[Benjamin Tolman]
I am satisfied that there is or was a feeling to down me as the apostles were told by some one presumeably officers high in the stake that I had worked against them & on one ocassion took a party (one of the boys that was cut from the Church) to administer to the sick. all the foundation there was for this report was that we went to administer to Sussannah [Hunsaker] and Peter [Hunsaker] was liveing in the same house but not in the same room and was present when we first knelt down and prayed, and he Peter asked god to heal his sister with out anyone asking him to commence or stop. I wish to say now that I have all along tried to serve God and keep his commandments, and wish all the time to honor gods servants but I have been made to feel my cut and it has been almost to[o] much at times ...
