Brethren Archive Exploring the history of some of those known as "Plymouth Brethren", and a few other things.

American Darby Letterbook - Page: 5


Transcript:


clergymen, who were on the move, have come out, & they are down here, & from all I have seen of them are beloved brethren. Their letter to their Bishop was very nice. We read with some other brethren every morning. They are, I trust, real & earnest in their desire to labor for the Lord (it seems others are exercised, what that will lead to I cannot tell but thus far the movement has been most happy). They are quiet unassuming men, one married with a baby, the other not. The married one has taken a house here hoping he may have some boys to help support himself though anxious not to put himself out from working. Would you kindly let Wm. Dorman know I have called on & seen his uncle Dr. Robinson a kind Wesleyian Christian. Kindest love to the Brethren, I am most thankful for their prayers, I trust they will still remember me. We have very fine weather, wet today but not before. Kindest love to your own circle & all around you. J.N.D.

Dearest Owen, 

I had been praying as to this matter in East Street having briefly heard of the act of these leaders, one or two of whom, I believe, are misled.

The start of the letter that Greg has helpfully transcribed and pointed is quite similar to that in Vol.1 p.334 (Stow Hill) or p.406 (Morrish).
