Thomas Douglass, St. Johns, John Kilbourn, Mr. Galindo, Athens and Oxford College, Dudley Chase



Columbus 14 Mar

Dear Wife:

I preached yesterday in Worthington twice - confirmed 5. and lectured in the evening. Came down to day with Thomas Douglass found your good letter of the 10. of Mar: and the accompany letters from Engd. - & Nov Scotia. The latter are most important and [?] most opportunity for the Appendix which is now setting up.

The official papers from St: Johns must be added & this will require another [form] & perhaps a day’s more time. So that if I bring many of the Books with me to Gamr. I I [sic] can not get off till Thursday or Friday.

John Kilbourn is dead. P. Chase

P.S. I thank you for the hint about Galindo. You are right.

Don’t give yourself any trouble about what appeared in the Newspapers against me. It was a malicious publication set up to aid the bull for appropriating All the monies to [Athens] & Oxford College. No good member of the Legis’e. felt offended at what I said. The wicked complained & the good & pious were pleased. Will it not always be so? Read this to Dudley.

P Chase

1831 March. 14
