Nly dear friends of the missionlry cause in Eil. gland,— Worn out in mind and body, I return now to this country, and arrived at Cowes, in the Isle of VV ight, yesterday from America, and not knowing' whether my wife and child are returned from France, ] expect hei-e ttle answer from my dear wife. 1 have traversed these last two years the whole of Yernell, Abyssinia, as far as Axum; but on arriving at Ad wall I found Mr Gobat, the missionary, very ill, and therefore, I re-accompanied him to Jiddah, Ar- riving at Jidd,,h, I -ii,,d to see, previous to my return to Ahyssinia, the Jews at SIljzia. I arrived safely at Sanaa, saw the Jews and fieehabite. aDd the cbildreu of Hohab, another branch of the Reciia- bites; but was horse- vhipped by the Bedouins on nty return to Mocha; and on arriving at Hodeydah, on my return to Abyssinia, I got so ill with fever,' that 1 was obliged to jive up my journey to Abys- siuia. I embarked at Jiddah for Hindustan, thence to St. Helena, where I lectured and then preached; and then proceeded on my way to America, where I wasordained by the Right Rev. Dr. Doane, Bishop of .New Jersey. I weni on to Washington, and, intro- duced by Mr John Quincy Adams, the ex-president, to Coiigres, I preached before both houses on the importance of missions; and now I am again here in Knglj^d, worn out, and probably shall soon finish iny dayiio-ii eaith in this happy country, in the circle of my wife and child. The dissolution of my body is hastening fast.—Your's truly, "JOSEPH WOLFF, Missionary."
