Mr. West informs me that Mr. Marriott of Queen Square

turn over

Bloomsbury will on your Lordship transmitting the money now sent forward the same to the proper quarter for the purposes of the Ohio Diocese.

Whilst I am putting down these particulars, I feel it to be my duty to express to your Lordship my most unqualified approbation of the sound & truly orthodox sermons, which I have had the privilege to hear to hear from Mr. West. He is a preacher of astonishing talents, and after hearing from him five sermons, in my own Church, I must say that Bishop Chase is highly honored in having such a chaplain, and the Church of Ohio, cannot fail to receive large pecuniary supplies from the efficient services of such a powerful advocate. I wish our excellent & truly apostolical church, had five hundred clergymen so well qualified for their work, as Mr. West appears to be.

I thank your Lordship for standing forward so [manfully] in favour of the Protestant Cause, on a recent important question.

Believe me my Lord, your Lordship’s faithful humble servant

Henry Heap

The Right Honorable Lord Kenyon.

I shall [be] [glad] to hear from your Lordship on the receipt of this letter with its contents.

Mr. West will feel obliged by Mr. Marriott’s favoring him with a few lines at his earliest [convenience].
