O Reader! to serious consideration upon the value of thy Soul -- with the shortness and uncertainty of Time --and the duty you owe to God with the awful consequence of living and dying in Sin!

II. Remember that by Nature you are in a fallen degenerate state__therefore, ye must be REGENERATED & "BORN OF THE SPIRIT' --"For without holiness, no man shall see the LORD!" Hence be prevailed upon to take thy ETERNITY into the account -- with the consequences annexed to Vice and Virtue -- and PREPARE TO [hole in paper, missing word] THY GOD!!!

Avoiding all known sin, with unnecessary wicked company --and never lay down to rest without committing yourself into the protection of kind Providence -- and when you awake, give thanks -- Thus begin, spend and close every day with GOD -- having your mind staid upon HIM -- and your heart drawn out after HIM in a praying frame --Living to-day as you would wish to die, and be willing to account to GOD in CHRIST JESUS --that you may be happy here, and hereafter, in HIS KINGDOM!!

LORENZO DOW. November 2, 1815.
