Dear Sir

By the return of the ladies who have favored Mrs Madison with so agreeable a visit, I send back the correspondence with Cooper. It has ended better than I expected.

I learn with the greatest pleasure that your health is so well restored. I hope you will be careful of it. above all avoid the fatigues of the pen.

I do not say with the Spaniards I kiss your hands, but I say with all my heart, God preserve you muchss.
