Transcript

To Bishop Chase, July 1824

Rt. Reverend and honoured Sir,

Condescend to receive the enclosed £20 for your private expenses through the medium of one not worthy to be remembered among the people of God. Let it not grieve you that occasionally your Heavenly Master still employs [?] in [works] of Love; and permit that [?] be in a small [?] to [?] to you. I entreat that you will not mention this on this side of the Atlantic. Nor to any one but your wife. I may be doing a very impertinent thing, but I doubt not you will pardon my folly. May God give you great success; and keep you reasonable and happy in all time of your prosperity; for the sake of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am with much affectionate respect,

I beg not to be known

I am ashamed.
