Letter to Bishop Potter from Henry Onderdonk Jr. asking the bishop to accept a copy of his studies.


Jamaica, L.D. May 16, 1882

Bishop Potter

          Right Rev. & Dear Sir,

                                        As you once had jurisdiction over Grace Church in this place I beg you to accept a copy of the studies I have made in the antiquities of this ancient Parish. Though much of it remains in obscurity, yet I think some light has been shed on its early history by my labors - which have truly been labors of love.

With sincerest esteem I remain
most truly Yours.

Henry Onderdonk Jr.
