Chase tells Mr. Allen that he has been sick but hopes to recover soon. He asks him to send a box to New York through Leonard Kip and tells Mr. Allen that there haven't been any new subscriptions since he has been sick.

N. York [20] Feb. 1827

Rev. & Dear Brother

I have been quite sick for several days past with a [Billious] fever. I am better this day but still confined to my room. I do not forget your kindness to me nor that of Mrs A. and all of my dear friends in Phil’a. Tell Mr. Boyd I have r’d his letter and am well pleased with the prompt reply he made to the Rev Mr. Waller’s letter. I would write to Mr. B. but have not strength.

Please send the box to N. York care of Leon’d Kip. It will go by the lakes. The books at my last [advices] from Ohio had not been heard of. I hope Mr Mintzer will tow them along with him as far as Wheeling. I don’t know when I shall go to Ph.’a

Subscrip’s all stagnant since I have been sick.

Tell Mr. Bedell I can’t make out a list of the subscribers for his paper this week but hope to do it next. Farewell: ask all the Brethren to pray for your feeble but very affectionate Brother

Ph’r Chase

Letter to Benjamin Allen
