Letter to Dudley Chase
Download Full Text (1.0 MB)
My Dear Uncle,
In this as our envelope of a letter to our good Bp. are a few hasty lines to acknowledge the receipt of yours of the 20th and to express the sincere pleasure it communicated to us all. May all your kind wishes be returned to yours and yourself a hundred and a thousand fold, as the prayer of dear R. of your unworthy nephew, it would be the prayer also of our sweet little Mary could she once see and know her own and her fathers friend. She is, as they say, the picture of health, and bears a strong resemblance to our dear Philaner. Her mother requests also to be affectionately remembered to her “Uncle Dudley”, whom, having not seen, she loveth.
Not knowing the Bishop’s address at the moment, I must ask the favor of you to place it on the enclosed letter and to forward to him by mail; amd I need not say how glad we shall be to hear from both yourself and him very frequently, if not too much trouble. Excuse the brevity of this and believe me affectionately.
