I wrote You on the 26th. of May last, by my son John, Via Bourdeaux; to which I beg Leave to refer. I intended to have given You the fullest Information in my Power upon the present gloomy State of American Politics, but the Ship, this Letter goes by, sails to-morrow; and I have had so severe an Attack of the Gout in my Stomach, for two or three Days past, that I have not been able to sit up,...

This, if not timely prevented...

It gives me great pleasure to hear that you have determined again to accept a Seat in the House of Delegates; where I am sure Your Assistance, on many Occasions, will be greatly wanted.
