Postscript 338 [ ]
All is over. I have carried into execution my meditated attempt. My situation is totally changed; I now sit down to give an account of it. For several 339 [weeks] after the completion of this dreadful business, my mind was in too tumultuous a state to permit me to write. I think I shall now be able to arrange my thoughts sufficiently for that purpose. 340  Great God! how wondrous, how terrible are the events that have intervened since I was last employed in a similar manner! It is no wonder that my thoughts were solemn, and my mind filled with horrible forebodings!
