My dear friend

I am very Sorry to find that You leave Europe Before I Have the pleasure to take you By the Hand. Let me at least Enjoy the Satisfaction to wish You and Your family a Most Happy voyage, and to Anticipate Your feelings on Your touching the Blessed Shores of Liberty, and Entering our Good town of Boston. Be So kind as to Remember me very affectionately to all friends. I am Sorry I Have not yet the Printed journals of the Assembly of Auvergne which would at once Satisfy You on the object of Your Enquiries. But they Shall Be sent to Boston By the Next opportunity. I once more Give You joy on your prospect to See Before long a Country the liberty and prosperity of which You Have So Much Contributed, and which in wellcoming You will at once Aknowledge Past, present, and future obligations. with Most Sincere Affection and Regard / Yours
