Be pleased to accept this tribute of my gratitude. That it is the constant character of your Grace's nature, to conceal the benefits which it confers, I well know; and I am fearful lest this offering should offend, where I most anxiously wish it to be received with favour: Yet, when a whole happy Tenantry are voting public monuments to perpetuate the memory of your Grace's paternal benevolence to them, I hope, my Lord, that I am not, any longer, forbidden openly to acknowledge my own great obligations to your munificence.

Your Grace has thought me worthy of your bountiful patronage; and I may not presume to say, how little I deserve it..

May your Grace live, long to be the ornament of your ancient and illustrious Race,-and may your princely Name continue to latest time, revered and beloved in a Posterity emulous of all those public and private Virtues, which are now honoured in your Grace, and can meet their full reward then only, when your Country shall have occasion to mourn your loss !

With the most profound respect, and the most grateful affection,

I am,

My Lord Duke, Your Grace's devoted servant,

JOHN PHILIP KEMBLE.

June 17, 1817. Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury Square.
