My son Jonathan remember how faithful and loving he was to David the servant of the Lord. My daughter Lidiah remember how Lidiah's heart was opened her ear bored her spirit made willing to receive and obey the apostle in what the Lord required and was baptized and entertained and refreshed the servants of the Lord. Let your conversation in life be squared by the scriptures and they will direct you how to behave toward God and man. And next to loving and fearing the Lord, have you a most dear and tender respect to your faithful, careful, tender-hearted, loving, aged Mother.
Show your duty in all things. Love her with high and cheerful love, and respect and then, make sure you love one another, let it continue and increase so may you be good examples to others. Visit one another as often as you can, and put one another in mind of the uncertainty of life, and what need there is to prepare for death. Take counsel one of another, and if one see cause to advise or reprove the other, hearken to it, and take it well. Be ye content with your present condition and portion God giveth you, and make a good use of what you have by making use of it to your comfort for meat, drink and apparel, it is the gift of God and take care to live honestly, justly, quietly with love and peace with all men.
And forget not to entertain strangers according to your ability. Obadiah Holmes The 17th day 19 Month Chapter 17 - The Seventeenth Century. While Mr. Clarke was preaching from Revelation , two constables entered the house and arrested Clarke, Holmes and Crandall; and the Court sentenced Clarke to pay a fine of twenty pounds, Holmes thirty pounds, and Crandall five pounds, or be publicly whipped.
All conscientiously refused to pay the fines, and were sent back to prison. Some of Mr. Clarke's friends paid his fine without his consent. Crandall was released on a promise to appear at the next Court. Holmes was kept in prison at Boston until September, when, his fine not having been paid, he was brought out and publicly and severely whipped, receiving thirty stripes with a three-corded whip, so that he could take no rest for some weeks except as he lay on his knees and elbows, not being able to suffer any other part of his body to touch the bed.
While he was undergoing the cruel strokes, the Lord gave him a more glorious manifestation of His presence than ever before, so that he scarcely felt the outward pain, and he told the magistrates that they had struck him as with roses, and he prayed the Lord not to lay this sin to their charge. Warrants were issued against thirteen persons, whose only crime was showing some emotions of sympathy towards this innocent sufferer; but eleven escaped, and, while the other two were preparing to receive ten lashes apiece, some friends paid their fines.
Obadiah Holmes was granted two acres for the manufacture of glass in Salem, Massachusetts, in In , he moved his family to Rehoboth, Massachusetts. There in , he was arrested for meeting with others on Sunday, to worship, contrary to the order of the Grand Jury. That same year, he moved to Newport, Rhode Island, and was baptized in the church. In July , he was seized at Lynn, Massachusetts, for being an agent of the Newport Church and kept in prison until September, when he was publicly whipped, receiving 30 lashes.

Daniel Palmer: Obadiah became a leading Baptist minister, and his witness to his faith and his writings are of much interest. He was admitted as a member of the Puritan Church at Salem 24 March Ten years later he moved to Seekonk, Massachusetts, and transferred his membership to the church of the Rev. Samuel Newman. A personal conflict between Holmes and Newman resulted when Obadiah entered a complaint against the minister charging slander for saying that he, Holmes, took false oath in court.
Newman admitted he was in error but the rift between the two men could not be bridged. Obadiah and eight other members withdrew from the Puritan Church and were baptized into the Baptist Church by Rev. John Clark. They were then ex-communicated by the Puritans 5 June and charged with meeting from house to house on the Lord's Day.
Four petitions were presented in the General Court at Plymouth urging that they be speedily suppressed. They were charged by the court not to break bread or preach or baptize.

William Bradford and his gentlemen assistants, two of whom were Capt.
Miles Standish and John Alden, pronounced no sentence against Holmes and Tory, even though they had continued meeting house to house and the Lord's Day, contrary to the order of the court.
In July , Obadiah, the Rev. John Clark, and several other members of the Baptist Church went to Lynn, Massachusetts, to the home of William Witter, who was too old and infirm to attend church. While the Rev. Clark was preaching, the constable entered, seized the visitors, and imprisoned them. Holmes was tried at a court in Boston 31 July and the jury's sentence read: "For as much as you, Obadiah Holmes, being come into this jurisdiction about the 21st of the 5th mo.
Obadiah Holmes refused to pay the fine or to allow his friends to pay it. He was retained in prison until 5 September when he was bound to a post on State Street in Boston and whipped in an unmerciful manner. For many days he could rest only on his knees and elbows as he could not suffer any part of his body to touch the bed.

When he had loosed me from the post, having joyfulness in my heart and cheerfulness in my countenance, as the spectators observed, I told the magistrates, you have struck me with roses I pray God it may not be laid to your charge.
