Before Lady Rosse had the honour and pleasure of receiving the worthy Bishop of Ohio’s very kind letter, she had written an order to her Banker to pay into Miss. [Hoares] [care] 100£ for the Right Rev. Prelate, which she hopes he will honour her by accepting. The great sacrifices he has made of ease comfort almost of health and life as well as of his property made her take this liberty. She rejoices greatly that there is one able and so willing to promote true religion where it is so much wanting and is most anxious for his success and the recovery of his good son. Her wish to be informed of this, and if there are any ideas of building or constructing in anyway places of worship or churches in his Diocese has induced Lady R. to trouble him with this letter that she may learn from the best [?] if she can have the pleasure of spiriting in it or any way, promoting that true Religion which he professes, & which she fears, greatly fears is likely to be taken from poor Ireland this mistaken policy. If religion is destroyed in one country its rising fast in another in cheering & must make one double interested for this “Ron in the heart.” That persecuted I visit Protestants may [?] by it.
