My dear friend

On My Arrival at this Beloved place it Was My intention to Hasten to quincey and Embrace You Thursday Morning. You know the Circumstances Which Have delayed this eagerly Wished–for Gratification; There Will Be a Compensation in the pleasure to See Your Son Arrived on Next Sunday. Receive the affectionate Respects of Your old friend
