Worthington, Ohio

Dear Brother;

I am every day recovering from the effects of my late very severe fall. Yesterday Christmas day I officiated and tho’ fatigue and pain were somewhat yet with my crutches and, otherwise, good health, I got on very well.

I inclose you some letters which by the privilege invested in you I hope you will have the goodness to make free to the places of [their] destination. I have left the place of residence of my dear Mother say blank not knowing whether she be moved back to Vermt. or not. Of this I presume you are apprised.

The passing holy season anniversary of our Saviour’s Nativity prompts me to offer many & very sincere prayers for you my Dear Brother. May God Almighty lengthen your days of usefulness and grant that each returning reason may find you blessed!

Your first [favr.] from Washington was r’d. in due time for which I thank you.

Your faithful and affectionate Brother,

Phi’r. Chase
