Arose & found my beast still worse. ... I tarried to attend to Jude my sick beast but in a few hours she fell to the Earth & struggled for about an hour uncommon for Beast & Died. I opened her & became convinced for myself it was Poison. Thus ended the life of Jude a beast who had carried me thousands of miles to Preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Also hath carried other Elders many miles on the same errand. I am now left on foot. May I be reconciled to all the Providences of God While I tabernacle in the flesh.
