John tells of sickness and great trouble, but expresses increased faith in God. He tells of riding to Dayton to overtake a company of soldiers which included relations (Robert Hough) and boys from the old neighborhood, which made his heart sick. He followed the group for 16 miles, then removed Robert and the boys from the camp, exhorting them to stay away from wicked company. The trial for the land lawsuit is set for August.
