VAN HORNE TO WORTHINGTON
Zanesville 4th June 1813
The Revd. Stephen Lindsley having been brought forward for a Chaplain, and known to his neighbours &c, he has expressed an anxiety about it. He has accordingly been recommended from this place, as you will se by the enclosed. To you and Colleages it is now submitted.
I think Mr. Lindsley an able minister, and bids fair, it appointed, to be highly usefull in his station.
I congratulate you on our success at York. I hope and trust the tide is turning, and that the enemy will be made to fire that nations, as well as individuals, must bend to law & Justice.
The wanton depredations, on private property, the savage barbarity permited & exercised over the liberty & lives of our Citizens, is producing that general indignation & union of sentiment against the conmon enemy, that were paralised, and kept down by our internal foes.
accept sir, the assurances of my esteem
