In a letter sent to Rev. George Boyd, Chase thanks Mr. Allen for his letter and hopes to see him soon. He does not yet have enough money for the pamphlet, but asks Allen to pray for the success of the College's efforts.




Allen, Jones, pamphlet, Philadelphia, Gambier


15 April

Very Dr. Brother Allen

I thank you for your letter inclosing a note to Jones. Pray what shall I do with it? He has gone to Phila.

I am glad at the prospect of seeing you here before I die, at Gambier.

I should not send you so trifling a letter as this but that I can frank. Yours was so heavy heavy [sic] as to be over weight 25. Remember that more than ½ oz is above my consequence. My Dear Wife remembers you and yours with much love and esteem.

Something begins to come in to help me on; but not enough yet to pay for the pamphlet.

May I have your prayer that we fail not in this our last effort for a continuation of our existence as a College. “I shall never ask again: but submit I trust with resignation to the will of God.

Do give my love to your lovely Daughters & believe me as ever

Your grateful

& faithful Friend

Phr. Chase

P. Chase P.M.

Rev. Geo. Boyd
