Philadelphia May 3d. 1798—


Your handsome Address, which has been presented <by your Representative in Congress. Mr Bayard> to me in a Letter from Mr Ridgely your foreman, demonstrates your attachment to your Country, and is a sensible gratification to me—

If as you believe my administration, has given entire satisfaction, one of the most ardent wishes of my heart will be satisfied and as your obliging assurance of it, is the highest reward in your power to bestow upon me, it receives my sincere thanks
