Wishing you in the future (and also Mrs. and Miss
Baker) much of earth's happiness together with the
comforting and sustaining influence of the Holy Spirit
through all life's journey.
I remain dear Sir

Secd. by Mr. John Cook
"That the thanks of this meeting be tendered to the Rev. Thomas Baker (who has so long occupied an official position in this Society) for the valuable aid that he has rendered to this Branch: And we regret that he is about to leave the village, where he has so long laboured, in the cause of our blessed Redeemer."
"We pray that the change he contemplates making will contribute to the happiness of himself and family, and that the remainder of his days may be spent in one continued
strain of peace and happiness."
