cutdono hia owl) anger. a'"' defeated the purposes
ofhtt wrath, by the inundation of his mercy ; for
this labor and sweat of our brows is to far from
being a cure,thal without it our very bread would
not bo so great a blessing, If'it wcro not for la
bor, men neither could eat eo much, nor relish" so
plearantly, nor sleep so soundly, nor bo so health
ful oi no useful, o strong, nor bo patient, eo noble,

liolden to labor for the .purchase of many good
things, so tho thipp itself owes to labor many de
grees of1 it worth ami value. And, therefore. I
neod noj reckon, that, besides these advantage,
the mercica of God have found out proper and
natural remedies for labor ; nights to euro the
sweat of theday sleep to easo our watchfulness ;
rest to tiilcvUte' our burdens and days of religion
to procure our rest : and thioga aro so ordered,
that labor it become a duty, and an act of many
tirtues, and is not so apt to turn into a sin as its
contrary ; and is therefore necessary, not only be
cause we need it fur making provisions for our life,
but even lo raise iho labor of our rest ; there being
no crcalcr tegiousncas of spirit in tho world than

Ubvh J iitKMis I will in few words n possible
give you int.-lligerice of my fute which is nn un
timely one. To-mnrry morning, before hunrise, I,
together with twenty-siAon of my companions nro
to bo shot, necording to orders given by a court
martial of .Mexican soldier, or nlficers, for an at
tack on this city on the night of the 15th Novem
ber last. I, for my part, am perfectly reconciled to
my fato. No use in giving particulars of Ihe bat
tie I arn pietly suru you must have heard thorn
before. I, at the time of tho eiieagcment, got a
wound in tho liu.nl with n ball, and another thro'
the ritfht hand. I hive been in thu hospital until
this Hfteriioon, fiom tho morning of tho battle,
No money can save us : even five thousand dollars
wa offered for any one individual. Thero was
likewiso offered one hundred thousand dnl!nrsa a
ransom: hut tho reason of tho refusal wne, that
they want to deter others from (he eauso of Liber
ty. Thi Is a regular mimnrre. We fchould havo
been treated n prisoners of war. I hope tho Amer
ican nation will revenge our live. I havo but a few
hoiirt to Hi e, on God blots you all.
I cannot write well excuse me.
