28th February 1825

Right Reverend and dear Sir

Tho’ on all the hurry of setting out this day for my Circuit (which takes me five weeks from home) I cannot but acknowledge your letter of the 23rd instant from Hull, which reached me by the Twopenny Post last night. I lament very sincerely to say that your letter of the 12th instant has never reached me, nor could I account for what appeared to be a very long silence on your part. I had great satisfaction, however, in hearing that the conciliatory measures of which I had endeavored to lay the foundation, were proceeding in your absence, which, tho’ I could not but lament on other grounds, I therefore hope will not be materially prejudicial to the success of a most important project. I am most thankful that no illness, or other untoward accident, as now appears has happened to you. Should your plan allow of paying my Brother a visit, I hope you will do so, for, except to bring you here, I never have eased to wish that visit accomplished.

I trust your wishes and prayers will be granted in the peace and prosperity of your Jerusalem.

I am, Right Reverend and dear Sir,

With great esteem,

Your obliged and faithful Friend and [S]

G.W. Marriott

I let this take it’s chance of reaching you. There is a letter at this house for you from Manchester, and, I understand, many at your lodgings.

Letter to Bp. Chase
