My dear Sister,

will be so good as to send the enclosed to Dr Tufts, & she will oblige me—I have not time now only to request you to give our love to the dear Lads, who are going to the arms of the best of Parents—May they reach him in safty, & rejoice his heart—My dear Brother, & Sister, have long sacrificed private feelings, to the publick Interest—Though I regret the satisfaction you are deprived of, in not having him return to his Country, & the bosom of his family, at present, yet we must [all] highly approve of the Presidents appointment.

The Stage is come adieu—
