Right Reverend and dear Sir

I have long been expecting to hear from you respecting your protegée James George, and to receive further Bills for his education. It is desirable that I should receive theme regularly, that as my funds get low I may have a motive for exertion and an argument to influence the well disposed to assist me in the good work. Your first call I presume was duly answered as my Bakers through whom I paid the money have debited me with the amount. I have heard once from Mrs. George since you kindly took her Son to Jubilee in which she speaks in grateful terms of all that you have done for her, and I trust that the widow’s prayer will bring down upon your labours of love many a blessing from Him who is emphatically the Father of the Fatherless and the God of the Widow. I wrote to you several months ago to request you to send me an acc’t of J. George’s second year’s expenses, but as I have received no answer I fear my letter has not reached its destination. I trust that this will be more fortunate and that in due time I shall hear from you.

How gloomy at present is the prospect of peace between our two kindred nations. May the God of Peace still the troubled waters that love and harmony may be restored. With every sentiment of respect and esteem I am Right Rev’d & Dear Sir

Yours faithfully

T. Holme
