KE]NNEDY TO ABERDEEN7
No. 15. Her Majesty's Consulate.
Galveston, July 8th. 1844.
I have had the honor to receive Your Lordship's despatch, No 3
of this years series, and beg to tender my grateful acknowledg-
ment of your considerate kindness, in granting me the permission
it conveys to seek change of air and scene, for the more speedy
re-establishment of my health.
Being sufficiently restored to attend to my various duties, I do
not (in the absence of Her Majesty's Charge d'Affaires) propose
to avail myself of the leave until the beginning of September next,
when European Shipping will have ceased for a time to frequent
this Port; nor, even then, should any exigency render it expedient
that I should remain at my post.
I were unworthy of the interest in my welfare indicated by
Your Lordship's permission, had it not the effect of quickening
my anxiety for the efficient and full discharge of the obligations
of my official trust, and of lightening the sense of any personal
sacrifice which a conscientious estimate of the weight and extent
of those obligations might call upon me to make.
The Earl of Aberdeen, K. T.
