John C. Templer, Esq.
Penang Hill, April 29, 1850.
My dear Jack,
If I were to say that I expected you to do less than you have done, I should do an injustice both to your friendship and to my own, and more, I am sure you could not do, than has been done, and done so judiciously and well.
How shall I thank you, ray dear friend? not in words, for I could not express the every day affection I have for you, and much less my sense of the stand you have made, in defence of my character and honour against the reproaches cast upon both, by men, whose motives I cannot even guess at, but whose falsehood and shamelessness and unfairness must ultimately injure themselves, far more than they can injure me. I can only thank you from my heart, and you must judge my heart by your own.
