Devonshire, Thomas Acland, Mr. Wiggin


July 2, 1824

My Dear Lord Kenyon,

I am now at [Cross] on my way to Devonshire. Sir Thomas and Lady Acland are in the same Inn; but not yet risen being not 6 in the morning.

Yesterday from Mr. Harford’s at the B[laize] Castle where we had been most hospitably entertained we moved to Barleywood where I had the great satisfaction of seeing and convening with that enormously excellent woman Mrs. H. More. I saw there the Bishop of Lichfield & Coventry, the Dean of — Mr. Pa[rkingham] and several others.

After nine we rode to this humble town where after a quiet night’s rest I have the pleasure of praying my God to bless one of the best friends I ever had Lord Kenyon.

Do love Mr. Wiggin, and some how or other join the other remarkable [?] of God Providence in leaving him to the only [fountain] of mercy the Atonement which the son of God hath made for us.

God grant [?] your daughters! I am your Lordship’s most obliged and affectionate friend,

Ph. Chase
