Omnipotence, out of His great goodness and peculiar distinction towards you, desires me to inform you, that now, it's His wish, that the first Acts of His Reign on Earth, shall emanate from you; and that you are to enact Laws founded upon the pure and sacred principles of Truth & Justice. Reason & Religion, Peace & Harmony and Love & Unity. which no doubt, will be crowned by Faith and Power and Glory.

Inclosed are documents respecting this business, agreeable to the list stated. I am Gentlemen, your friend & servant Pherson son of Christ alias Fierce son of Christ A
