Another day will probably show us the long looked for land of Obookiah, where the ignorant inhabitants are enslaved by Satan and led captive by him at his will, xxxx O what would be the feelings of Obookiah did he now live to behold the happiness which awaits his dear countrymen. Often did he weep for them, often pour out his soul in prayer that God would send them the gospel. But now he rests in the bosom of his Father, and the prayers which he uttered have come up for a memorial before God and his countrymen are about to hear the news of salvation. At Length we are permitted to behold the land of our expected labours. (Elisha Loomis Journal)
