Patriarchal Blessing of Thomas Cottam ... Thou art called to preach the Gospel to nations in a far off- and to many upon the Isles of the Sea, they shall believe your voice, the wise and learned, the great and shall, you shall baptise and lead them to Zion wit much of the Riches of the Earth, you shall [have] power over the waves of the sea to command them and they shall be still- do any miracle that will forward thy work- ... You shall have the minist[e]ring of angels to rejoice your heart, live to see the winding up scene of this generation and become acquainted with all the mysteries of the Redeemer[']s Kingdom Inherit all the blessings of the same with all your Father[']s House. Amen.

[Patriarchal Blessings]
