My Dear Mr Gage
It affords me very sincere pleasure to have been the medium thro' [through?]
which so much money has been collected here for our poor countrymen, and so
many seasonable grants of assistance sent to them. My congregation, and other
friends [have been?] very liberal indeed and I feel truly thankful for the
[testimony borne?] by many letters such as your's to the usefulness and
[acceptableness?] of this Country.

Our Secretary read your letter to him, in our committee, so that it was not
necessary for [me?] to produce your private letter to [myself?].

Hope Wm [William?] [?] & all your [family?] at home are well, and that you
[continue?] to receive comfortable tidings from London
I am [yours?] very [sincerely?]
Hugh McNeile [McNeale?]
Rev R [Robert?] Gage
