Cumberland, R.I. August 9, 1823.
I take the liberty to forward to you two numbers of my Papers, which, if found unworthy of perusal, will not much enhance your waste-paper surplusage. This enclosure has been ventured from an impression that yours are in accordance with the sentiments of enlightened and liberal Christianity; to the promotion of which the Gospel Palladium is professedly devoted. Will you deign to accept the humble offering?
R. Potter, Jr.
