Baltimore June 19. 1834.
I have taken the liberty to send you by the mail that takes this a copy of my discourse on the Life & Character of Wm Wirt. The interest which you have always exhibited in the success of the subject of this memoir will perhaps incline you to a favourable regard for this attempt to preserve his memory with the American people. I trust it may find you restored to health and in the enjoyment of the prospect of yet many happy days amongst a generation who take the deepest concern in every thing that relates to the comfort of your age. Very truly yours &c
John P. Kennedy
