I regret that I could not have the pleasure of seing you again before you left town, which I found that you had done, when I calld yesterday at your lodgings. I wanted to communicate more fully with you, respecting the part I ought to take, in the ceremonies of this day. It is possible you may be in town to day in which <
I> case I may still enjoy that advantage.
my particular object in sending this is, to inform you, that I shall have the pleasure of dining with you on monday. with great respect & esteem I am dear Sir your friend & servant
