To the Brethren & Sisters of the John St. church
Dearly Beloved,
I feel it to be my duty to make a communication
to you, acknowledging, where in I have sinned, and done wrong,
dishonored my savior, it brought a disgrace upon his
cause which I have professed to love for which I
am truly sorry and ask to be forgiven both by the church 
and its great Head.

To save my reputation as a weaver, I have taken the
ticket from cloth woven by another person and placed
it upon that done by myself, which was imperfect;
and put my ticket upon hers thereby practicing dishonesty,
and sinning against God and the church, and dishonoring
the christian name.

While I would make acknowledgment to the church and
ask to be forgiven, I would also ask to be remembered in
their prayers, that I may hereafter be kept from evil,
and the appearance of it, and live as becomeths a disciple
of a perfect Savior.
