to recover. The constancy of these people, under their sufferings, may overcome their enemies, and cantribute greatly to the spread of the gospel in these parts. The Rev. Mr. Kohloff is willing to go into the harvest, and be for some time among them; and a very fit person he is for such a work. It requires great humility and discretion, and a mind that, by grace, has learned to be content, for the fake of Christ, with many things which are not pleasant. Yours, &c.

Having examined Mr. Wood, the Council, satisfied with his qualifications,

Voted to ordain him to-morrow, at 3 o'clock, P. M. to the work and office of an Evangelist and Minister of Jesus.

Voted, That the solemnities of his ordination be introduced with prayer by Mr. Grout—that Mr. Emerson preach the sermon, Mr. Forward make the consecrating prayer, Doct. Hopkins give the charge, Mr. Hayes give the right hand of ministerial fellowship— and Mr. Wells make the concluding prayer.
