week
after week in the vain
hope that I should [-----?]
have something to tell
you that was decisive
or would be satisfactory
but the time never came
This encouragement was
all along held out to
buoy up the hopes of the
Sanguine I dare not write
to say more than this but
was kept expecting always
in a few days to tell you
more. At length the
matter is come to a crisis
& we learn today that
they will not do anything
not daring to resist &
disregard the hostility
of those who here profess to
represent the Synod of
Ulster. Dr. S. & W.M.
We have seen P. today
& ascertained this.
I write in haste at last to
save post that you may
know from me our actual
position. Do not however
speak of it to any one
on the authority of what
I say to you. Let this
be considered confidential.
I understand [Dr?] M. will
remain here exerting
himself to the last so
nothing should be said
but on the authority of
what he communicates.
We must try again next
Session. Yrs truly
My respects to
Mrs. Allen
