Philadelphia Ap. 22/58

My dear [?] [Carus],

You will open your kind affectionate hospitality to the bearer of this–one who knows you well, especially through the bond of the life of [?] of which he has been the wide distributor–the bishop of Pennsylvania, Dr. Potter, one of our best Bishops, and most learned and efficient [workers] in the Master’s service. I am sorry to say that his health has suffered so especially by being greatly over-worked, that entire [?] of all that would talk or excite is demanded of him, and he therefore seeks rest in going abroad, and thinks of getting some quiet [?] on the [?] of [?].

I know what pleasure it would give you to facilitate, in any way, his plans. He [?] [Mr.] Potter and others of his family, and I hope [Mr.] Carus may meet them. I need say no more. You will welcome them with all your affectionate kinship.

With love to [Mrs.] Carus

Your affectionate [brother]

Charl. P. McIlvaine
