FOREWORD 

In 1682 it was found necessary to divide the inhabited parts of 
the Province of South CaroHna into Counties, of which tnree were 
laid out, Berkeley, embracing Charleston, and the space around 
the capital, "extending from Sewee on the north to Stono Creek 
on the South ; beyond this to the North- ward was Craven County ; 
and to the Southward Colleton County, all extending within the 
land to a distance of thirty-five miles from the Sea-coast." (Rivers 
History of South Carolina, p. 134.) 

Shortly afterwards Carteret county was added to the number. 
"These counties were subdivided into squares of 12,000 acres each, 
for the several shares of the proprietors, land-graves, and cas- 
siques." Oldmixon in Carroll's vol. 2. Craven, formerly denomi- 
nated Clarendon county, embraced in its subsequent extensions 
a much larger territory than the other counties. From Berkeley 
on the south, it reached towards the Cape Fear on the north, 
and with North Carolina for one boundary on the north, and 
north-west, and the Santee and its branches on the other sides, 
it extended through a wide belt of country from the sea-coast to 
the mountains. ... It took its name from William, Earl 
of Craven, one of the first lord proprietors, and long retained 
it. ... This county embraced the region of the Pedee 
throughout its course, from the North Carolina line southward. 

The first parochial organization in Craven County was under 
an Act of Assembly of 1706, commonly called the Church Act, 
passed for the establishment of religious worship according to the 
Church of England, and for erecting churches. It divided the 
Province into ten parishes, of which Craven County constituted 
one, by the name of St. James Santee. — In 1721 the Parish of 
Prince George, Winyah, was established, — bounded on the S. W. 
by Santee River, on the N. E. by the Cape Fear River, on 
the East by the Ocean, and on the West "as far as it shall be in- 
habited by his Majesty's subjects. " "Statutes" vol. 3, p. 171. In 
1734, a further division took place; the Parish of Prince Frederick 



IV FOREWORD 

being established, and taken from that of Prince George, Winyah, 
embracing, according to the Act, the region of the Upper Pedee 
on the West. (Statutes, vol. 3, p. 374.) Dissatisfaction still 
continued to exist as to the dividing line between the two 
Parishes. It had been decided that the line was to extend due 
North over the Pedee River to the utmost bounds of the Province, 
it being provided "that the tract of land to the East of the said 
line, between that and the Sea, should be deemed as part of the 
Parish of Prince George, Winyah and on the other side of the 
line to the West, a part of the Parish of Prince Frederick. " The 
following letter of Colonel George Pawley brought the matter to 
the notice of Council: — 

July 7th 1739. 
Please your Honour. — I think it my duty to inform your Honour 
that tlie dividing line of Prince George and Prince Frederick's 
Parishes is not yet finished according to the additional Act made, 
which was to cross Pedee River, and continue a North course 
till it touch the Provincial line; which, if it is done, will, in my hum- 
ble opinion, break that small company as is of late erected on 
that Neck lying between Great Pedee and Little Pedee Rivers 
also it will cross some part of Queen sborough TowTiship which is a 
Parish of itself. Therefore if your Honour pleases to think on it, 
I doubt not but you will be of the opinion to have Great Pedee 
the boundary of the Parish upward from where the line is marked 
and strikes the said River; for as it now stands, there is a confusion 
among the Inhabitants, not knowing in what Parish they belong; 
also, the Surveyors know not how to certify their Plots some for 
one Parish and some for the other. There if the river be the 
Bounds the work is done, and no charge to the Publick; and that 
your Honour may have a better idea, I have drawn a small Draft 
of the Rivers in these Parts; so I beg your Honour will be so good 
as to forgive, if I have done amiss, for it is not my intent so to do, 
but the hearty desire for the good of the place. So beg leave to 
subscribe myself your Honour's most obedient, humble servant 
to command, "George Pawley. " 

To the Hon. Wm. Bull. (Council Journal, No. 7.) 



FOREWORD V 

Whereupon, it was "Ordered, that the Clerk do draw out two 
copies of Mr. George Pawley's letter, with the draft of the Rivers, 
one of them to be sent to the Parish of Prince Frederick's, the 
other to be sent to the Parish of Prince George to know whether 
they have any objection to make to the proposals contained in the 
said letter, for settling the Boundary of these Parishes, and to 
return an answer. " The matter having thus been referred to the 
inhabitants, action was taken by them; and on the 25th January 
1742, a Petition from sundry inhabitants of Prince George was 
laid before Council praying that the Great Pedee might be made 
the dividing line between the Parishes; .... This petition 
was signed by George Pawley, John Woodbury, David Cherrey 
and thirty-eight others. 

A counter petition was at the same time presented by John 
Avant, and nineteen others, inhabitants of Prince Frederick's 
praying the line should not be so run: 

"1st. Because the Inhabitants residing between the said 
rivers are twelve miles and upwards nearer co our Parish Church 
than to George-town. 

2nd. The major part of the above-said Inhabitants must go 
through our Parish and pass by our Church to pubHc worship, 
and other reUgious duties and other officers to George-town. : 

3rd. Because the said Inhabitants humbly pray to be included 
in the River. 

4th. Because the Town-ship of Queensborough is laid on both 
sides of the Pedee River; and 

5th. That whenever the Legislature shall to erect the Town- 
ship of Queensborough and Williamsburg into separate Parishes, 
this of Prince Frederick's being the oldest Parish (from which 
Prince George was divided,) will be confined to narrow limits, 
and consequently for ever remain one of the smallest, if not 
poorest, Parishes in the Province, if so valuable a branch as that 
of Pedee be taken from it." 

"We further presume to acquaint your Hon" that the North 
line appointed by Act of Assembly to be run from John Bogg'.s 
plantation, on Black River, was supposed and intended (by our 



VI FOREWORD 

Representatives) to make Pedee River at or below the plantation 
Euhaney, belonging to Mr. Percival Pawley, about 18 miles 
distant from said Bogg's plantation; but we now find that a North 
course excludes from this Parish sundry families residing on Pedee 
River, who constantly attend divine service in this Parish, being 
about twelve miles distant from our Church, and at least twenty- 
two miles from George-town. " 

("Council Journal," No. 8, pp. 454-5.) 

"We therefore pray your Hon"** 

to relieve the Inhabitants by ordering the dividing line to be run 
a straight course, which shall be done on our own proper Charges. " 
. . . . The Petitions were ordered to lie on the table. 

