Fragment of a letter in which Kenyon discusses Chase's English supporters.




Mr. Wiggin, Manchester, Bishop of Chester, Judge Park, Ealing, Dr. Gaskin, G.W. Marriott, Mrs. Chase



Your affectionate wishes for the increase of attachment betw’n good Mr. Wiggin & me, are rapidly realizing. I am just united with him in the District C[?] for promoting this knowledge at Manchester. [Our] new Bishop at Chester has been [attacked] by us both to support Ohio, & I anticipate that in due time he is [?] sure to do so. Our friend Wiggin is about to send his son to a Tutor where Judge Park had a son, at Ealing I think, near London. I am quite glad our friend is so drawn forward at Manchester on such an occasion. He was highly pleased with our new Bishop, for a reason [?] to them both, on account of the zeal piety & good [sense] of the Bishop. Be not afraid my very dear Bishop that any wish of yours which I can attend to will be neglected or not attended to with delight. I think our excellent friend G.W. Marriott is his [?] favorite, but I know he is good Dr. G. likewise as well as other [?]; & I can never be jealous of so valued & kind a friend. I must beg my grateful thanks to Mrs. Chase for her kind sentiments tow’ds me & mine, & can assure her she will have much [ado] to respect & love her [our] Bishop more than do my family & your ever obliged & affectionate friend,


Your kind letter dated 10 Nov. arrived here 23rd on my return from examining my 3rd school. [Cut off] 100 each or more.
