It being my duty to learn every thing respecting persons or things which is connected with the public interests, I recieve information as with thankfulness from all persons. but I could not recieve it from any were they not assured that it would be secret with me, and never communicated so as to compromit them with others. accordingly what I have recieved from you has never been, nor will be communicated, to any other person. Accept my salutations & respects.
