I have requested your Uncle to advance the money for your Bible on my account; Have you heard Mr. Clay speak in the house?

The practice of borrowing hands to write for me is so modern & my skill in dictating so little familliar that I forgot one half of what I intended to say. Would you believe it was possible for me to forget the Bible and the good Samaritan as I fear I did in my last letter to you. Your Bible shall be sure to you if you can find one in Georgetown or Washington to your satisfaction purchase it...
I have received yours of June 30th. I hope you will come with your Uncle and Aunt and bring my little Susan Maria Clark—whose face I wish to see once more—rely my Child on the God of the Widow and the Fatherless and in him put your trust—I can give you no better advise—I hope to see your Uncle and your Aunt—and yourself and your Babe—but all is uncertain, an honest public Man is the Sport of...
