As an earnest of a son's gratitude for a parent's untiring devotion and affection, and as a token of the esteem he cherishes for the virtues and Christian fortitude you have ever exhibited, through years of mingled joy and affliction. These letters, from the pen of one whom you so faithfully “served, loved, honored and kept” through a life devoted to laudable ambition and the conscientious performance of his duties, refer to events, many of which must be within the scope of your memory. If, in the additions I have ventured to annex, yet not without misgivings as to my ability to enhance the value of the work, some pleasing remembrances should be revived to you, I shall be more than repaid for the labor they may have cost

YOUR SON,

The Editor. PHILADELPHIA, June 1, 1847.
