Remember McIlvaine's suggestion of Edward Harrison of Brooklyn for Assistant Tax Collector




letter, McIlvaine, Chase


New York, House of Bishops

Oct. 10, 1862

My dear Mr. Chase,

I enclose a copy (prepared by myself) of the service used on Wednesday last, in Trinity Ch. by the House of Bps and the Clerical and Lay Deputies of the other House of the Gen. C[onvention], and a large additional congregation the [?] having been set apart for themselves by the Bishops--and the other House having been invited to join. I never attended a more [?] service.

I am sorry to hear of your [?] and hope it is fast passing away.

Please remember my application for a place of assistant collector under the Tax Law of my friend Mr. Edward Harrison of Brooklyn. He lives in the 3rd District of which Henry C. Bowen is the collector and Alfred M. Wood is Collector of the 2nd and is known by search of Mr. Harrison’s friends. Mr. Harrison informs me that all the assistants in these Districts have not been appointed. A word from you to either of them would do all and because the case is special I would earnestly ask of you the k[indness].

Yours affectionately

Charles P. McIlvaine

Mr. Harrison’s address is Edward Harrison 240

Cumberland [?] Brooklyn
