The Amherst Record for Wednesday 18 April 1877, announced that Jenkins preached his first sermon in the First Church at Pittsfield on the previous Sunday. This letter, with its clear reference to the growing breach between Austin and Susan, evidently acknowledges a call that Mrs. Jenkins made shortly before the family left Amherst in May. The scripture quotation is from Matthew 28.20.
