Washington Mar. 22. 06.
My dear Sir
Some enemy, whom we know not, is sowing tares among us. between you & myself nothing but opportunities of explanation can be necessary to defeat these endeavors. at least on my part, my confidence in you is so unqualified that nothing further is necessary for my satisfaction. I must therefore ask a conversation with you. this evening my company may perhaps stay late: but tomorrow evening, or the next I can be alone. I mention the evening because it is the time at which alone we can be free from interruption: however take the day & hour most convenient to yourself. Accept my affectionate salutations.