"Council Journal" No. 8, p. 455. 

These extracts from public documents will show how the two 
parishes bearing the names of Princes instead of Saints were 
established; in reading the records it almost seems as though 
their un-saintly names had influenced their early career; but 
what must strike this generation with wonder is the great im- 
portance they attached to their churchly duties, and the long 
journeys tliey made to attend Divine Service, even when minis- 
tered to by very earthly humans; their constant provision for the 
poor of the Parish must excite our admiration, in the midst of much 
which does not, to say the least. The present church of Prince 
Frederick is situated near the Great Pee Dee River, (which runs 
through North Carolina almost to the border of Virginia, under 
the name of Yadkin, and takes it rise in a spring at Blowing Rock.) 
There is a little wooden summer chapel in the village of Planters- 
ville, where service is held every Sunday. The parish was named 
after that Prince of Wales, Frederic, who the father of George III, 
and son of George II., was himself never King; it was after his 
daughter the Princess Augusta, that the town of Augusta, Georgia, 
was named. 

The first church building of this parish, as far as we know, was 
built on a high beauiifuUy situated bluff, overlooking the Black 
River, about twenty miles south-west of the present building. 
An expedition to the spot, to take some photographs of it was 
made late in March. Nothing could have been more beautiful and 



FOREWORD Vll 

peaceful that this God's Acre, lying high above the fast-flowing 
river, shaded by stately water-oaks, rejoicing in their glistening 
new foliage, and the white marble monuments, peeping through 
a tangle of wild azalea, dogwood, and honeysuckle, every open 
space covered with wild violets, purple and white, while the tiny 
perfect blossoms of the housetonia delighted the eye and spirit, 
for they are simply little wild for-get-me-nots. The photos 
were not very successful, but were the best that could be made in 
the deep shadows of the sacred spot. There is no fence or en- 
closure around the graveyard which must cover two acres of 
space, but there are private brick enclosures with locked gates, 
and the marble monuments within are well kept and cared for. 

It was in this higher region that the first settlers fixed their 
homes, for indigo grew wild around and that was their first farm- 
ing industry. Fortunes were made rapidly by its cultivation, 
and we are told that at one time it brought from four to five 
dollars a pound. In 1754 the amount of indigo shipped from 
South Carolina was 216,924 pounds (?). (Ramsay's History S. C, 
vol. II, p. 138.) Its cultivation ceased about the close of the 
century or soon after. It was then that the settlers moved away 
nearer to the coast and began the cultivation of Rice on the 
lower banks of the Pee Dee River and the church on the high 
bluff over-looking the short but very deep Black River, was left 
without a congregation. There is no record for many years, but 
"In 1827, Monday April 9th at the Universal Church on Pee Dee, 
(a church built by the neighbours of Pee Dee of all denominations 
as a place of worship for all denominations) to take into consider- 
ation the best means of erecting an Episcopal church, between 
Dr. WiUiam Allston's plantation and Black River Ferry. " (Ex- 
tract from the records of vestry of Prince Frederick Parish from 
April 1827, to March 29th, 1880.) Apparently the vestry could not 
agree on a suitable place for the Church, for though the money 
was raised and a building Committee appointed, nothing was done. 
The next record is date Jany 28th. 1855. The Rev' Hugh Fraser 
in the Chair. . . . The following persons were appointed a 
Building Committee, viz, D. M'^Dowell, R. F. Allston, and Francis 
Weston, with power to contract for and build a church of conven- 



Vlll FOREWORD 

lent dimensions on a bit of land given by the Rev^ Hugh Fraser. 
. . . The following gentlemen are requested to act as Vestry 
men — viz, 

Capt. John AUston, 

Dr \\:m AUston, 

Francis Weston, 

Benj. F. Dunkin, 
and Joel R. Poinsett 

As Wardens, 

R. F. W. Allston, 

D. M«. Dowell 

As delegates to the Convention, 

Rev''. M. H. Lance, 

B. F. Dunkin, 

J. R. Poinsett. 
The building was completed the ensuing Spring, and Service 
held in the Chapel. — The land liberally granted by the Rev^. 
Hugh Fraser, together wth a space of fifteen feet wide on his 
North line down to the River with Public Landing, was surveyed 
by R. F. W. Allston, the grant recorded, and the Chapel con- 
secrated by the Right ReV*, Nathaniel Bowen, D.D. who also 
preached. — Rev''. Hugh Fraser read the sentence of Consecration, 
& the ReV*. M. H. Lance read the Morning Prayer, the Rev**. P. 
Trapier Keith, and Rev''. Alex' Glennie were also present. . . ." 
The minutes of the Vestry meetings continue without anything 
of great interest, they purchased several hundred acres of Glebe, 
also erected a comfortable and commodious Winter parsonage, 
for the Rector of the Chapel, and also a very comfortable summer 
parsonage in the little pine-land settlement of Plantersville, and 
the Parish flourished but they seemed content with the wooden 
Chapel until the Easter Meeting of 1857, when we read, "The 
want of sufficient accommodation for the congregation was then 
di.scussed" and it was decided to erect a new edifice of brick, 
suitable for the present and future wants of the Parish." A list 
was opened and most liberal sums subscribed. The contract 
was given to Mr. Louis Barbot, Architect, and is a beautiful 
building, costing $12,650. . . . There were many delays; 
the Contractor Glenn died; the furnishings and finishings which 



FOREWORD IX 

were ordered abroad, were lost running the Blockade, the war 
having been declared before the building was quite finished, and 
it remained an unfinished ruin almost until 1876, when by the 
generosity of John Earl Allston of Brooklyn, N. Y., the building 
was repaired and completed. As soon as this was accomplished 
the wooden Church built in 1836 was moved to the summer settle- 
ment of Plantersville where it is still used for service every Sun- 
day by the faithful few, within reach, often literally a scriptural 
quorum. 

The writer first became interested in the publication of these 
records when it became necessary to repair the brick church which 
had been damaged by storms and was not thought safe, so that 
service had not been held there for a great many years. Being 
appointed on the Committee for raising funds for its repair, it 
was suggested that the publication of the Church Record by 
subscription, would be a means of adding to the fund; this idea 
was eagerly adopted and a long list of people whose family records 
were in the old manuscript, which was kept in a box in the Bank, 
being in a very frail and tattered condition, put their names down 
for a volume at five dollars. Then came the terrible European 
War, and no money was forthcoming, and the publication had to 
be given up. It was then that the National Society of the Colonial 
Dames of America came forward and through its "Committee 
for the Preservation of Existing Records, " with great generosity 
gave the whole amount needed for the publication of the old 
Register. To them our heart-felt thanks are offered. 

