letter, McIlvaine, Bedell
Cinc. Aug. 25, 1862
My dear Bishop,
In looking over your address to the Convention, I see the names of [Dunn] & [?] among the candidates. The former at his request was dropped on account of ill health, & the latter because he enlisted in the army without any communication with us. Both of these cases correspondence [?] [?] before I went abroad. I mention it now lest you should [?] them [?] candidates in your report to the Gen. Cinc.
Mr. Andrews suggests a meeting of Trustees when the [?] Con meets at Columbus. What do you think of it.
I am still suffering very much from external afflictions which help to weaken me, so that I leave the house very little.
Yours affectionately,Charles P. McIlvaine
Mr. Cox is expected for next Sunday. They have given up [?] at St. [?] [four] [weeks] [?] of [?] having gone to him in that authority & urged it on him, & of course he said no. I do not think they have anybody now [?] new.
The Sheriff has advantaged the Ch. for site for a debt of $2400. Of course it will not be sold but it is a disgrace.
