Montpr. Apl. 25. 1826
I have recd. yours of the 21st. The refusal of the offer to Mr. Wirt, inviting as it was, does not surprize me. It is very gratifying to learn that Mr. Lomax takes so well with everybody. I hope his success will make some amends, for the delay in filling the Chair which is to receive him.
I have made a beginning with Capt. Peyton as the consignee of my business at Richmond, as recomended in yours of the 8th. inst: Affectionately yours
