Dear Miss Gass
Being in Dublin
to-day I despatched
by rail the Pulpit Bible
to you, care of
Station Master at
Markethill to be
kept till called for
I trust it will arrive
safe & that it may
be in the hands of
the Spirit salvation
to every soul that hears
it Cost #1-3-6 &
whatever the carriage
may be. Whatever you
are short let me know.
I think you shd [should?] have
a Psalm Book, to
correspond. You have
done a good work
& one that will bring
no regrets. By all
means let it be in the
name of the Ladies of
the Congregation & my
Brother & they can fix
on some suitable
inscription. So far as
I am aware My Brother
is ignorant of the whole
affair. Tell the Ladies
I congratulate them every
one upon the good spirit
they have evinced & the
success attendant.
Kindest regards
faithfully yours,
Jas. [James?] Shannon
Miss Gass,
It is wonderful what can
be accomplished by union!
