Dear Bishop Chase,

If I do not write a line by this post, I shall be too late, I therefore can only scribble this, as it is ½ past ten.

The Rev. Mr. Jones, the Rev. Mr. Budd[?], & the Rev. Mr. Tafemall are good men at Liverpool. I hope Ohio will not be overlooked there. It is a large & healthy place.

Our list is going on, though not so fast as I could wish. We are just under £100. We have sent letters in all directions, & packets to Manningtree, Harwick, & [?]wich.

Let me have one line when you arrive in America, as to your own health & strength, & to the cause. Send me & wife & children your blessing.

The Lord comfort your heart & establish you in every good hard work. The Lord prosper you in the present & every future effort to do good. The Lord pour upon your people the rich effusion of His spirit, & reward, with a reward of Grace, your own family, for the loan lent unto the Lord.

Mrs. Marsh will send Christian love to Mrs. Chase, whether you will carry it or not.

May I meet you in the kingdom of our Lord!

With most affectionate & respectfully,

W. Marsh.

July 12/24 Colchester
