Copy of a Letter fro the Right Honourable the Countess of Huntingdon, to
the Rev. Mr. John Marrant, Minister of the Gospel in the secreting connection,
dated South Wales, Oct. 25, 1786.
"I have received with great pleasure your two
letters; my ill state of suffering bad health prevents my writing so exactly
as I would desire to do, and begging our Lord's tender mercy to make me
the means of strengthening your hands in his work, and comforting your
heart, that you may abide faithful unto death. Many must be the
tribulations of the diligent in the Lord's service; but faith, true Gospel
faith, will cause us to ride out every storm, and sing our great and glorious
deliverer's praises for eternity. I have wrote to inquire after
that Mr. Brown you mention, and shall order tickers as you desire, and
only writ for you further wants, tickers to send what you want.
I think a faithful account of the spread of the Gospel in England and
Wales, would cause you and your society to rejoice in the Lord abundantly.
Remember me in Christian love to all who love the Lord Jesus; and believe
me your truly faithful friend, for his sake.