I would also desire to return thanks to M'' S. A. Graham of 
Heineman, S. C. who gave me a type-written copy of the Register, 
which he had made for his own use; also my warm thanks to M' D. 
E. Huger Smith, of Charleston, for his great assistance in verifying 
the copy with the original; also to D'. Joseph S. Ames, of Johns 
Hopkins University, for his most valuable aid in making the index, 
as well as for his advice, and support in the matter when I was 
cast down and discouraged, seeing no prospect of getting the 
money to accomplish the work in which I had become so deeply 
interested.

The State of the Parish was examin'd; and but one of the Church 
Wardens being present, the PubHc accounts could not be audited. 
On a Motion made, That this Parish is now without an Incum- 
bent, and no Minister resident near at hand, to perform Eccle- 
siastical Offices, it was moved, 

P* That Letters be wrote to the Lord Bishop of London, re- 
questing a Minister for this Parish 

2dly That Letters sh*^ be wrote to the Society for propagating 
the Gospel, to thank them for past favours, to excuse our long 
Silence, and to assign the Reasons tliat induced the late Vestry, 
to expel Mr Smith from this Cure. 

3dly That an ans'' be sent the Rev*^ Mr Alex' Garden, to his 
kind Letter to the late Vestry of March 4th last, and of thanks 
for his judicious Remarks and advices. 

To which Motions the Vestry agreed, & ordered the said Letters 
to be prepared, and to be read, considered off, and signed on next 
Sunday, the Heads of which Letters being drawn. 

Prince Frederick Parish Sunday May 2'^ 1756 

Divine Service ended, the Vestry Men & Church Wardens 
assembled to hear the Letters read, that they had order'd to be

Bpp. of London. 

Black River So Carohna 
May 1st 1756 
My Lord, 

We the Vestry-Men & Chh Wardens of the Parish of Prince 
Frederic in S° Carolina, beg leave to address Your Lordship, 
as our Diocesan & spiritual Father in Christ, to acquaint Your 
Lordship, That this our Parish is now vacant, & destitute of a 
Minister, thro the Resignation and dismission of The Rev*^ Mr 
Michel Smith from this Cure. A Gentleman who has not been 
long resident with Us, but who in that short Space has rendered 
himself quite infamous, & obnoxious to ev'ry Individual almost 
of this Country thro' his flagrant Manners, and bad Conduct: 
for in 3 Years (the Time he was here) he has done more Injury 
to the cause of Virtue, Religion, and the Church, than his Suc- 
cessors can repair in many; We therefore put our Selves under 



132 THE REGISTER BOOK FOR THE 

Your Lordship's paternal Care & Protection, desiring and hoping, 
that Your Lordship would be pleas'd to appoint some worthy 
good Clergyman to be our Pastor, whom We should be glad 
to see and receive as soon as possible. We hope that Your Lord- 
ship will not take it amiss in Us to observe, That this Parish is 
the largest, and most populous in this Province; Yet tho' numer- 
ous in Inhabitants We of the Church are widely scatter'd, and 
but few in number; The Parish oners being for the most part of 
the Communion of the Church of Scotland, and Settlers from 
thence and the North of Ireland; who have two Meetings, and 
large Congregations: so that this Parish above all other in this 
Province, merits Your Lordship's Care and thought; and requires 
a diligent, grave, & pious Minister to take Care of the Interests 
of the Church, which are hourly suffering, & will wholly sink 
if not timely and properly supported; for Mr Smith's bad & irre- 
Ugious Manners, has caus'd Numbers to join themselves to other 
Congregations or to turn their Backs on the Church, and Divine 
Service; chusing rather to stay away, than sit under the hearing 
of a profligate Teacher. Our Back Country is fill'd with Numbers 
who ne'er heard the Word of God preach 'd, or saw a Minister 
among them. Indeed Mr Smith did make a Tour into these 
remote Parts of the Parish, But He had better stay'd at home, 
for the Consequence has been, that thro' his indiscreet Carriage. 
(We sh*^ rather say immoral Conduct) among them, instead of 
bringing them over, and joining of them to the Communion of 
our Church, he has unhappily driven them to send for Anabap- 
tist Teachers from Philadelphia, who dip many, and form them 
into Congregations; so that the regaining of them, and making 
them Members of the Established Chh will (we judge) be attended 
with great Pains, if not an impossibility. 

A Gentleman of Gravity, Virtue, & Prudence, will not fail 
of reaping a plentiful Harvest here both in Spirituals and Tem- 
porals — We have a neat Parish Church, genteel Parsonage, Glebe, 
Cattle, and other Emoluments, for accomodation of what judi- 
cious Minister Your Lordship may send over; whose Salary will 
be One Hundred Pounds Sterling & upwards paid half yearly 
by the Public Treasurer, besides Perquisites, wc** may am* to 
as much, or more or less, according to his Conduct; A Minis- 
ter's Income here, depending much on his Carriage and Manners. 



PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WINYAW 133 

We shall only add, That the adjoining Parishes around Us, are 
also destitute of Ministers, so that there is not a Clergyman 
from Santee River to Cape Fear, to perform any Ecclesiastical 
Office, or administer the Sacraments on any Emergency: so that 
We hope Your Lordship will take the Premises into V religious 
Consideration, & grant our Request, who are with y*^ utmost 
Duty and Respect 

May it please Y"" Lordship 

Your Lordship's most dutiful 

and obed* Sons & hble Serv*"

The following is Copy of the Vestry's Letter to the Secretary 
of the Society for propogation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. 

Black-River S° Carolina 
May 1st 1756 
ReV^ Sir! 

