Abstract

Two copies, dated September 1876, of a letter dated October 15, 1670 (October 5, 1670 1670 Old Style) from John Abraham to Phineas Pemberton regarding his attempts to secure Pemberton's liberty from jail. The magistrates told him they would send for Pemberton to attend the quarter sessions, but he has not heard anything else about it since. He offers Pemberton reassuring words on the necessity of God’s judgement. He also comments on his slow recovery from a recent illness.
