Friend Joshua Brown Visits the Camp Creek Settlement, 1778

[“Biographical Sketches…Joshua Brown,” The Friend… 34 (1861): 301:]

On the 7th [of the 3rd month] he crossed the mountain, and, on the 8th, had a meeting near the house of John Douglass…. [Joshua Brown] was largely opened in testimony, yet the meeting was not much to his satisfaction. Riding forward, he, on the 10th, had a satisfactory meeting at Camp Creek, in which the necessity of reformation was pressed on his hearers. On the 11th, had a small meeting at Fish Creek, and, on the 13th, had one at Genito.
