I have at different times taken occasion to express to thee my uneasiness with thy writings as containing sentiments not in unison with the doctrines of our early Friends; I have thought I perceived at least a tendency towards the same views in thy public preaching. My motive in writing now is, to desire thee calmly to consider what has been the effect of thy writings, and more particularly of thy present visit, on our Society in this country. Thou found us generally in unity. That unity, to a great extent has been broken; and I believe thy coming amongst us, under the accompany, circumstances, has been the principal cause, and the means of producing that extensive distress which, within the last three years, has overspread many parts of the this land. Some members appear to have been inclined embrace thy views; others consider them fraught with danger to the best interests of the Society; hence a conflict of feeling has occurred, which partiality, prejudice, misconception other causes have probably contributed to heighten. If thou hast been the occasion of this sorrowful state of things, might it not be best to leave us, that without any fresh cause of uneasiness administered, we may have leisure to feel after our situation, make explanations to each other, and endeavor to seek for the healing balm of Gilead. I would tenderly entreat thee to turn thy attention and humbly wait for the discoveries of that Light which makes manifest, that thus thy own state and condition may be discovered by thee, and through the mercy of a gracious God, the enemy in all his transformations may be detected and cast out, and thou, being brought rely on Him alone who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, may be brought into, and preserved in fellowship with his living members. If this should be thy happy experience, I believe secret and open acknowledgment will be called for from thee, because of the offence given to many little ones who believe in the Lord Jesus, not only as to his outward appearance, and all that he did and suffered for us in the flesh, but also as to his inward and spiritual appearance as the true Light which enlighteneth every man that cometh into the world, and the only principle of Divine Life to the soul.
