Fear We Are Forgotten

A selection from a letter by missionary William Carey to one of his dearest friends, Andrew Fuller, a supporting pastor in England. The mail was not always reliable and caused concerns whether his work had been forgotten. The letter was written January 21, 1802.

Our dear Brethren in England are not forgotten by us in our prayers, tho we have some reason to fear we are forgotten by them, it being now a year and a half, at least, since the date of the last letter we received.
