Baltimore July 28. 1834
At the suggestion of my friend Mr John Barney, I have taken the liberty to send you a copy of Swallow Barn which will reach you with this letter.
In this attempt to make a few pictures of the characteristic scenery of the low country, you may perhaps find some agreeable recollections awakened, and derive an hour’s amusement from that source. I shall feel happy in the belief that I have, even in this slightest degree, contributed to your amusement. With the kindest wishes for the restoration of your health I remain Very faithfully Yours
John P. Kennedy
