I beg to return you my kind thanks for the expression of your confidence in offering to support me as one of the Representatives at the ensuing Election. I will give the subject my most serious consideration, and should I find your feelings and wishes reciprocated by the great body of the Electors of the District, I shall have no hesitation in offering myself a Candidate, and will acquaint you with my determination on Tuesday next.

I have the honor to be your obliged servant,



July 13th, 1846.

Although Francis Kelly was defeated in this election, he ran again, and held the seat for over twenty-five years until his death in 1879.
