Jan. 5. 22.
I thank you Sir for the copy of the 2d edn of your Moral Instructor. I had read the 1st edn with great satisfn and encoraged my family . I do not think the 2d edn has gained by the omission of the extracts from Volney’s L. of nature. it’s publication will be useful, but age & a slippd wrist rendering writing very painful to me, I cannot embark in the promotion of that publicn because it would subject me to writing which is now the oppression of my life, with my wishes for it’s success accept the assurances of my great respects
