I have recd. your letter of the 4th. inst: with the publication contained in it; The opinion I have ever entertained of your integrity & honor, can not be changed by transactions involving controverted details, no longer within the scope of my attentions; nor by any thing short of an evidence of misconduct, which I certainly do not anticipate. Mrs. M. joins in the offer I make of continued esteem & regard.
