England Voyage, Henry Clay


Iver Grove [?] Uxbridge

24 Nov. 1823

Dear Sir

I had yesterday the pleasure of receiving your note of the 20th. I not enclosing a letter from my esteem’d friend the Honorable H. Clay, and I feel much gratified by the opportunity he has given me of forming the pleasure of acquaintance with you and of rendering you any friendly offices and service during your residence in this Country. I regret that my absence from London deprives me of the honor of waiting upon you in person and at the same time requesting of you to favor me with the pleasure of your company at my humble residence for a few days, when it may be convenient to you to do so. I would mention the ensuing week if it should happen to suit you. On Thursday the 4th of Decem. I have to attend and preside at an Anniversary Meeting of an Auxiliary Bible Society in London—you may perhaps not dislike to be present on the occasion, after which I would convey you in my carriage to this place if it should be agreeable to you to accompany me hither.

I am Sir

Your sincere and most humble Servant


Letter to Philander Chase
