Philad. 14th July 1808
I have recieved your favor of 10th. with remittance of 34 17/100 Ds. which ballances the payments made—Whenever I can be made useful, it will gratify me to be so—
After a long life of so much activity & weighty responsibility, you cannot but contemplate with great pleasure, the moment when you have resolved to get rid of the Burthen, & resume without interruption those pursuits, which combine comfort & utility without anxiety—That they may be long continued is the Wish Dr Sir. of Your friend & Servt.
