Cincinnati Ap. 3 / 60


Right Rev + dear Sir -

Your kind letter [?] Mr. P[?]’s pamphlet has just reached me. I have not seen it, + only know what it is by a line from a clergyman who says it is against me + who writes to say for himself + [those] that what is said of their approval of Mr. P’s course or something of that sort is untrue. The poor man is decayed, + on that account I have [?] him in residing in my diocese for several years, without being transformed from Western N.Y. through the [?] limits such resdience to six months.

I gave him an offence he never forgets, in [?] to the [?] Judge Lance, President Judge of the [?] Court of Ohio _ a most [develish] man in character whom Mr. P. had suspended because he removed his children from Mr. P’s Sunday School when the latter was Rector of the parish in Norwalk, O. I do not know what to do with him.

Wishing you much precious blessings during this week, + on Easter Sunday, + that we may all be “partaken of his resurrection,” I remain,

Very [amciably]

Your friend + [brother]

Chas. P. McIlvaine

Right Rev W.R. Whittingham.
