Excerpt from The Life of Alexander Carson, LL. D Respected and Dear Sir: I Would do great injustice t only to my own, but also to the feelings of those to whom the Rev. Dr. Carson long ministered - those whom, by your unwearied exertions, counsel, and pains-taking philanthropy, you have largely aided me in removing from distress and landlord oppression to this happy land, if I did t ackwledge the many obligations which both they and I owe to you. But, sir, in dedicating the Life of Dr. Carson to you, I must say that I do so neither for the purpose of perpetuating your friendship r of bespeaking your patronage. Your disinterested and uninterrupted attention for the last three years and four months insures the one; and, if needed, your characteristic benevolence would guarantee the other.
