I am Dr Sr Your most obedt humble...
I know you will excuse Me for addressing you on so coarse so common Paper, when I assure you tis the best our Town affords. Had your Favor reached my Hands a few Minutes later, I shoud have lost this Opportunity of acknowledging the Receipt of it; for my Express was already mounted.
