ViBGiim, to wit. BE it known to all whom it may concern, that the teverend Lorenzo Do-a, who declares himself a native of Connecticut, one of the United States of America, has for two or three years past occasionally travelled through this commonwealth, as an itinerant Preacher .of the Gospel; that his appointments to preach have, according' to report, been attended by considerable numbers of the inhabitants of this state; that on all occasions his conduct has been inoffensive, and his manners impressive: it is believed that his views are confined to the promotion of human happiness, by diffusing, to the utmost of his abilities, a knowledge of the Christian Religion, and by a conviction, on his part, of its tendency to that desirable object. This certificate is granted to the said Reverend Iioremo Do-ji, at the request of his friends, in consequence of a meditated voyage to Europe for the restoration of his impaired health.