The Augmentation lately made by the present Assembly of 
this Province, to the Salaries of our Parochial Clergy by increas- 
ing their Stipends from 70£ to 100£ Stg & upwards, p"" Ann; 
and thereby freeing the Society from a Burden they have long 
born in maintaining Missionaries among Us, will. We doubt not 
meet with the Societys Approbation On this Occasion Sir, We 
take the Liberty to return the Society our humble thanks for 
their Care of our Spiritual Concerns so many Years past; And 
this both on behalf of our Selves, as well as all other Inhabitants 
of this Parish Members of the Church of England, who w*'' grate- 
ful Hearts will ever retain a Due Sense of the The Societys many 
singular & repeated favours shown Us. The last Missionary 
they sent Us over, was The Rev'^ Michae' Smith — for whom We 
built a genteel House, and did ev'rything within our small Power 
to render his situation agreeable, and Residence easy among Us. 
He was rec'd here with great Alacrity — shown uncommon Marks 
of Respect; and reC^ many singular Tokens of favour and Regard, 



134 THE REGISTER BOOK FOR THE 

And as there are (nor have been for some Years) no resident Min- 
ister in two or three Parishes adjoining Us, He might have com- 
manded a very plentiful income, nay, aflSuent Fortune, (beyond 
any Country Clerg\TTian in this Province) had his Will been 
equal to his Power, and Virtue as shining as his Abihties, But 
unhappily for Him and for Us 'tis with great Concern We are 
obhged to say that this Gent""^ Manners have been so flagitious 
his Conduct so unhappy and imprudent, both in Spirituals and 
Temporals, as to subject Him to the Public Censure and Odium 
of this Whole Province, and thereby reducing Himself to the 
Necessity of resignmg this Mission, and leaving this Province, 
and thereby forcing Us on the disagreeable Measure of dismissing 
of Him from this Cure, to which He never was, or could hope to 
be elected, from having shewn himself more fit to pull down and 
destroy, then to build up the Church of Christ. 

Our long Silence may be interpreted remissness, or judg'd 
Ingratitude by the Society; but it has been owing to this Cause 
viz*. We were willing to pass over M"" Smith's Irregularities, 
and even (for a long while) winked at His Errors, and cover 'd 
his failings, in hope, that Time, Experience, and Admonition 
might reclaim Him, and all His Miscarriages be obliterated and 
forgot — being inclined from Charity and regard to his function 
to impute his faults, rather to Levity, Indiscretion, and Human 
Infirmity, than to a bad, or a corrupt Heart: We delayed there- 
fore laying Our Spiritual Concerns before the Society, till We 
saw the Effect of our friendly Counsels and forbearance, and 
M'hat We could consistent w*^^ Justice, Truth, & Our Duty, pro- 
nounce of this Genf" — Sorry are We to say, that so far from 
reforming of His Conduct, and suiting it to the Dignity of His 
Profession, and the Maxims of Right Reason (We might add, of 
Common Sense) That He seemed to run counter to both, tramp- 
ling on all Rules, and despising all Advice; He has oft left his 
flock without Notice, Necessity, or Our Consent; so that our 
Church has been frequently shut up, even for 3 Months to- 
gether, without his taking of the least thought or Care, ab* get- 
ting of it supply 'd in his Absence, And in one of His late Rambles 
into the North Province, He bro* home with Him a Woman, 
whom he lives with and calls his Wife; tho' in our strictest Ex- 



PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WINYAW 135 

amination of Him on this liead, he could produce no Witness or 
Vouchers of y^ Celebration of his Marriage with Her; so that We 
have cause to apprehend that if he is contracted, it must be agree- 
able to some assertions He has made in Public Company, viz* 
"That it was in his Power as a Priest, to marry himself to any 
Woman whatever, without the Intervention of a Third Person." 
Nor has He as yet realiz'd his Marriage, or given the Public any 
satisfaction in Relation to it, further, than by publishing the 
Bans of Marriage between Him, and this Woman one Sunday in 
the Church But as We are inform'd That Mr Smith has said, 
"That the Society shew so little Regard to what may be urged 
by the Laity ag^* any of their Missionaries, as to credit the Asser- 
tion of any single one of them, prior to the joint Testimony of 
any Body of People in America, We beg leave Sir further to 
declare, That we are Mr Smith's Friends, and Well-W^ishers ; 
and what We here say, arises not from Party Prejudice, or ill 
Will, but from a strict Regard to Truth, the Dictates of our 
Consciences, the Obligations of our Oaths and Office, and what 
is incumbent on Us as Men & Christians, and in Honour bound 
to the Society to declare, lest we suffer in our own Characters, — 
The Society in their annual Memorial, desire that they may 
be inform'd of whatever is remiss and scandalous in their i*v is- 
sionaries; And therefore We will make no Apology for these Dec- 
larations, or for what We apprehend to be just and right, further, 
than by for enclosing a few Papers to corroborate our Assertions, 
and to shew that the bad Character M"" Smith Sustains is founded 
on facts, and not wholly built on the Base of Common Fame,

the dismission of Mr Smith from this Cure; but the latter part

Mr Anth° White reported, that He had seen and spoken with 
Mr McCarty, who declared that Mr Smith had never paid Him 
for any Sashes, nor had he e'er received a farthing from Him on 
such ace* The Ch'' Wardens reported That they had waited on 
Mr Smith, and on sifting of Him, ab* Matters, had great Ground 
to conclude that there was some Collusion, or deception, for 
some iniquitous Scheme concerted between Mr Smith and Mr 
McCarty, 

A Letter from the ReV^ Mr Smith was presented to the Vestry, 
relating in loose & general Terms, y*" heads of accompts, between 
Him and Mr McCarty, w* giving no satisfaction, the Vestry 
waited on Mr Smith in a Body to enquire further Particulars, 

After a strict Scrutiny, they found the Chh Wardens sur- 
mises to be well founded, and that those accompts & rec*^ of Mr 
McCarty w^^'* Mr Smith produced, and asserted he had paid, were 
false, and fallacious; formed only to counterbalance otlier like 
fictitious acc*^ bro* by Mr Smith ag'^* McCarty in consequence 
of a Quarrel between them. Mr Smith hav^ also bro* a Bill of 19£ 
for Work done to the Stable &c. The same was deny'd Paym* 
He havs had 30£ given Him by y"" former Vestry (arising from 
Sale of the Materials of y"" Old Parsonage House) to discharge 
the said Bill. 



138 THE EEGISTER BOOK FOR THE 

The Vestry being informed That Mr Smith intended to send 
Mr Mac Cartys Bill & Rec* home to the Society and thereby to 
impose on their kindness, directed Mr Charles Woodmason to 
add a Postscript to their former Letters, to this Effect, which 
was done accordingly, 

Black River Ch'^ May 4th 1756 

Rev*^ Sir! Postscript. 

