Your Favor of the 11th inst is before me; an opportunity of sending your print to Washington offers tomorrow by a fast sailing packet. I have therefore enclosed it in a tin tube, and that in a wooden Case, and addressed it to Mr Cutts, to whom the Captain Lynch promises to deliver it. I hope it will reach you in perfect safety, & meet your approbation.
The price of the print is Twenty dollars— — —$20u
the packing cases cost One do — — — —$1.
Which you will either remit to me, or retain until I shall have the honor of paying my personal respects to you at Montpellier, which I hope to do next Spring
I beg you to present to Mrs Madison the united Respects of Mrs Trumbull & myself and to accept the best wishes of Sir Your obliged & faithful Servant
