Since the receipt of your last letter, application has been made to me, from citizens at Leesburg to know if I would act in the convention if elected, stating certain data, to which they were attached, with an intimation that they concluded that I was so likewise.

Hearing that mr Webster & mr Ticknor will call on you, and indeed that their visit is principally intended for yourself & mr Madison, I take much interest in recommending them to your kind attention. They are known to the public, as citizens of great respectability & talents, and the latter, is well known to you personally, in those lights, so that little is left to me to add, than to bear my...