The Vestry having reed Letters from y^ Rev'^ Mr Smith 
affirming, "That he had been arrested by y^ Carpenter who Built 
"y^ Parsonage House, for the Sashes of the said House, and de- 
"siring reimbursement" they could not but be surpris'd at the 
Contents, as the s"^ Carpenter had been paid One Thousand 
Pounds of this Curc^ for building of y*' said House, Sashes, Closets, 
Beaufets, and all Conveniences included. They therefore sent 
to the said Carpenter, whose answer was, "That he had never 

"rec*' a penny from Mr Smith on any such acc*^" They 

therefore waited in a Body on Mr Smith to examine into y'' 
grounds of his Allegations; That he shewed a Bill and Rec* of 
this Maccarty's, the Carpenter, for these Sashes; But on Scrutiniz- 
ing into y® Validity of such Bill and Rec*, They found it a contrived 
Affair of this M'^Cartys to counterbalance a like fictitious ace* 
bro* by the s^ Mr Smith ag^* y'^ s*^ MacCarty, neither of w''*' ace*" 
had any foundation (as we could find) but only in Anger & Re- 
sentment; and to occasion quarrels and Contention. After 
expostulating with Mr Smith on his daring to endeavour to saddle 
y^ Parish w"' such an open & barefaced fraudulent Ace*, his reply 
was, "That He made himself very easy ab* the Matter, for if 
"We did not allow it Him, y'^ Society would, and that He should 
"send it home to them." To prevent therefore Sir, the Good- 
nature & Kindness of the Society's being imposed on in this 
Manner, (sh*^ Mr Smith attempt) We here declare, that he never 
paid such Money, That y'' s'* M'^Carty had been before paid for 
these Sashes, and why this M^Carty arrested Him We find on 
inquiring to be owing to this "that Mr Smith being impatient 
"to get into the New House, broke it open, before finished, and also 
"broke open a Room in w'=^ this M'^Carty had locked up these 
"Sashes." That after this act of Indiscretion, Mr Smith em- 
"ployed another Workman to put up these Sashes, and finish 



PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WIN YAW 139 

"the House, unknown to this M^'Carty, & the Vestry. "That this 
"M^Carty, & Mr Smith falling out on this Head, they reciprocally 
"arrested each other by Way of Insult, Mr Smith bringing a fal- 
"lacious ace* of Diet, lodging &c., agst M'^Carty, and y® other 
"opposing this trumped up ace* by another ace* of like nature, 
"in w=^ a Charge was made of these Sashes." But had Mr Smith 
really paid the Man for these Sashes, We should immediately 
have made Him repaid Mr Smith with Costs, and this We told 
Him. But Mr Smith not offering to make this appear (indeed 
it could not be) We judged it necessary to give the Society this 
information, to be on their guard ag^* any indirect Steps Mr Smith 
may take to impose on them. 

After which they directed the Church Wardens to write to Mr 
MacCarty, in these or like words. 

Sir 

The Vestry having this Day reed Letf from Mr Smith, with 
an ace* of Yours ag^* Him for the Sashes of the Parsonage House, 
they waited in a Body on Mr Smith to enquire into y*^ Grounds 
of such an extraordinary Charge: and on Examination find it 
to be only the Issue of a Quarrel between You, and that You had 
trumpted up a Charge of this Nature ag** Him to oppose a like 
fallacious ace* bro* by him ag^* You, in order to pay Him in his 
own Coin. However y^ Vestry could not but be amazed That You 
could take so extraordinary a Step as this; and while they were at the 
Parsonage House, took Notice, that there still remains sev' Matters 
unfinished, w<='' by your Contract You are bound to do; And there- 
fore They have enjoined Us to address You hereon, to desire You 
to repair to the Parsonage, and finish off whats remaining to

The Vestry then drew an Order on Mr W"* Wilson for £ 

Curr^ Parochial Money, in his hands, ordering the Same to be 

reC^ by and paid to the present Wardens 

Resolv'd, That Mr Josias Dupree be elected Parish Clerk of this 

Parish, and that the Chh W''"^ do acquaint Him thereof and 

request Him to accept of the Same: And that if Objections sh'^ 

be made by Him to the smallness of the Salary, The same to be 

augmented out of the Parochial Money 

The Chh W''"« then acquainted the Vestry, That 32 Acadian s 

were on their Passage for this Parish, here to be lodg'd, main- 

tain'd, & accomodated, till otherwise provided for. 

The Vestry came to a Conclusion, That the Chh Wardens lodge 

the said Acadians in the Parsonage House: But wav'd entering 

on the principal Subject Matter, viz* providing Victuals & Neces- 

sarys for their Reception. 

The Church Wardens insisted warmly to have this Point fully 

settled & determin'd — But the Vestry treated the Aifair so slightly 

as to tell the Chh Wardens, They might do the best they pleased 

in the Matter, and refus'd taking the least Charge or Care of the 

said Acadians; and proceeded in taking a View of the present 

ruinous State of the Parish Church; and then broke up, after 

naming Monday Three Weeks to meet again, to consult further 

about repairing of the Church. 

The under is the Letter wrote M"" Josias Dupree pr. the Chh 

Wardens, agreeable to the Vestrys Directions.

The present decay'd Condition of the Parish Church was taken 
into Consideration 

Resolv'd, That the Parish Church is in a very decay'd State & 
must of necessity be repair'd immediately, to prevent its falling. 
That the Parochial Money in Hands of the present Wardens 
together with what may arise from the present Years surplus 
be apply'd tow'^ the Repair. 

That the late Incumbent Mr Mich' Smith hav^ defrauded the 
Parish of Sixty six Pounds Currency, Parochial Money in his 
Hands that Ways and Means be fallen on for Recovery thereof. 
Order'd, That Col John White, and Mr Anth° White be a Commit- 
te for employing some Workman to take a Survey of the Build- 
mg, & to lay their Report before the next Vestry. 
That y^ s^ Committe draw up an Estimate of y** Charges & Cost 
requir'd to put y® Chh in tolerable Repair, & what materials will

be wanting as Sills, Shingles, Nails, Glass, Boards,Lime, Paint, &c. 
And that they contract with some reputable Workmen and pro- 
ceed in the Business, as far as the Parish Money will allow, & 
what Contributions they can collect. 

That information hav^ been rec"^ of some Movables of the Rev'^ 
Mich^ Smith's being in the hands of Mr W™ Green, the Chh 
Wardens do attach the same, according to Law provided the 
Expence be under the Value of the said Goods. And then the 
Vestry separated without doing further 

up, occasion 'd by the Absence & Negligence of their late 

, and want of the Parish Books & Papers. 

