Boston August 10th: 1818:
Among the first objects of my intention on my arrival in this country was that of paying my respects to you. From causes not under my controul I have been dissappointed, and now I am called to make a melancholy visit to new Hampshire. On my return I hope to be gratified, and am in the mean time with the greatest respect, / your obedient Servant
