May 27 1845

Right Rev’d & dear Sir,

Having occasion to send some Copies of a Translation of a work of Dr. Davenant on Justification to your side of the Atlantic--as you had a Copy of my translation of the same author’s Expositio ad Colossenses, I have thought you might like the present work, & beg your acceptance of it. A copy of the second Vol. shall follow.

By a Letter from Bishop McIlvaine, I suffer that the Copy of the Exposition which I sent you when Bishop of Ohio was left in Kenyon College. If so, & you have not obtained another copy of that work, but would take one I will try to procure a copy (not having any myself) & send you with Vol II, of the present work if you will let me know.

Your old friend, [& my] best friend Dear Lady Ross[sic], as you are doubtless aware, has been taken to [her] rest & her reward now some years since. I hope you, my Dear Sir, are enjoying health & strength & seeing the blessing of God rest on your labours. We are strengthening here in troublous times & under gloomy prospects but the Lord reighneth, & will order all for the good of his Church & people, & keep the feel of his [saints].

Praying for every blessing to attend you personally & ministerially, I am Dear & R’t Rev’d Sir

Yours very faithfully

Josiah Allport

PS If you can render me any service in commending [?] work in any quarter I shall be greatly obliged. The Bp of Cashel, who set me upon it, has made it one of his Examining Books [?] Candidates for holy orders
