Montpellier Aug. 5. 1819
I pay with much pleasure the debt of thanks for the copy of Mr. Wells’s Oration so kindly forwarded by you. It is a concise and well presented view of the great event celebrated, with a judicious selection of circumstances proper to be combined with it.
I avail myself of this as of every occasion of renewing to you assurances of my high esteem and best wishes.
