Montpr Ocr 31. 1823
I this moment only receive your letter of the 17th Mine by this mail renders nothing more necessary in answer to it. I understand Mr Crawford is so far recovered that he hopes to be on the road for Washington in a few days. His weakness I presume will make his journey very slow. Sending this with some other letters by an extra messenger who will hardly reach the P. Office in time I add only my affece respects
