Montpr. Feby. 11th. 35.
I have received your communication relating to the survey of the coast and thank you for it. Finding that my great age now within a few days of its 85th. year, with a constitution & health severely crippled by disease did not permit me to give the attention due to the printed Documents, I can only refer to my former letters for an expression of the sentiments and good wishes retained for you adding the hope that your accounts with the Govt will not fail of a satisfactory adjustment. with friendly salutations
signed. (J. M.)
