Excerpt from Thirty Years Correspondence, Vol. 1 of 2: Between John Jebb, D. D. Bishop of Limerick, Ardfert and Aghadoe, and Alexander Kx The above letter is almost the earliest of a series, terminating only with the year of Mr. Kx's death, (1831, ) which the editor has long cherished, among his choicest treasures. How much he owes to this correspondence, .. how much to the free, familiar, yet paternal converse, of many thousand happy hours, .. how much to the uniform example of this true-hearted Christian philosopher, will t be kwn, until the secrets of all hearts are disclosed. But thus much he can say, with certainty, that scarce a day elapses, in which some energetic truth, some pregnant principle, or some happy illustration, (and those illustrations were always powerful arguments, ) does t present itself, for which he was primarily indebted to the ever-salient mind of Alexander Kx.