At a Vestry held in the Parish Chh of Black River, on 

The Rev'' Mr W'" Peasely appear 'd, and offered to serve this 
Cure till arrival of a Minister from England, 
But the said Gentlemen's Character being tainted; and Vestry 
of St Helena havg dismiss'd Him from that Parish for Irregu- 
larities, a Debate arose concerning the Admission of the said 
Gentleman, who produc'd the following Letter, of Recommen- 
dation from Capt Richardson one of the Representatives of this 
Parish in the General Assembly, [letter does not appear in Minutes] 

And then Mr Peasely laid before the Vestry by 

the ReV^ Richard Clarke, of Charlestown, to a gentleman of 
the Vestry of St Plelena, in answer to one which Mr Clarke had 
reC' from Him, subsequent to a Letf of Mr Clarke's to know 
the Imputations alledged ag^* Mr Peasely, and their Reasons 
for dismissing of Him, for Satisfaction of the Provincial Clergy 
of which the following is a Copy, [this letter also does not appear] 
And Col John White being going for Charlestown, was desir'd 
to wait on M"" Clarke, and to obtain from Him a Copy of the 
Letter he had rec^ from the Vestry of Port Royal, in ans'' to that 
wrote them by Him, in Name of the Clergy, But Col White did 
not produce any such Copy, only a short Note from Mr Clarke 
address'd to Himself wherein He says. That he apprehends that 
the Parish may admit Mr Peasely, on Probation provided he 
abides by his repeated Promises and Assurances of being a bet- 
ter Person for the future, or to this Purpose. 



PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WINYAW 145 

The Vestry not being conven'd hereon (Easter being near) M"^ 
Peasely Officiated at the Church by desire of two or three of 
the Vestry Men, against the Consent and Opinion of the Church 
Wardens, and some Members of the Vestry. 



March 1. The Church Wardens apprentic'd out Shadrack Mac- 
Cormack a Poor Boy abt 7 Years of Age, to John Simpson Cooper, 
on Jeffrey's Creek, till the s'' Boy came of Age. 



On Easter Monday April 11*'', 1757, the Vestry met, and pro- 
ceeded to Election of Church Officers for the present Year. 
The Church Wardens proceeded by Ballot, to take y^ Suffrages 
of the Parishioners : 

Four Persons that gave in Votes, viz* John Walker, Eben Dun- 
can, Ja^ Hepburn, and Alex"" Davidson, being objected too, as 
not conforming to the Chh of England, & qualified according 
to Law: 

It was put to the Vote of the Assembly then present, if the said 
Persons are legally qualify'd to Vote, 

And the Public Laws being produc'd and read: 
A Debate arose among the Parishioners, thereon. 
And the said Persons, tendering their Votes, & insisting on their 
Qualifications, as Freeholders, and hav^ serv'd Parochial Offices, 
the Church Wardens (to silence the Clamour) accepted of their 
Votes. 

But a Scrutiny being demanded, and an appeal to Higher Powers 
threatened, the Church Wardens would not reckon in the Votes 
of the Persons Objected too, but marked them off. 

And on casting up the legal Votes, they stood thus.

The present State of the Parish Chh was taken under Considera- 
tion and on a Survey of Repairs lately made and necessary to 
be executed It was Resolv'd 

That the Work lately done to the repairs of the Church being 
very imperfect, and insufficient; An Absolute Necessity arises, 
that the said Work be examinjed by some skilful Workmen, and 
be more substantially ececuted. 

That a Committe be appointed to Contract w*"" proper Work- 
men, for the finishing of the Church, and putting of it into good 
Repair, as far as the Parochial Money will go. And the Per- 
sons so Constituted, were, 

Mr Ja* Mcpherson and 

Mr James Lane 

Ordered, That They Shingle, Sash, Weather board, & put the 
Church into y* best Repair possible, as far as the Parochial Money 
now in Hands of the Ch'' wdn^'/will admit; and to the best of their 
judgment. Which Money amounts to 100 

And M'' Rob* Weaver having been apply'd too by the late Church 
Wardens, to Survey the Work done to the Church by order of 
the Committe appointed in Vestry y® 23^ Aug** last 
The following Ans'' was rec<^ from Him — 

To the Vestry and Church Wardens of Prince Frederic Parish, 
At the desire of James Crockat one of the Church Wardens, I 
have carefully examin'd the Repairs of Your Parish Church, 
and find them so insufficient, both with regard to the Workman- 
ship, and part of the Timber, that I think it will be a manifest 
Imposition on the Public if either the Workman is paid or the 
Church, cover'd up in its present Situation for I am clearly of 
Opinion should the Church be cover'd as it is now, it is in dan- 
ger of suffering by Hurricanes, or any violent Gusts of Winds 
from

At a Vestry held in the Parish Ghurch of P. Frederic on Wed- 
nesday the 18 May 1757 

The Want of a Worthy Minister for this Parish being very great, 
and no Ans'^ being rec^ either from the Bishop of London, or 
the Society, to the Letters wrote them, for a Successor to the 
Rev^ Mr Smith 

And it being reported, that the Rev*^ M"" Andrews had de- 
clin'd the Lectureship of St Philip's, and intended to embark 
for England by some safe Opportunity: 

And it being further hinted to some of the Vestry, that M"" An- 
drews's departure would not immediately take place: 
It was Resolved to address M'' Andrews to supply this vacant 
Parish during his Stay in Garolina, or to accept of the Gure of 
the Parish in Gase his Inclinations should induce Him wholly 
to settle in the Province. 

And the Register being order 'd to draw up a Letter, He immedi- 
ately withdrew, and presented the following, which being read, 
was approved off, and signed by the Gentlemen then present. 



150 THE REGISTER BOOK FOR THE 

Black River Church 18 May 1757 

Rev<i Sir. 
The Occasion of this address, arises from a Rumour which 
reach'd Us, Viz* That You are about resigning of the Lecture- 
ship of St Philip's and retiring from Charlestown, till some safe 
and favourable Opportunity presents to carry Your family to 
England. We should be pleased to find this Report verify'd 
shou'd its Issue terminate in Winyaii's being made Your Resi- 
dence. 

The amiableness of Your Character As a Minister and Christian 
strict Morals and Integrity of Manners in private Life as a Gen- 
tleman would alone excite in Us (and all here who Love Religion 
and Learning) such pleasing and agreeable Desires: But when 
We reflect on our late and present unhappy fate as to Spirituals, 
and the reduced State of the Church in this Quarter, these Wishes 
are higher rais'd, and prompt Us to perfect their Attainment. 

