Col. Coll. N. Y. May 13th. 1835.
I have had the honour of receiving your favour of the 5th Inst. and beg leave to tender my grateful & respectful thanks for your obliging compliance with my request—and to assure that your injuctions against the publicity you deprecate shall be scrupulously observed.
I lament that I have not found amongst my fathers papers the letters to him from yourself referred to in your letter—nor have I ever seen any draft of his letters to you in the occasion you mention. I therefore accept your obliging offer to have them copied and sent to me. With my best acknowledgements for your kindness I remain Dear Sir With the highest respect & Esteem Very faithfully Yours
W. A. Duer.
