I am directed by the President of the United States to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 8th of October. For the favourable sentiments you have therein been pleased to express for him, he offers you his thanks. To receive the approbation of his fellow Citizens at a time when he is about to retire from public service is a circumstance truly gratifying; and that not less so when expressed by an individual Citizen. I am Sir Your Mo. Obedt Servt
