Approbation of Brownson by all the American Bishops Attending the Council of Baltimore

Baltimore, 13th May, 1849
DEAR SIR, ----
After the close of our Council, I suggested to our venerable metropolitan the propriety of encouraging you by our approbation and influence to continue your literary labors in defense of the faith, of which you have proved an able and intrepid advocate. He received the suggestion most readily, and I take the liberty of communicating the fact to you, as a mark of my sincere esteem, and of the deep interest I feel in your excellent Review. I shall beg of him and of other prelates who entertain the same views, to subscribe their names in confirmation of my statement.
Your devoted friend,
Bishop of Philadelphia.
