Dear Friend
Thos. [Thomas?] Greer
I duly recd [received?] thine wrote a few miles from
Dublin on thy return home; which Letter was acceptable to me, & the
Expressions of thy kind Remembrance & imparting of Counsel was
pleasing & profitable. My Path seems rather a particular one, from
my outward Situation in Life; but I believe if I rightly keep my
Place, there is a power able to support & preserve. To that I wish
to look with attention, & then be my Service what it may, & little
or much I hope to be made partaker of true peace
This our annual Meeting has been large, & at times
eminently attended with Divine regard. We have had the Company of
many concerned friends from the various parts of this nation, & a
Collection of valuable Brethren & co from America those names thou
art doubtless already acquainted with, with John Woolman, whose
outward appearance is Singular but otherwise is a wise, sensible
Friend. I think it may be said, that the Truth is on its way, & in
the Lord's Time will be made to prosper in the Church & in the
world. A lively concern remaining for the restoring of the good old
way & the ancient Paths.
For further pariculars I refer thee to our frd [friend?]
Joseph Inman when you meet.

was, to present him with 20 - over and above the 200 to his Son,
therefore, if he be living, Cous. [Cousin?] John may pay it to his
Father, & draw upon me - I mention it so, because JT informed me his
Father was in a very poor State of Health I don't find much to
enlarge present, & indeed have had so much Company, that I want some
My wife joins me in dear Love, & to thy Family and I remain
Thy affectionte [affectionate?] frd [friend?]
John Eliot.
