Poplar Forest Ap. 2. 27.
Intending to visit E. Florida this spring, and being entirely unacquainted, I have so far presumed upon your friendship for my Grandfather, and long acquaintance with my Father, as to beg, that you will, favour me with an introduction to any friends or acquaintance that you may have residing there. If not too troublesome any letters that you may enclose to me at Lynchburg, will be gratefully recieved. May I entreat you to present my grateful respects to my old and kind friend Mrs. Madison. With great esteem, respectfully yrs.
