South Bend, Indiana, Mr. Douglass, Mr. Bronson



Gilead Augt. 8. 1833

My dear Nephew

I was exceedingly mortified on my return home to find my letter of the 13th [inst] had not been mailed. Inclose it now for your perusal. Do pardon this neglect

- My tour to the west - to [Cassappolis] Niles, South Bend (Inda) &c - I have been enabled to perform in 11 days. The times of my public speaking & divine service were 17. I hope some good has been done to the Church of the Redeemer. I found my family in perfect health on my return. I have told all my Friends at the west that you will perform the next tour.

Do call on Mr. Douglass, and beg him to pay you what he owes me for the rent in my farm. I have left it to his honesty to say how much that is.

I am just now going to Bronson’s Prarie and not another moment to spare but to say

I am your faithful

Friend. Phir. Chase

Letter to his nephew
