Js. Fredrick Stahl Esqr. Jubilee College

July 1 1848

Respected & dear Sir

Your favor of May 22 with many others from numerous correspondents is before me now upon my return from Convention

You inclose Three Dollars for the “Motto;” two from your-self, & one from Miss Lucretia Mr [Sean].

I am pleased to hear of your exertions in building a Church edifice and hope that they may be crowned with a blessing. Should I be spared I hope to be able to fulfil your wishes to make you a visit in the fall when your Church will be ready for consecration.

I remember with great pleasure former visits in your family & hope again to share your hospitalities.

I need your prayers and most of all these true Servants of Christ who wish to uphold the hands of their Bishop in planting & extending his Kingdom of “righteousness space” in this Diocese.

I must heartily return the kind wishes of numbers of your family & pray for blessings on you all.

Yours truly

Philand’r Chase

(PS Another No of [the] Motto is in preparation)

Letter to Frederick Stahl
