Dear Friends

At a time when surrounded with difficulties and apparent impending dangers, I was so unguarded as to take the Test of Allegiance to the present authority, which has occasioned uneasiness to myself and been increased by finding that many of my valued Friends are grieved thereby, but I can asure them, I have not a wish to claim the least advantage therefrom, but am desirous to make void that Act as far as in my Power.

Also for want of stability in a trying moment, I was provoked to repel an assault made on one by a person to whom I was a stranger. This inconsiderate Act being contrary to my Christian Profession, gave me pain and concern immediately after the commission thereof, believing it is to be my Duty to endeavor a peaceable demeanor to all men. These mistakes procceeding not from judgement, but the immediate effects of my Temerety, I sincerely condemn,

hoping this acknowledgement may excite the charitable impressions of my Brethen.
I remain your affectionate Friend
Sam Garrigues Jr

To The Monthy Meeting of Friends of Philad'a
