I fear that you have incurred other expenses on my account - If so, this sum may meet them - & should any thing remain, I. According to the notations at the bottom, this letter was sent to Thomas Thornby, Esq.One of the foremost Unitarian theologians of his time, Channing was also one of the most important Unitarian preachers of the early nineteenth century and known for his articulate and passionate sermons and speeches.
