Highland Sepr 20. 1823.
The unfavorable State of the weather since my arrival here, has kept me so much confind, that I have been unable, to pay, that attention to my affairs, that I should otherwise have done. I shall however be with you in the course of the ensuing week. I send you a letter from Judge Nelson, & two from Mr Appleton, which give the latest accounts, from them, of affairs in Spain. I send you also, one, from Mr Calhoun, which contains the information desird, of the vote in the Senate, on the nomination of Genl. Armstrong—
very sincerely dear Sir yours
Retain the letters from Spain until we arrive—
