After waiting on m r. Dumas we went two Days ago, by Appointment to the Baron de Thulemeier’s.

I am happy to be able to add to the testimony of Purdie’s being a Citizen of the United States. I remember perfectly being at College at Williamsburg with a person of that name, and that he was son of the Postmaster General at that place. I not only recollect the name and knew the family while at College, but I recollect also the person of Purdie so as to be able to swear to his identity if I...
I thank you most sincerely for your two kind and faithful letters, the first of the 5th. inst. the second without date recieved this morning.
