George Fox (1624-1691)

Epistle 189
1659

"The Preciousness and Weight of Truth"

(To Friends in New-England and Virginia)

MY Dear Friends, Robert Hodson, William Robinson (1), Marmaduke Stevenson (1), Peter Pearson, William Brend, William Ledra (1), and the rest of Friends in New-England and Virginia, Be faithful to the Lord in the Truth of the Lord God, and in his Power and Wisdom be valiant for it upon the Earth, and spread it abroad, and confound Deceit: And dwell in the Power of God, and stand in it, which comprehends the whole World: that through it ye may answer the Witness of God in every one, and be a Dread to Nations. And go on in Peace and Love and Unity one with another, and keep in the Wisdom of the Lord God, that ye may be answerable to the Witness in every one, to whom ye preach. And take heed of Judging one another in the Sight of weak Friends, but dwell in the Power of the Lord God, and that will keep that down in every particular, which is to be judged. . . . Therefore dwell all (I warn you from the Lord God of Power, of Life, of Heaven and Earth), dwell in his Power and Wisdom and Life, . . . . through which ye will feel the Preciousness and Weight of Truth, which now is going over all the World.

(1) Martyred at Boston, 1659-1661.
