Elizabeth Pratt, Philander Chase, sermons


London March 12th


My dear Bishop Chase

I begged by husband to make a request for me which I find he has forgotten, and as he has closed his letter, I shall have the pleasure of doing it myself, which gives me the opportunity of assuring you how after you are in our thoughts and how much we have sympathized with you & your family in your various trials.

When you were in England you repeated to us a little [?] on the words, “I would not [?] always” -- I thought it very beautiful, and have often regretted that I did not ask you for a copy of it-- my request is that when you next write to Mr. Pratt you will be kind enough to send it me.

I wish also to express my Christian love & esteem for Mrs Chase, who has borne with you the “burden & heart of the [day]” and has made herself a pattern to all Christian wives by her [unvaried] faith & labour, & her strengthening the hands of her husband, in all his difficulties.

Believe me dear Sir

Yours with much esteem

Elizabeth Pratt
