My dear and venerated Friend

You will see that a favorable opportunity is given me of sending you a line, and will not wonder at my transmitting original letters instead of transcribing their import. Mrs H[artt] you well know. Mr [Crosbre] is well known to Mr West. He is highly qualified by education, & character for the results of education, to fill one of the literary posts in the College, I have no doubt. But I have told him that I think they will be filled by one or more who accompany the Irish Colony. Mr Barry had kept a full journal of his proceedings, which he would like [to] show to you above all others, I have no doubt. We closed his London career at Dr Gaskin’s yesterday. Today [?] up, & tomorrow morning goes to Oxford—from thence to Cotesbach—from thence to Cambridge, Ely, Lincoln, York, Durham, & Edinburgh. From the later (about the 24th June) he means to go to Liverpool, & re-embark. He takes with him your Engraving, and the English Engraving of Kenyon College to append to it. Oh! That I had time to write more. He attended the Anniversary of the P. C. Knowledge Society on Tuesday, & there heard, as all did, a public and most Xtian avowal from the Primate of Ireland that he was deliberately of opinion that nothing could ultimately prevent the completion of the present most [?] Reformation in Ireland. Our hearts are more full of this than anything at present, & have been for some months. My dear Wife, who has just come into my room says she would like to add something. Adieu! Your ever most affectionate friend, G.W. Marriott
