On board my boat near ALLAHABAD Dec. 5th 1837.

My dear & thankfully remembered friends –

I must say a few farewell words to you – your names are both written on our hearts – and I trust they are with our’s written in the .. book of life – You may probably have heard of my movements – I left MEERUT on the night of the 13th Novem(ber) and am thus far on my way to CALCUTTA & home – your last letter came as if a peculiar providence had orden(e)d it so! I was deliberating in prayer about my present step – when yours & other letters came in strongly advising it – Hitherto the Lord has prospered me and I see no cause for condemning myself in what I have done. I have certainly thrown up many apparent advantages in quitting my pleasant and active sphere of duty at MEERUT – When only 2 short years remained to my pension – But the Christian is called to enjoy & .. a liberty in respect of worldly things above the men of the world – The gracious hand thus placed me at MEERUT did so without any care or for thought of mine. And I am thankful to say I feel I can trust him for all future – He has taught me that blessed knowledge which is better than gold & silver. He has made me know thus to possess Christ is to possess all things – and I trust thus in thus leading me home he will by his good spirit make me & my dear partner to lay our plans for Heaven, & not for earth as we have done – In all our afflictions he has shewn himself gracious – he has not cast out our prayer nor turned his mercy from us – You will, dear friends, to the frequent subject of our conversation & to remembered with thankfulness in our prayers. I know we have a share in yours – It is a delightful & a glorious bond of union to Christ & his body – I left the Speedys & Blairs happily & comfortably united in this christian fellowship – they meet together every Wednesday ev(enin)g for social extempore prayer – I have had much comfort with them in this way – BLAIR has been brought on in spiritual experience to my great comfort – He prays with great fervency & humility – and I trust some other will be joined to them to strengthen their hands – But my mind is just now full of LUCNOW [Lucknow] – I crossed over from CAWNPORE [Kanpur] to stay a day or two with my friend PATON and it was a most gratifying visit – He is full of zeal in the work of preparing the rude native mind for the glad tidings of salvat(ion). He is searching the script(ures) & making valuable extracts from them to f.. for the NATIVES – In doing this his own mind is being much opened & exercised – The Divinity of our blessed Lord has just now opened more fully upon him - & his mind is pondering with gratitude & joy the sublime doctrine – That every blessing too comes to us only thro prayer – is another subject with he is much interested – he seems to have a simple in kind promise “Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer believing ye shall receive “ – Moreover he reads the scriptures himself & explains them to his servants – are not all these truly gratifying signs? And if you remember that he is apreciated with Dr. STEVENSON a p.. man & a man of prayer – with CO(LONE)L LOW whose wife is truly pious, and with the chaplain, Mr. DANSON, who preaches the gospel to them – considering these things does it not appear as if the Lord had a favor to that heathen city – from the center of w(hich) (the Residency) morning & ev(ening) prayer ascends to the .. Jehovah from hearts sanctified to his service? I think I see almost every day some rapid dawning of the MILLENNIUM. The gospel in INDIA no longer treads on its shifting sands – It has reached the high ground – It has entered upon a broad & steady course. The Lord is opening great doors & effectual for its advancement. He is raising up soldiers & civilians & help forward the great work by prayer & alms deeds. My heart is with INDIA. In her I was taught more perfectly the blessed gospel – in her I have made many friendships to be renewed in heaven. She has charms of grace & nature in my eyes w(hic)h I scarcely expect to find anywhere else in the same degree. I leave her with regret – I shall come back to her with pleasure – I shall pray for her whilst away – Now my dear friend, farewell. May the Lord himself comfort your hearts & strengthen your hands. May he abundantly bless you & support you in prayer & by his word.

Promote prayer meetings wherever you go – see how the Lord has blessed them to your comfort & joy. Now farewell – pray for me on the receipt of this – I need your prayers - & believe me to be dear friends in Christ your attached & affectionate brother in the faith

J. C. Proby
