He died away from home after suffering about ten days, as the result of traveling in bad weather to settle a dispute between a dying father and his son.
“Weep not for me, but for yourselves. I go to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will, no doubt, through the mediation of his blessed Son, receive me, though a sinner; where I hope we ere long shall meet, to sing the new song, and remain everlastingly happy, world without end. Amen…
“Take me, for I come to thee.”