Permit Us then Sir to realize our Sentiments of You, by giv- 
ing You this Call and Invitation, That should You quit Charles- 
town, and Y'' Affairs incline You to a Country Retreat, That 
You'd be pleas'd to favour Us with Your Company and to ac- 
cept of this vacant Parish of Prince Frederic where We are ready 
to receive and establish You as our minister, whenever You please. 

For We have not a Clergyman within fifty miles to perform 
any Ecclesiastical Offices in any Emergency, and how long We 
may rest thus unprovided, is uncertain (We having not yet had 
any answer from home to our Letters wrote 15 Months ago for 
a Minister) but would rather chuse to remain thus destitute and 
unhappy, than accept of obnoxious Persons, who disgrace the 
sacred Character and bring Religion and the Church into Con- 
tempt. Wherefore after looking up to Heaven for Divine Aid, 
We turn our Eyes Sir on You, to heal the Wounds, the Stabs 
that Vertue and Goodness has sustained here within few Years. 
We want a Person of exemplary Life, prudent Conduct, and un- 
corrupt Morals, to apply the Balms of Example and Precept to 
pierc'd and broken Souls: to be an Ornament to Religion, Sup- 
port to our bleeding weaken'd Church and a Blessing to Civil 
Society: In this Light Sir We regard You from the Enconiums 
and Eccho's of the Public, and the testimonies of private friends. 



PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WIN YAW 151 

And should You Approve of this Invitation and obh'ge Us with 
Your Presence, and Ministry, We shall be careful to confirm 
the reality of these Conceptions, by striving to support You 
genteely, and to make Your Residence among us, as easy and 
agreeable as Possible. 

Our late incumbent acknowledg'd his Income to be near 1500£ 
pr Ann but We cannot Warrant his Assertions, nor enter into 
any Particular Engagements As this Parish is very extended, 
so also may be the Rectors Emoluments They partly depending 
on remote Persons and Accidents: For the Parish Church and 
Parsonage (which are both neat and pretty) being situated on 
the lower Verge of this Parish, will occasion require more Time 
and Travel for Minister and People to be thoroughly acquainted, 
than if built more Central. 

These our tenders of Respect, are accompanied with our best 
Wishes for Your Health, and that You may long live among us 
to adorn Religion, and build up Living Temples to the Glory 
of H I M, whose peculiar Servant You are, and whose Service 
is Your Honour and Delight We are with due Esteem

Gentlemen. 
Your Letter dated the 18 May, I rec^ this day, and am greatly 
obliged to You for Your kind Way of thinking concerning Me. 
The partiality of my friends hath given me a Character much 
beyond my deserts, 

There might be some Reason for the Report you Mention but 
that Reason is now superseded, since the Ships so long expected

are arrived; on board one of which I have taken my Passage? 
and shall certainly sail for England in about three Weeks time- 
If when I am there, I can be of any Service to You either by 
representing Your Case to the Society at home, or in any other 
Method that You may think off, You may lay Your Commands 
upon Me, and they shall be faithfully executed by 

Gentlemen 
To the Church Wardens Your most obliged humble Servant

And the underwritten (enclosing a Duplicate of ye former Vestrys 

Letter to the Bishop) was sent to M'' Andrews by the Register. 

Black River 28 June 1757 

Rev^ Sir 
The Distance at w'^*' sev' Members of our Vestry reside from 
the Church and each other, rendering it impossible for them to 
convene in Time to answer Your obliging fav' of the 14th inst, 
I take upon Me in Name of the Body to write You. 

"That they take extremely Kind Your offers of Assistance 
to procure them a Minister; which Xtian Task they entreat 
you to engage in immediately on Your Arrival in Engla"'^: What- 
ever Gentleman may come over with only 3 Lines from You, 
will be accepted here, as next to Choice of Y"" Self, they would 
approve of Your Choice" 

"That they need not trouble You with a Portrait of a Minis- 
ter that would suit here, as Your better Judgment and Experi- 
ence will paint the requisite Qualities, and their Sentiments may 
be gather'd from their late Letter to You. 

But if that You sh^ rather chuse to persue the Old Tracts (which 
as to this Parish have been very crooked) they enclose a Letter 
to his Lordship of London, which they beg Your Care off, (and 
sh** it suit, and be not too much Trouble) to deliver with y"" ov^ti 
hands. 

"And that You would be pleased to quicken his Lordships 
Motions in our favour, by remonstrating, 

"That our Parish Church, Parsonage & Glebe is daily falling 
to Ruin by being unoccupied. 



PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WINYAW 153 

"That there are now 4 Meeting Houses in this Parish, and 
two more talked of being built, {w^ Increase would not have been 
thro' Weakness, Supineness, & Immorality of our Incumbents) 
Whereas, had we Godly Ministers, Chapels of Ease would prob- 
ably be raised in their places, and less Room for the Sectaries 
to spread themselves. 

"That the People of the Lower Part of our Parish, are a sober, 
sensible & literate People, those of the upper Part, far other- 
wise; whose Numbers daily increase by Refugees from y° other 
Provinces 

"That if a Minister be not settled here soon, the defection from 
the Church will be so great, as hardly to leave enough Church 
Members to form a Congregation. 

"That Itinerant Teachers from the N° ard, are Yearly making 
of Converts that illiterate Persons set up for Pastors That the 
Presbyterian Missionaries from the Northern Colleges, use un- 
wearied pains & Diligence to extend their Influence & Interest, 
to the hazard of this whole Parish being soon entirely in their 
Hands. 

"That this Prospect grieves every true Son & Well-wisher 
to the Church of England, while our Establish'd Clergy calmly 
look on. But that our Assembly, Alarm'd at our Situation, has 
lately divided this extensive Parish, taking a New one out of it, 
to be called by the Name of St Mark alloting also 100£ stg, pr 
ann for an Itinerant Minister to officiate at the Waterees, & 
y Catawba Settlem* So that we want 3 INiinisters Sir at present, 
in this one Parish only. 

