Rebecca Budd Comly1818-10-23John ComlyTenth month 23d.--Our mutual friend, Eden Haydock, deceased about a week since. Dear cousin Mary, I feel much sympathy with her in her deep afflictions. I am glad to find thy health is improved, and thy spirits also. Those trying, proving seasons I trust are dispensed for thy further refinement, and to qualify for more extensive labour in thy Master's service. I desire thou mayst still be wholly given up and fully resigned to the requisitions of Divine Wisdom, and cheerfully do what thy hands find to do without anxiety about us. I acknowledge with thankfulness that we are favoured with health, and I believe we try to do as well as we can. Time passes more pleasantly than I had expected it could without thee, but the privation is sensibly felt. My endeavours are after resignation of mind; and though I am willing thou shouldst be industrious, and return to us as soon as thou canst with the reward of a peaceful mind, yet have thought whether two meetings a day will not be too laborious for thee.
