Right Rev. & Dear Sir
We have got 9500 appeals standing up in the following Periodical Works, which will be published on Tuesday next - Christian Observer, Missionary [Reporter], B[?] [Magazine]. & Christian [?]. I [write] this to take to the printer, in order to its very [?] in a parcel which I shall [direct] him to prepare and send off to you, as you d[evise]. It will contain 200 appeals, which will [probably] suffice to make the case known, [for] the [present] [at least], in and near Oxford.
You will see, by the appeal, that we have got a goodly bit of Bankers and Booksellers to receive [subscriptions]. I will get some advertisements in the papers.
May the good Shepherd and B[ride] of our Lord, direct and [?] your way, and spare you many years to do Him service in the new world of [?] opening before you!
I am ever, my Dear Sir,
with great regard,
Your affectionate friend & servant,
