Litany from 1810 Ledger
"He who refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul. Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser. Love as brethren—bear ye one anothers burdens. Be at peace among yourselves shewing all meekness. As much as lieth in you live peaceably with all men. Study to be quiet and to do your own business Be not slothful in business If a man will not work neither should he eat.
If any provide not for those in his own house he hath denied the
faith and is worse than an infidel. Let everyone lay bye in store as God shall prosper him—let him be rich in good works—ready to distribunte—let him be an ex-ample in word in conversation in charity in spirit in faith in purity. Blessed are the pure in heart."