I conclude in their Names, to wish You a quick safe and pleas- 
ant Passage that You may find & enjoy the establish'd Health 
You seek after, and be blessed with all temporal and Eternal 
Happiness. I am for the Vestry and Church Wardens of the

May it please Your Lordship 

For the Spring of 1757 Wee Laid before y' Lord Ship the State 
of Religion & of the Church of England inn this Quarter, Together 
With our Want of a Minister. And Y'' Lord Ship from y"" paternal 
Care of this Distant Unknown Part of y"" Diocess, was pleased to 
Note our Representation's and Releive our Spiritual Necessities 
by Recommending this Cure to the Revern-i M-" Cooper: whome 
My Lord Wee have not the Happiness to Enjoy For on his Arival 
in this Province, Finding that the State of things in this Parish 
were now Greatly Different From What We Reported to y'' Lord- 
Ship. He therefore declin'd this Parish, And Accepted that of 
Prince William, Vacant by the Death of Mr Lewis, We Must own 
My Lord, that the temporal State of this Parish is now on a deffor'nt 
foot. And Greatly Reduced within these Three Years, and on 
these acc*^ 1^* Our Assembly Wisely Considring the Great Extent 
of the Parish and the heavy w^* on the Shoulders of the Incum- 
bent; have Erected the Upper Part into a Seperate Parish, Now 
known by the Name of S* Mark, who as yet are Unprovided with 
a Minisf. 

2d'y to Lessen the Duety of the Ministers of this and of Prince 
George Parish, the Assembly have appointed two Itiner'"* INIinistr" 
to Visit the Back Country. 3^'^ The Adjacent Parishe's of Prince 



160 THE REGISTER BOOK FOR THE 

George & S* James'^ have Since that thime Been Filled, Whereby 
the large Harvess of Fees be Report*^ by our Late Incumbent, Mr 
Smith is Curtailed So that at Present the Utmost Any Gen* Can 
hope to Raise here will not Amo* to More than one hundred & 
Eighty pounds pr annum. Our Chh & Parson'^ is in Good Order, 
But the Parochial Cattle & Other Effects are Dispersed, and Lost 
through Want of a Resident Minister to Look to them. From 
this Contraction of our Parish, which is Reduced to name Limits 
and from the Removal & Death's of Many of our Church Mem- 
ber's, Our Congregation Now Consists but of Very Few & Those 
Widely Scatter'd or Distant from the Church, 9 prctm of our 
Inhabitants being of of the Chh of Scotland. Yet, hope WeeThatif 
a Worthy Good Man Such another as Mr Cooper, who had the 
Good of Souls and the Chh at heart. Was Settld Among Us that 
our Congregation Would Annually Increase, and the Church of 
England recover from y" Languishing State it is Now Fallen into 
among Us. The Want of Such a Sensable Exemplary Paster here 
is possible by y'' Decay of Relig'on and Morals, and the Daily 
Poversion of Numbers of the Ignorant Commonalety from the 
Church by the Subtle Deceptions of Many itinerant Anabpt^ 
and other Teachers Sent in annually Progresses this way from 
Pennsylwaina, the Den of the American Hydra of Schism, and 
Enthusiasm Wee Supply our Selves with an Ejected Offici- 
ating Minisf whose Caracf has unhappily Sufferd throe the 
Noxious Blast of Calumny, but are fearful of giveing Offence to 
y"' r gid Presbyterians Around Us As they might make this a 
Plea for Continuance of a Seperation & to open wide y'' Rents of 
Religion the Shed'y of Every Good Man, to Close therefore we 
Chuse, to wave, our Private Concernes for the Create Good of the 
Church, & to Remain Sum time Longer Destitute of Spiritual 
Food, till Y"" Lord Ship be pleased be pleased to Appoint Som 
Pious Clergy Man to the perticular Charge of this parrish and to 
Limit him to this Cure only, that We be not Rejcted a Second 
Time for aA Richer parrish. 

Who Ever May be Appointed our paster may be Certain of an

P Frederick South Carolina Feb^ 25**^ 1762 

May it please Your Lordship 

V/e the Wardens and Vestry of the Parish Prince Frederick, in 
His Majestie's Province of S° Carolina, beg leave to Address 
Y' Lordship, upon an Occasion, the Natural importance of which, 
we Cordially hope, will be deemed our sufficient Appollogy. 

Vv'e have (it is true INIy Lord) Addressed Your very worthy 



PARISH PRINCE PREDERICK WINY AW 173 

Predecessor twice on the like Occasion, and can Boast the Singular 
Satisfaction to have found that our requests have not been un- 
roticed, from the Demission of two Gentlemen t - this Parish, 
Viz, The Rev'^ M'" Cooper, and the Rev'' Mr Dormer, (Our Present 
Resident Minister) We are extremely sorry to be thus importunate, 
but as the Rev*^ M'' Dormer has publickly Signified his intention 
of returning Home in June, July, or August next the farthest, 
our Church and Parish must of Course remain unsuppHed for a 
time, (those advantages only excepted which we may Occasionally 
reap from the Charitable dispositions of Neighbouring Clergy) 
who reside generally speaking at too wide a distance to Assist 
us often and as we are by no meanes Lukewarm Advocates for 
Xtianity and her perpetuity we therefore entertain the most san- 
guine hope that y"' Lordship will excuse us, when we address you 
thus Ardently Besides (My Lord) the remotest distance that we 
of this Province live at from y'' Protection and Care the Numbers 
of Different Sectaries that abound here; the Immediate ill Conse- 
quences resulting therefrom to the advantages of us, add to all 
which, The general prevalency of Presbyterianism in particular. 
These Circumstances Strongly call for our Assiduity our Impor- 
tunity and our most serious thoughts. 

But we further beg leave to subjoin, viz, that least your L** 
Ship Should Suspect, much less surmise, that any Difference what- 
ever can subsist between the Rev'' M'' Dormer & Ourselves, pre- 
viously to his intended Departure, we can assure y'' Lordship of 
the Contrary and as a proof have desired Mr Dormer to write 
in connexion with us, to which he has Readily assented, and 
enclose his Letter, with ours, unsealed. We have now My Lord, 
only to recapitulate in sanguine Terms (what has been already 
generally implied), that you will take our distressed situation under 
Cognizance, and as speedily as possible advert to our SoUicitations, 
by the Remission of a Minister to the future Cure of this Parish 
and that for our Sakes; for Mans Sake but Principally and 
Chiefly for his sake — who we are far from being Ignorant or in- 
sensibly of it, both lived & Dy'd for the Sake of Man. We beg 
leave to Subscribe ourselves, 

May it please your Lordship, 

Your very devoted Sons & Serv*^ in X*
