Rev. Ward encourages Bp. Chase to found a Bible Society in Ohio, describing how successful they have been in England. Ward denounces partisanship in the church but does clarify his support for Chase over Bp. Hobart and agrees that the Western provinces in the U.S. require help from the Church before those in the East. He assures Chase that he has many friends in Colchester and that his visit will be remembered for a long time.
