Assemblies and conversions
Letter from Jacob Anthes to his parents, Martin and Catharine. He details his success converting several heads of local families, some of whom are identified by name, despite the efforts of a [Lutheran?] pastor to prevent their departure from their former beliefs. Anthes explains that he has fallen ill from the exertion of hosting repeated assemblies and that the snowy weather is preventing him from travelling to hold yet another assembly. Prior to signing off he notes that son Martin's arm was burned by a cup of hot tea and that Brother Umbach’s Märthe may be visiting in early March.
Handwritten German letter in black ink cursive.
