Description

This is a letter of confession for Dolly Fisher written for her by her husband Rev. Jonathan Fisher.

It begins, "I, the Subscriber, acknowledge that at a Church fast a few months since, being questioned respecting an affair relating to the pouring out of some cherry rum, and intending to convey the idea, that Mr. Fisher did not compel me to do it, unintentionally conveys the idea that Mr. Fisher did not do it himself.

" I confess that I have reason to regret that from this misunderstanding reports unfavorable to the cause of religion have been put in circulation.

"I ask forgiveness of all to whom I may have given occasion of offense, and pray that I may be more circumspect in the manner of speaking in time to come."

It is signed by Dolly Fisher, and dated March 26 1830, Bluehill.
