Knight regrets that he will not see Chase again before he leaves and wishes him well.




Manchester, voyage to America, Halifax


Vicarage Halifax, July 12, 1824

Right Reverend & very dear Sir,

Two things grieve me at this moment. One is that I am so exceedingly engaged with what must be done forthwith, that I shall scarcely be able to fill one side of my sheet. The other is, that a plan, which I had formed, & on the execution of which I had been (perhaps unduly) counting, has been frustrated by a letter received this morning. The plan was to be at Manchester tomorrow, to take leave of you personally, previous to your leaving England. As it is, I can only cordially thank you for your kind & much-valued letter, & express to you my hearty good wishes & prayers (which are no less those of my family than my own) that the presence of the Blessing of the great Head of the Church may be abundantly with you, that he may prosper you in your Labour of Love, & in your soul. Accept the most respectful & affectionate remembrances of my household, along with those of a Right Rev. & Dear Sir,

Yours most truly,

S. Knight


By the same post, [?] will bring you this. You will receive a supply from a Haven, the safe receipt of which I must request you to acknowledge in a line to me.

Letter to Philander Chase
