(sic) 1841, one month previous to his immersion and more than {one} month before his asmifsion (sic=admission) into the Church. likewise his denial of the charge was communicated. As the offense was committed before his profefsion (sic=profession) of Christianity it was considered that the Church had no cognizance of the act, inasmuch as all his sins were forgiven in submitting to Christ, the only question to be determined whether an offense since he became a member of the Church {or?} had grown out of it.  it was considered inasmuch as he plead innocent to the charge, none and therefore it would not be right to exclude him. {NOTE: missing caps on beginning of sentences.}
