at the ???, but which is also a sort of rendezous
for the Blacks; their paths to Brisbane Town,
Eagle Farm, and ti the north and west, crossing
at this place. We were exceedingly pleased with
the spot, and unanimously thought it loss of
time ti look for another, especially as it appeared
to us a providential coincidence, that the Com-
mandant and Mr. Parker had both, without
previous conversation, each in his own mind,
fixed their eyes upon it, as most eligible for our
beginning. In the evening, we returned to Brisbane
Town, and on the day following we went
again to Eaglefarm, where we were accommo-
dated with a hut to sleep in and to contain our
beds; for five weeks we then slept at Eagle Farm
and went every morning to work. The
women remained at Brisbane Town, to which we
returned on saturday evenings. To give you
some idea of our work and lace, which we
named "Zion Hill", we have sent a plan of the
??? which we will assume ina few months.
We had to begin with clearing the ground and
were not in the way it by a servant, whom
Mr. Parker lent us fir the first and second day,
and now about fiur acres may be cleared. Our
next task was to split wood for slabs, cut the grass for
thatching, dig clay for plastering, till on the 28th
of May my hone was fit to be inhabited, which
up to this time contains the whole party, our
possessions and tools. Now and then we ???
???? in making the Blacks to work, especially
when there was a prospect of a good dinner
before them; after dinner it is no use asking
them to work. Wewere exceedingly glad to be
able to stop at the place, as much time was lost
in going to and fro; the brethren Olbrecht and
Nique continue also over the place on Sun-
day, ti mind our implements. We have also
???? and pigs, and one has been given to
??? Major Cotton. And here one cannot omit
to acknowledge the great kindness which was
shown to us by the officers of this place - the
Commandant; Mr. Spicer, the Superintendent of
Convicts; Mr. Ovens, the Commissary; Mr.
Petrie, the Superintendent of Public Works; and
Mr. Parker of Eagle Farm, every one in his
department; also the Rev. Mr. Handt did every
thing in his power to assist us.
On the first of June, Mrs Rode was delivered
of a boy under the kind assistance of Dr. Bellow,
and we are happy to state, that both the mother,
and child have continued healthy.
We canot conclude this report without ex-
pressing our heartfelt joy, not only at the arrival
of our brethern, also we welcome as additional
?????, but also, especially at the gratifying
??? they have conveyed to us; it is the Lord's
doing, and ???? in our eyes. We feel likewise
very thankful for the bountiful supply, which the
[Committee had ordered to be sent down to us,
and that our countrymen have so generously com-
???? in our support. At the same time, we
??? our persons and our work to their
???? prayer; and wish sincerely, that they may
???? be abundantly blessed in the exercise of
those duties, which out of love to Christ they
have taken upon themselves. Let every one of
???? each in his part - faithfully discharge his
duty, that under the blessing of God Almightly,
through our joint exertions, Christ's glory may be
extended and his kingdom established in this vast
continent, that finally the wilderness may shout
for joy, and the islands be glad in the Lord; yee

the Father of mercies, alone a blessing upon oour
labourers and successes in our work can be expected,
it was thought for that this blessing should not only be
implored daily, but also that especial times
be set apart for this purpose; hence besides the
sabbath service, a meeting for prayer was agrred
to be held the first Monday of the month.
On Thursday evening every week, a confer-
ence should be held, where the manner of our
pf our proceedings in particular should be treated, exist-
ing differences adjusted in brotherly love, and
hope to strengthen each other's hearts and hands
in this glorious work.
All these resolutions have been kept, and we
have felt the presence of God in our midst, we're
blessed in the out pouring of the spirit of sup-
???? and prayer, and mightily strengthened
?? ???? towards the mark. The brethren also
who recently arrived, declared their full concur-
rance with regard to these exercises, and we hope
and trust, that our increased number will bring
??? blessings upon us. As the Blacks
were attracted by our singing, we admitted
them to our worship; where they behave always with
the greatest silence and decency. As to diff-
erences, we are happy to state that nothing worth
naming has occuured.
The subject io study, then, was naturally also
contemplated, and it was agreed, that a thorough
knowledge of the English language was indispen-
sibly necessary; that every exertion should be made
towards acquiring it, and that throughout the week
nothing but English should be spoken. This
resolution was also kept tolerably ??? except on
some particular occasions; every day one hour
or more devoted to instructions in this lan
guage, which hitherto has been done in the
evening, but it is intended that it should be in
morning after breakfast, as soon as the present
pressing labour of buildings &cc, is completed.
The instruction of English by Mr E., will in
future also comprise a course of Geography and
writing of biblical themes; whilst Mr. schmidt
is expected to continue his logical course of
instruction in the German language. At first
??? this might appear to be unnecessary but
we daily find, that without correct knowledge
of the mother-tongue a foreign one cannot well
be spoken or learned correctly. Besides this
Mr. Schmidt has begun to read church-history
and a commentary on the bible with the brethern,
which for two or three hours a week will be con-
tinued.
Being aware that a great deal of manual labour
was to be done, which the present season of the
was permits us to perform at any time of
day, we considered the morning the best time for
study, and agreed upon the following order of
of the day; that the time in the morning before break-
fast, which takes place about eight o'clock, is
to be left to every individual's choice as to the
manner which he thinks proper to spend it
but that it was understood, it should be devoted
to provate devotion and study. The time after
breakfast and service, that is, the time from
about nine o'clock till sunset should be spent in
manual labour, two and two assisting each other
as it should be required in building, &cc,; the
time after tea until evening prayer should again
be left ti each individual to study. We appre-
hend, however, that in the hot season some alter-
ation in this order of the day will have to take
place viz., that the morning and evening will be
???? to manual labour, whilst the middle of the
day must be devoted to study.
On the 25th April we set out for Eagle
farm, the residence of Mr Parker, to view a ???
?? ???? this gentleman has directed our atten-
tion ??? suitabe place to settle in for the present
??? ??? from the fine settlement we knelt down near
the road, and for the first time in this bush lifted
our voices in prayer to the great Head of the
Church, asking guidance of His spirit on our
way, HIs direction in our choice, HIs blessing in
??? work and service, to which we afresh vowed
to give uo our lives and our all. Mr. Parker
then led us to a hill about two miles N.W. from
?????, at the other side of a big swamp,
where there is not only a fine rich soil, useful
timber, and a large sheet of beautiful fresh water
at the ???, but which is also
