Boston June 23rd 1816
I have received your letter dated May 15th. 1816 which I was very much interested with, and pleased me very much.
As to your question of what country man I am, I think you ought to know that I never would desert my own country not for any thing
Where I was born I do not remember nor I think never knew till you told me, that was in your last letter and so I take the liberty to fill my letter up with this nonsense but Mamma told me to write as I talk so I will send this I hope you will excuse it because it is so badly written to what my others are and I am in such an awkard place to write one and have some more to write so.
With love and duty to all at home / Believe me Dear Grandpapa / I remain / Your affectionate Grandson
